Help Needed in the Salem, VA Area

I am posting this for a fellow GOGger. If any of you can offer assistance, it would be much appreciated.

He writes:

Hi,
I am a SECOG AAD and lost my tank bag in Salem VA while riding the Redwing 19 ride this past Saturday. Could you forward this to the NEGOG members? I am hoping someone could find my missing/lost tank bag and camers.

Thank you
David Sturgis
SECOG AAD NEFL Jacksonville


On Saturday May 16th I was riding in the Redwing 19 fund raiser for NAVY SEALS and ARMY Aviators (
www.redwing19.com) and somehow lost my motorcycle tank bag. It is black and is about 12" X 8" X 8". I had it in Burger King but may have left it by the gas pumps or in the parking lot along the roadway.

The tank bag is black and has two magnetic flaps that hold it to the bike. Inside is a Kodak pocket digital camera with some special memory photos of the trip, my diabetes testing equipment, 2 cell phone batteries and a Leatherman pocket multitool. It may have come off my motorcycle when I was leaving the gas station and going to the southbound onramp for I-81 to ride to Bristol.

His addy is:

More specific Info

I received the following this a.m., which might help pinpoint the location:


We were traveling southbound on 81 and stopped at the Liberty Gas station. The business address is:

Liberty Food Mart
114 Sheraton Dr
Salem, VA 24153
(540) 562-2549

One of our party had been pulled over by the state police on I-81 so we ducked into the next exit to wait for him. This was the closest and we gassed up and I went into Burger King (same building) and got a quick bite. I am almost positive I carried my tank bag out of BK and set it down next to my bike, which was parked along the main road (419/Electric Dr). I may have laid the tank bag on the back of my bike since it was not on the tank. I left the gas station and we took the southbound exit back onto I-81. From retracing my route in my mind I would figure it would be either along the road or on the shoulder, most likely the right shoulder (going southbound) since we were all pretty shook-up about being pulled over and were watching our speed closely. This happened just north of the strict enforcement zone.

No luck but talked to him this morning and suggested he call VDOT on the off chance they picked it up. Didn't have much hope but figured I would want to know one way or the other if it was mine.
