May try to make it. Looks like about a 8-hour ride and I have a new GF with an urge to travel.

Anybody got a specific date or do I have to slog my weary way over to COG to find out?

It's unfortunate I do not have enough vacation time to support attending this event. I was looking at the rally info web pages over at the COG web site www.cog-online.org and the rally location looks awesome with great riding in all directions. The rally team is pulling together an awesome event.  Anyone who attends will probably have an awesome time.

JetJock: Official dates are Mon June 11 to Friday June 15.
              I highly suggest arriving before the official start day on Sat or Sunday (June 9 or 10) to
              meet folks/do some extra riding/swap lies etc.....

Ride safe, Ted

Distant hope. Wife likes riding but not straight through.  We might stop in western IL to visit her sister and stay overnight.

But the rub is that Wife teaches school until Friday, June 8th.  And missing last day of school is lame.  So...

Creative thinking says, 'Ride down alone, she flies down.'  Yeah, right.

Love to join everyone that we met in Tomah but missed in VT.

Sounds like a good idea to me!!
One year my Wife,,,,  said for me to go without her and not worry about her,,,, as she couldn't go.

So,,, I suprised her... "I went"!!!!!   ::)

She didn't talk to me for Reallllllyyy a long time......

Ride safe, Ted

Ouch! Well, she shouldn't have told you that it was ok to go by yourself right? Although we all know that her tellling you that it was ok for you to go by yourself was really code for, 'if you know what's good for you, you had better NOT go'.

Close but I think the real code for the ole' 'Go if you want to' is that you had better not WANT to go without me. Sort of like that ad about the guy selling the motorcycle because he misunderstood the phrase 'Do whatever you XXXX want', which does NOT mean to do whatever you want.

No. :rotflmao:

I thought so.

Joane and I are planning on being there. It looks like we will be bringing the motorhome and trailer. So Brian if your lovely bride wants to come but doesn't want to ride down with you she can certainly ride with us.

That is if you ever get around to telling her. ;D

Heh heh. Thats a nice offer, thanks! Since she doesn't much care to go riding tho, the days might be a tad boring for her.  Maybe it's just me she doesn't want to ride with. Perhaps she would pillion with you or Joane ;D
