Title: Memorial Day Weekend, WV & S.E. Ohio
Post by: gsjay on January 13, 2018, 02:42:43 pm
Our gang from Johnstown always goes on a trip over the Memorial Day weekend...............
I want to invite my COG friends to join us.
No registration, no agenda, just ride all day and socialize all night!


We will be staying at two different locations this year as there were no rooms available at the Lafayette Saturday night.

We plan on staying Friday May 25th  & Saturday May 26th  at the Red Roof Inn , Parkersburg, WV
You can book your own room on the Red Roof site. Rates are very low………
We plan on taking a Taxi or Uber to downtown at least one evening, most likely Saturday.

We plan on riding Saturday and Sunday. Trying to get to as many of the Ohio Windy 9 as I can.

Sunday evening I have 20 rooms blocked at the Lafayette Hotel, in Marietta Ohio.
http://www.lafayettehotel.com/ (http://www.lafayettehotel.com/)
The block is held under motorcycle group. Rate is $83 plus tax.
You have to  call Hotel directly to get his rate.

Home Monday.
Please share with anyone you think that would like to join us.

My son lives in Athens and my wife is from the area so we are pretty aware of all the Windy 9.  Not sure about the weekend as I have another son graduating.

If I can make this I will

Johnstown? Did not know there was a group over there. Have been through there a hundred times going from Athens to Delaware. The only folks I know from there are Jason Carter and his parents. May be good to go and meet some of the great folks of COG

Lemme know a week in advance if you are going, I will try to see if $$ allows me to go, do a room split maybe?
Would be nice to see ya, and all my other COG pals from PA. I know a lot of cool roads down there, and it would be fun to ride some again, I don't like doing them solo, even tho I'm kinda a lone wolf when riding, its always nice to have a "spotter" for those. "Just in case" instances and places...
Also,
Just curious, have you seen or heard from WALSTIB (Chris C.) Over the last few years, he lived over near you, but kinda dissapeared about 3 years ago.. just curious.

I most likely know his face, his forum name rings a bell though too. Lots of folks in northern Ohio, just trying to get them to do things is tough.
