Who is coming to the COG National meet (June 2012)?
« on: November 28, 2011, 07:18:44 pm »
I am planning to attend my first COG event since it will be in my "backyard" and was wondering who else is gonna make the trip.  I haven't decided whether I will camp or try to split a room but if there is someone who would like to split a room just let me know.  I don't snore all that loud and my feet are only mildly offensive.   ;)  Tons of great roads down there, I will probably have been down and ridden in Arkansas twice by the time June rolls around.   ;D
Keeping the economy going, one tank of fuel and two tires at a time.

Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

I wish it wasn't so far away for me, I'd love to go but would have to put 2 to 3 days on either end of it for travel which makes it unlikely for me to be there...  :(

Eureka Springs is a great area and a short ride for me, it would be interesting to see so many Concours in one place.

Vacation time has already been selected and camping reservations are made! The wife and I will definately be there. 2011 was our first National (Mt. Snow is in our "backyard") and it convinced us not to miss another if we could help it. We will be trailering the bikes to get there behind the new-to-us motorhome. This is a setup we hope to use to see much of this great country of ours!

We might try to make it this year. My mo-in-law lives right up the road a bit from Eureka Springs and that would be a good time to visit her. My wife can drive the truck and pull the 5th wheel while I ride the bike. As if...

My wife wants to learn to drive the "C", but most likely just for long over-the-road trips pulling the bike trailer. She never drove the pickup and TT (okay, she moved it across a parking lot once), but is interested in learning to be able to give me a break driving. Less down time = arriving at destination and getting on the bikes sooner!

I always do the driving when we pull the 5th wheel but my wife is always saying that I should teach/let her (she's driven the truck LOTS but not pullling) do some driving so that I can have a break. I said fine, how about you drive while I ride?

She wants nothing to do with that. Heck, I'm not bad at backing a trailer and I'm a bit concerned about backing a 12' trailer with a 30' motorhome! :-\

Short ride for me too.  Plan on being there "most" of the time during that week.

Longer ride for us...but...it looks like the missus and I are tentatively "IN"!   :chugbeer:

It should be a good break-in run for my PR3/Shinko combination on the C10...

I'd have to do the backing for sure, I don't have any problems with that. As long as my wife isn't 'helping' me.    :o

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
