David Holland visited from Virginia Beach, VA. He took a few days vacation to wander with the only destination he had to get to being FCL. He was very happy to walk out of here with a pair of Beltless chaps that fit him as he’d had trouble in the past with chaps fitting correctly. He also ordered a Build Your Own Classic Vest in Buffalo Chocolate. He left FCL headed towards the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Ray Collins and his wife from Elkwood, VA were camping in Wytheville, VA and googled "leather shops near me". They drove down and bought a women's Zippered Touring vest, men's Classic Motorcycle vest, men's Summer Riding jacket, and sunglasses.
