Raised in Elkin and graduated from East Wilkes! Beautiful country and ride through north wilkesboro to west jefferson. I am going on a ride tomorrow to Deal's gap with about 30 other riders (no VTX's unfortunately, only Harley's and me). If I find out further than one day out, I will let everyone know ahead of time. We will be up there tomorrow afternoon if anyone else makes the ride...I will be the lone VTX rider.
