I would say it depends on the Journey.

Staying at Breaux Bridge or Lafayette overnight is a great experience for LA food, I 10 through Houston and then San Antonio to Kerrville is not bad.

Coming through I20 to DFW, you  do not want to take I35 to San Antonio. I have a great route from DFW on back roads, it is about 5 hours from DFW to the YO. We will have the routes in *.GPX and other formats soon.

There are many roads in the Hill Country besides the Three Sisters that are technical and challenging.

Let me know what you want to experience on the Journey!

June average for Kerrville is 89 degrees F for the high.

There's ridging in the latter part of the week this week so the temps are above normal.

Maybe the glass is half full? ;D

But I sure do like watching folks discuss how bad last years/this years/next yeas location is...  >:D

I've been to 3 in a row - all AWESOME!

Missed this year - I'm sure it was great.

Won't make next year - I'm sure it will be great, too  :great:

I just can't get my helmet on if temps are above 85* while humidity is above 60%:-/ Luckily, others are better riders than me in this regard.

1500 miles from me, but I really don't care... this is on my list,  even momma was excited, and also commented on the heat... but hey, ride nekid...
The venue also looks cool, but I will note, it is a very hotel/motel rich environment, something for every level of affordability, and within walking distance of each other....

And mosst of all... a day ride to watch "the BATS".... :great: :great:

Oh, and we can all go hang out at Rev's house.... :great: :great: :rotflmao: >:D :))

This was originally a COG listserv post circa early 2000’s written by Bob Chappell, COG 1283. I feel there is value to toss this out there every so often. The rally list has been updated to reflect all to the present. National rally history can also be found the club web site. FWIW - Bob's post was the inspiration for my sig tag line.

Quote from: Bob Chappell
Note: The following is not intended to rekindle any hot debates over when/where COG National Rallies should be held, but is presented for informational purposes only. With all the banter about the time-of-year and location of COG Nationals, I thought the following might be of interest. Listed are the National Rallies held (& to be held) from 1990 through present.

Once upon a time, COG tried to appease everyone by holding a “National Rally Series” every year, covering the Eastern, Central and Western parts of the country, and spanning the calendar from Spring until Autumn. If memory serves, this got to be an extremely heavy burden to bear on an annual basis, so Nationals were cut back to one a year – with a notable exception in 2000. Why a "rolling rally" that year? Because the enthusiasm and volunteerism where present to support the concept. Note the number of National Rallies since 1990. How many other motorcycle organizations like COG can make that claim?

Since COG Nationals have been promoted as family events, it's only logical that they be held during the summer months. As far as location... Well, if we don't raise our hands and shout, “ME, ME!”, we shouldn't expect to see a National in our neck of the woods, nor complain when it's not.

And that's all I have to say about that. For now  :-)

1990: Colorado Springs, CO, September.
1991: Cody, WY. July
1992: Eastern National, Front Royal, VA to Asheville, NC, early May.
         Western National, Banff, AB, Canada, late June.
1993: Eastern National, North Carolina, May 17-21.
          Western National, Colorado, August 9-13.
          Central National, Wisconsin, October 1-3.
1994: Central National, Eureka Springs, Arkansas, May 2-6.
          Western National, Sonora, California, August 8-12.
1995: Eastern "'94 in '95", Tennessee, May 23-27.
          Western National, Oregon, July 24-28.
          Central National, Ohio, September 6-10.
1996: “Ride the Rockies”, Avon, Colorado, August 5-9.
1997: “COG-motion Along the Ocean”, NB-PEI-NS, Canada, May 31-June 4.
1998: “Texas Hill Country Tour”, Fredericksburg, Texas, June 14-19.
1999: “National 99”, Merrimac, Wisconsin, July 26-30.
2000: “Continental Drift” Part 1, Brian Head, Utah, July 8-10.
           “Continental Drift” Part 2, Mountain Home, Arkansas, July 13-16.
           “Continental Drift” Part 3, Natural Bridge, Virginia, July 19-22.
2001: “The Odyssey”, Klamath Falls, Oregon, July 2-6.
2002: “Colorado, Canyons & the Concours”, Montrose, Colorado, July 8-12.
2003: “Mountain Do”, Asheville, North Carolina, June 16-20.
2004: “Flood City National”, Johnstown, Pennsylvania, July 13-17.
2005: “Cascade Connection”, Centralia, WA, August 1-5.
2006: “High Plains Drifter”, Hill City, SD, June 26 – July 1.
2007: “COG in Canaan”, Canaan Valley, WV August 7-12.
2008: “COG @ 10,000”, Frisco, CO, June 2-6.
2009: ”Shiftin’ n Grinnin’ National”, Fontana Dam NC, June 8-11
2010: “Follow the Alphabet Roads”, Tomah, WI, July 12-16
2011: “Green Mountain National”, Mt Snow, West Dover, VT, August 8-12
2012: “No Bad Roads Rally”, Eureka Springs, AR, June 11-15
2013: “Rock Mountain Rendezvous” , Idaho Falls, ID, August 26-30
2014:  COG Silverdamit Anniversary, Johnson City, TN, June 16-20
2015:  “Concours in the Corners”, Cortez, CO, June 15-19
2016:  “Backyard Rally”, Helen GA, June 20-24
2017:  “Show Me MO Twisties”, Lake Ozark, Missouri, June 12-16
2018: “Three Sister Rally”, Kerrville Texas, June 11-14

Some stats gleaned from the rally info:

Oh, and we can all go hang out at Rev's house.... :great: :great: :rotflmao: >:D :))

OH RATZ!!!!

I'm finally home and settled for a minute and guess what????  Rev don't live close to there no more.  :rotflmao: :rotflmao:


But my Wingman, Hub, still lives there.   ;) 


And he has a bigger shop than I do.   >:D


And he was hopin' the National would be 2000 miles away since he plans to go next year. (I called and said, "Hey, are you going to make the National next year with me?"  He said, "Dang skippy I is!"  THen I told him it was a couple miles from his porch.    :D

I've enjoyed almost everywhere I've ever ridden, but Texas Hill Country still rocks my world.  I'd seriously consider returning there to retire... well, if I ever get a job again so I CAN retire someday.   ::)

I'm still a long way from being able to get much of anything from SS.  Only 60 right now.  By the time I'm 66 or 68, they will have moved it to 75. LOL

I highly suggest that folks make the Nimitz Museum a destination while at next years rally.

Incentive to come;
Our family is going to do a Plaque Presentation on July 8. {to honor our 4 Uncles that served in the Pacific during WW-II}.
Anyone that finds and takes a picture of that plaque while at next years National,,, gets a beer.

If e'nuff succeed, I'll set up a Keg.
     Hope ya'll like "Lone Star"...

Ride safe, Ted

PS: I just registered at the YO Ranch Motel for the National...
            Mebbe I was first???

When I became and AD I found out quick I should not put a post up here till I read it like the other guy reads it first.  I think all of us could live by that.  If you don't want it said to you or about you then just hit backspace till you don't.
