Thanks to Scott (Staylo), we now have two additional rides for Ephrata below, with an option to add two more if we get bored.  It's interesting that the Ducati riders pick similar roads as the sport touring guys.  These roads are great choices, and they will be mucho fun to ride.  :great:

Good roads are good roads, whatever you ride.  Glad to be able to pass them along. Hopefully I'll be able to make an Ephrata Sunday sometime soon.

Officially this is the plan.....

Meet for Breakfast and see thousands of motorcycles. 

The Cloister Post 429 of the American Legion in Ephrata hosts a motorcycle show on the first Sunday of each month, April through November.
Come anytime you like, but COG will schedule our event from 9:00 AM to 10:30-11:00 AM. 

We park towards the back top of the lot by the loading dock.  Join other motorcyclists for great conversation, and a breakfast if you like. See thousands of motorcycles on display from concept, to classic, to modern Sport Touring.   

After the event, there will be at least three rides to choose from that will put you on some great roads as you head to towards your home.  The details for the ride and lunch can also be a group decision that day.

The weather is looking like sunny with a high of 62.  Great for Early April.  :great:

Note that the that the name of this thread changed to "Ephrata Bikers Breakfast is now a regular COG event"  It's no longer an idea, but a reality.

The weather will indeed be sunny. Speaking of dirty, those two big rain storms this week washed away any vestiges of salt left on the roads. Hope to see a good turnout. I'm shooting to be there by 9:00 am.  If anyone is interested in a ride afterwards, try to be there by 10:30.

I counted 11 COG folks, and Greg handed out cards and ride events to at least 4 C-14 and C-10 rider's we came across.  Four of the Coggers were not riding Kawasaki, but it was great to see Fish on his really nice C-10 while leaving the Wing at home.  Six of us started on the Hanover northern loop ride, and think we found the good twisties for sure.

Have to share this one. I was cracking up because we were turning onto and then running a good distance on "Cocalico Road". The female voice giving me turn by turn navigation the Sena S-20 was actually saying "C0ck-a-lick-a Road".  That there was funny.   :nananana: :-\  :rotflmao:

It was nice see the Gang again. Good turnout for April. Thanks for leading the ride Steve it was awesome!

It was funny watching a rider "not to be named' run out of gas, with a down hill gas station in sight. :nananana:

Just so you know, that 35 miles with no gas stations in sight, and the down hill gas station at the last possible moment was all planned.  The PA-MD ADD has every detail of every event planned to the nth degree.   :nananana:

Had a great time Sunday, Steve. Thanks!  Beautiful weather and some really nice roads.

As to the rider whose name we shall not speak...  Was he out out, or just didn't switch over to reserve out?  'Cause if that was out out, that was some kind of impressive route management!

It's a good thing that the [PA-MD] region has a choice of rides and events this Sunday May 7th.  I plan to be in Ephrata and go for some type of ride before heading back home for a family event.

Here is the other ride option put together by Russell and Greg.  Do one or the other, since both is not an option.   :motonoises:

I'm heading down to my daughter's house this month. We are heading to the Rock Hall Bike Fest. If anyone is in the area look for the only Connie in the masses that will be me.

Ride safe everyone.

It was 53 degrees and windy with spotty showers.  Jack was the only one that showed up, so we had went for a 60 mile righteous ride and had a great lunch.  Apologies (if you were looking for us) to the blue C-14 we saw heading in as we were riding out of event.  Better weather next time.   :motonoises:

I braved the clouds/showers and stopped by ~10am.  No connies around so I ended up visiting a friend who has an antique stand up the road in Adamstown.  Very small turnout, maybe 50 bikes by then?  I look forward to a nice weekend when it will be several thousand.
