It could be you or it could be the guy sitting next to you, So here are some of the DETAILS. What started off 8 years ago as a BACKYARD BBQ to say thanks to the VIRGINIA X RIDERS for taking us in as family and friends, has now grown to one of the largest Gatherings for the VTX' ers anywhere in the world, with 320 attendees in 2011 and 31 states represented, 178 attendees in 2012, not a bad turnout at all, due to having to move the date due to work and it was Memorial Day weekend, the kickoff to summer. We are looking forward to continue to grow and meet even more faces, friends, and family in 2013.The long distance riders in the past have been CYBRHICK, FLYBOY, GEEZERGLIDE1 (RIP), AND TMICHAEL, Lets see who travels the farthest this year. The Gathering is put on and funded by the Toombs and ECG Family, (we couldn't do it without your help).

Both moments were tear jerkers and meant alot to everyone involved.
