Who let the HOGs out?

The thunder you may hear over the next four days won't just be coming from the storms that continue to batter Floyd County and the rest of Southwestern Virginia. A couple thousand Harley-Davidsons will descend on Roanoke on Wednesday for the beginning of the 2009 Virginia Harley Owners Group (HOG) rally.

Two planned group rides will venture up the Blue Ridge Parkway to Mabry Mill and Floyd is listed as a place to visit for those attending the rally.

As a member of the Roanoke Valley HOG chapter, I'll be helping out with the rally Wednesday-Friday and will be away from the studio but will be back in Floyd Saturday to cover the Town Jubilee for The Floyd Press.
