Final Fall Fling ride November 9 & 10 (Northern Arkansas)
« on: October 25, 2018, 05:35:53 pm »
Figured I would post this here also. Let me know if you are interested.

Ok folks here is an opportunity to get in one more ride before the holidays. The "Final Fall Fling" ride will be held in Clinton Arkansas on November 9th &, 10th. The hotel location is the Best Western Hillside Inn in Clinton. Their number is (501) 745-4700. I have blocked off
5 rooms for the ride but more can be blocked if needed. Rate is around $77/night. Mention you are with the COG group when calling. All of their rooms are ground level so easy parking and access to your bike. So if you didn't get to make Jacks ride or Big Bend join us for this one. Looking forward to some good Arkansas twisties and visiting with friends.

We didn't. We did go north and take the ferry across Bull Shoals  lake and hit 125 in Missouri. It's the bomb dude, check it out!

That is exactly the ride we have planned for Saturday the 10th.

I checked and he shows as being registered so I'd have to say YES.

However, did you know the event was set for a max of 10? You are already at that number so nobody else can currently sign up for it.
Could be that's the way you wanted it, but I mention it just in case that wasn't what you had planned.

Ya awl have fun and ride safe now ya hear me?

We did not set a limit of 10.
Not sure where that number came from.

My understanding is this is not an official COG event, just a ride among friends, so any that want to come and ride with us, are welcome.

Ride safe, Ted

Well that's why I mentioned it, when you see it on the calendar it says "FULL". I didn't think you intended that, so now you or Jim can still fix it....or ask Fred or Craig to do it for you.

I've done the Bull Shoals Ferry many times and yes, 125 is the **** for sure.

OK, it's fixed now. It's no longer "FULL" and has room for 10 more.

...... and yes, 125 is the **** for sure.


That road looks awful, I wouldn't ride it if I were you guys.
