I forgot the Christian riders paying it forward.  It's been too long.

We had a very nice lineup of Concours motorcycles and at least 14 COGers on hand for the July 2nd Ephrata Bikers Breakfast. We introduced yet another 2 C-14 owners to the virtues of COG.  Mike Brent led 8 of us on a 125 mile ride ending up near Hamburg for an awesome lunch at Kauffman's BBQ. The ride was not entirely uneventful. Traveling north on RT 897 we encountered three vintage motorcycles headed south in the other lane. When the third rider gave his downward salute, (we think) he hit a series of dips in the road and got an immediate uncontrollable tank slapper and went down instantly.  The last five rider's in our group were shocked to see the rider and bike skidding at least 250 feet.  Fortunately the rider and bike stayed in their lane with the bike eventually ending up in a corn field. The rider was saying he was ok, but without gloves and riding pants he was pretty chewed up.  I think everyone helped out in some way, everything from lifting the bike out of the field, to helping the rider and bike clean up, to directing traffic. The advice from Greg after we helped him get bike running?  Thanks for the show, but we don't ever need to see that one again!

Come join the 13-14 COG members that showed up the last two times for the upcoming August 6th event.  :motonoises:  The details are in reply #7 of this thread.  We will do some type of ride starting around 10:45 AM, and it’s all negotiable as to where we end up.   :??:   

Correction for the Date:  August 6th!

That's ok, my brother is coming with his Harley.  I'll drape the COG banner across all four bikes.   >:(

For the August 6th gathering at the Ephrata Bikers Breakfast, we were treated to 68-70 degrees and sunny in the middle of August. Everyone noticed the weather, and the top and both bottom lots were completely filled and bikes were starting to spill onto the grass. There were so many motorcycles, that we got parked in quickly and lost our lineup of Concours.  So no telling how many COG members were there!  We met Jeff and Kathy from Virginia, and Wayne from New Jersey (a different Wayne from NJ) who travelled in for the first time.  Seven of us went for a spirited ride around Texter Mountain and found a road that quickly ended at a dead end. We thought we ran out of roads, as in we finally found them all!    :motonoises:  We got back on track and finished up the ride in Columbia PA after a stop at Speedwell Forge.

The number of bikes there was amazing.  Jack and I never saw a Kawasaki 1200 ZRX before.  We stood and marveled at it.  Then we saw two more.  Go figure   :-[  I think every make model and variation possible was in that lot.

Can we get a show of throttle hands for the upcoming October 1st Ephrata Bikers Breakfast?   :motonoises: The weather looks to be fantastic. I'm thinking of another run up to Kauffman's BBQ.   :)

Also, keep the next two October COG events in mind.  :great:

The numbers were down a bit today, we had seven Coggers today.  The weather was great, although some would argue it was a bit chilly for the ride over at 42 degrees.  The full sun warmed things up to tee-shirt weather.  Thanks to everyone who showed up for the Ephrata Events this year.  :great:
