More than 100 motorcycles hit the road on Sunday morning to raise money for a good cause.

The first Motormen Breeze-Out took place to benefit the Wayne County Sheriff's Department’s Motorcycle Unit, led by Sgt. Lee Smith.

The money will go to helping the unit continue its community service.

According to Sgt. Smith, the money will help, "keep our motorcycles running, so we don’t have any broke down."

“It’s a great cause,” said Jeff Scott of Dick Scott Classic Motorcycles. “I couldn’t be happier to do it and proud to help them out. They do a lot for us and we appreciate everything they do.”

On behalf of Sheriff Benny Napoleon, Sgt Smith took part in the fundraiser along with other law enforcement including Border Patrol, as well as biker clubs.

The group started at Dick Scott Motorcycles in Westland Sunday morning.

They traveled for 55 miles through several municipalities. Those who took part in the event were amazed at all of the support from drivers riding by.

“Tremendous," Louis Ferris of the Wayne County Deputy Reserve Mounted Unit said. "Hands raising, people clapping."

“It’s fantastic. Just riding in a police led ride is fantastic. You don’t have to stop and the sirens are going,” said Scott.  “It’s the perfect day.”

Organizers plan to make Motormen Breeze-Out an annual event.
