Hmm, my last note seemed to have stopped this discussion.
I'll give it another try.

Lets start with questions.
* Who's planning to go? Me
* Who has registered? Not me yet
* Who has reserved room? Me
* Is Ted a genious?  8) As far as you know, yes.
* Please tell us something that you would like to see or do that has not been done at a previous National?
Copy and add questions...... Alot of evening get togethers

Ride safe, Ted

As oon as I heard that, I subscribed to Rider. (Day before yesterday) Unfortunately I don't have a way to see this issue.
Can someone offer a waythatthose of us that don't see Rider Mags can see the discussion?

Ride safe, Ted

Now back to the discussion,.

* Who's planning to go? TED
* Who has registered? NOT TED
* Who has reserved room? NOT TED   Update: Booked my room 1/8/12  :chugbeer: :thumbs: :thumbs:
* Please tell us something that you would like to see or do that has not been done at a previous National?  Group Rides. (Not allowed to do so per COG rules because of insurance, but maybe we could set up a meeting point for unofficial groups?)

Copy and add answers/questions......

One of the COG members in Houston (Jack C) asked me who is riding up from Houston as he doeesn't want to ride alone.
I know others plan to make the ride from Down South. (or somewhere along the route)
(Looks like it will be approx 650 miles from Houston)

I saw a discussion somewhere about a group coming in from the Northwest, but nothing from the South.
Is anybody interested in hooking up for the ride up?

Ride safe, Ted

Lets start with questions.
* Who's planning to go? Me!
* Who has registered?Me too!
* Who has reserved room?Me too, also!
* Is Ted a genious? Me reserve right to judge later! ;D


Notes: Have "technically" been to a COG national indirectly. Friend and I were at Deals Gap when it was held there, but had no idea except there were bunches of "my" bike there. Learned later there was a group of like minded Concours riders with a whole interwebs thing going!

Look forward to the trip from Flatistan and meeting folks.

There is a thread Who's Attending the Nationals this year in Eureka Springs,AR? started by Frontier in which he offers to lead rides at the National. 

Since I live in NW Arkansas I would welcome the opportunity to lead a ride through the most scenic areas and interesting roads we have to offer.

I think the Rally Committee will want to talk to him about helping out with ride planning.

The current word is,, all rooms are booked at the Main Rally Location. Sounds like we are going to have a really good turnout!

Luckily there are many other Motels near to Rally Central. (1 is a Motorcycle only Motel, and the prices look pretty good).

Ya'll book yer rooms!

Gonna be a blast!

Ride safe, Ted

Lets start with questions.
* Who's planning to go? 
I plan to attend.

* Who has registered?
I have.  Or at least my money was taken by COG 'accountants'.

* Who has reserved rooms?
I have one with a great view.

* Is Ted a genius?  8)
Only if he can explain E=Mc^2 without using his Ki-Pass...

* Please tell us something that you would like to see or do that has not been done at a previous National?

Plastic repair tips and tricks.

Tips and Repairs made EZ: Plastic weld repairs (Cigarette Lighter), glue, bailin' wire, bubble gum, and if all else fails,,,,, Duct tape.

QUESTION: There is some discussion about having "small" led Rides for New Attendies. (New Attendies = Riders at their first National)
If this is possible, who would be interested in going with a SMALL group?
                             who would be interested in leading a SMALL group?
