my 2016 COG Nationals trip report
« on: July 07, 2016, 05:41:21 pm »
I had a great time in Helen, Georgia at the 2016 National rally.  Took me a while to sort through the memories and pictures to write down my experiences.

You are welcome to read through this at your leisure.

My trip report as a PDF file.


Thanks to David from Canada, David from St. Louis, Paul, Loretta, Steve S, Al, That Guy, Rally Master Kurt, Ranger Jim, and so many more wonderful people I met down there.

Very nice, you know to do an article like this AND to have pictures to go along with it means you have to keep stopping and take pictures, a real nuisance when you are trying to make time and of course having park the bike and get on and off the bike. 

Gee, how many pounds do I need to plan on gaining at a national rally?

Thanks

I gained 14 lbs. :-\ 

As of this morning I have lost back 9.5 of them.  :-X

Sure was easier and more pleasurable stacking them on.    :rotflmao:
