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:
Wasn't warm either in MD , about 20 + I'm guessing showed up for breakfast & ride starting in Frederick.  Had a blast as always,  Pete took his sport touring wing , so I took mine, I felt bad as I saw a tear coming from the left side of the headlight on the C10 as I left.

Missed this one. The bike was in the shop for fork seals on the left side. Blew out a couple of weekends back. The good news is that it was covered under warranty. Chuck, the service advisor at the shop, has never seen a bike with 9 years of warranty.  :great:

The Wing can handle 3 up, or time to add a side car.  :motonoises:  Assuming the parents will let them.....  I saw a pillion and a side car last week for the first time. Interesting way to travel.

Great.  I'll leave the Air Hawk on my bike so that you can compare the inflation.  I'm really happy with mine, now that I left most of the air out. I'm thinking about a ride around Marsh Lake and stop for lunch.  There are always other options as well.

Some of us have "meatier" butts that come with their own padding.

Got the photos.  Thanks! For someone that wasn't coming, you sure seemed to be enjoying yourself on the ride.   :motonoises:  I believe your comment at the light was, wow, now that was fun!  Apologies to the tires if that 65 mile loop had too many twists in it.   :motonoises:

I counted at least 14 COG members, and we had a nice lineup of Connies and of course keeping with COG mentality at least four were not on their Connies.   We also met two new C-14 riders with a bunch of questions, and they have new issues of the Concourior to learn more about the club. We had 8 go out for the ride/lunch, including Mike, Jack, Dale, Greg, Gerard, Mark, and one of the new guys on a 2008 C-14.

Hi all,

Thanks again to Steve for leading this into a COG event. I would like to take on the the role of leading the ride in either July or August. Below is the link to a map called "1st sunday 100mi ride". It is at my site http://sharfester.com/post

The trip would leave at 1100 and take about 2 hours. Ending at Johnny and Hons BBQ joint, where at 2pm, a band will be playing (2 July). Time to get something to eat and stay to enjoy the show if you like.

I have been on most of these roads but I am planing to ride the north side of 422 a couple times to figure out the best roads, check for construction etc. If I update any of the roads, it will be reflected on the website map.

Michael

Hello everyone,
I updated my site with a 70 mile loop for those who may wish to take a more leisurly pace. That should still put us all at Johnny and Hons at about 2pm.

I also uploaded the KML and KMZ files to a share drive, for anyone who wants to download the map. I may update the map between now and the 2nd, so be sure to download the map the morning of the ride, just in case.

This is the first time I have published the files, so please, someone test them out and let me know if it gives you the turn by turn, or just a straight route.

Thank you.

Chief

In case you were not aware, you can check out or buy a photo of you riding your bike into the event.

Agreed.  It looks like there is going to be a strong COG turnout again for this coming July 2nd.  There will be a lot of motorcycles to check out, and don't forget the free coffee.  Some type of ride(s) will be put together leaving around 11:00 AM.   :motonoises:
