2019 National Rally Location

No. I don't know FOR SURE where it will be held. None the less, it's not too soon to start the speculation and wild rumors.  Let's recap:

2009 - Hosted by SECOG in NC
2010 - Hosted by NCCOG in WI
2011 - Hosted by NECOG in VT
2012 - Hosted by SCCOG in AR
2013 - Hosted by NWCOG in ID
2014 - Hosted by NECOG/SECOG in TN (this was the 25th Anniversary of COG)
2015 - Hosted by SWCOG in the Four Corners
2016 - Hosted by SECOG in GA
2017 - Hosted by NCCOG in MO
2018 - Hosted by SCCOG in TX

For those that haven't been keeping score:
Since 2009, SECOG has hosted/co-hosted 2.5 :great:  (2009, 2016 and half of 2014)
                  NECOG has hosted/co-hosted 1.5  :o (2011, and half of 2014)
                  NCCOG has hosted                 2  :motonoises:  (2010, 2017)
                  SCCOG has  hosted                2  :motonoises:  (2012, 2018)
                  NWCOG has hosted                1  ::)  (2013)
                  SWCOG has hosted                1 ::)  (2015)

We can likely eliminate SECOG, NCCOG, and SCCOG from consideration due to the fact that they've all hosted a national within the past 3 years. That leaves NECOG, NWCOG, SWCOG.

Of those 3, NECOG or NWCOG would seem to be the most likely contenders as neither has hosted a rally in the past 4 years.

NWCOG has a new(ish) AD while the NEAD has been in position since the invention of asphalt.  NECOG also has one of the larger memberships so there's more bodies to assist.

I'm saying it will be in WV (or it was COL Mustard in the Library with a candlestick). :rotflmao:

WV certainly would not disappoint in any respect in regards to riding, scenery, cager friendliness towards motorcyclists, or places to stay. My group of buddies goes down every fall for a 4-day trip. It’s our favorite trip of the year.

Let's make sure that the facts are correct if we're speculating.......  :nananana: :rotflmao: :D (there may be others, but 25 Anniversary was Johnston City,TN not NC)

WV was my very first COG rally, meeting lots of y'all and so many are still my good friends and riding buddies...it was OVER THE TOP seeing all the custom bikes at that WV ralley in Canaan! COGnistiscator still burns in my memory shredding those mountain roads with a baby-duck-trail of C-10's in his wake.
I remember how cool the locals were, and how laid-back law enforcement was, too.  :(

But I also remember rallies all over the place and the part that makes this important is that the WONDERFUL PEOPLE, the COOL BIKES and the RIDER CAMERADERIE was still there at every single COG event I've ever attended!

You've already done all the thinking Jim. You narrowed it down to NE or NW, I agree it will be one of the two judging by your calculations.

I'm good with either.  :) Have bike will travel.  :motonoises:
