Was reading/posting on the other forum, stumbled onto the info about this one and decided to stay. Some of the abbreviations (OTP or was that OPT?) leave me blank but I will catch on. 68 years young, retired 3 times, bike riding since 1963 (late starter), love the rides I've had and always look forward to going on the next one.

Jim,   Welcome.  OTP (Over The Pond) meaning Europe in general.  There's a GTR (name for Concours in Europe) group that we have a rider exchange program with. Yearly we nominate and send one over and visa versa.  Check out some of the back issues of the Concourier magazine in the Library section.  There's a write-up about the guy from France that road through parts of the USA with stops at COGers homes and eventually to the National in WV last year. Patrick I think was his name - great guy.   Then recently we nominated one of ours to go to Europe.  Lucky guy!  Greg  COG # 7010/7010a (Tracey)  CDA 0120  Connie Droppers Anonymous Awards Dude (CDAAD)  99 Connie "Herrin Christabelle".  05 Ninja 250
