For the Dallas Fort Worth people;
I am very excited about this upcoming organized trip. It will be so cool see so many Concours  enthusiasts in one place in such a great area. If anybody is interested in riding down there together  I'm leaving from the DFW metroplex at 7 AM to have towards Alvarado, Tx. which is where hwy 67 and interstate 35W meet. I'm leaving the McDonald's location at 8 AM sharp. Feel free to join me if you would like. Other than that I look forward to meeting you all in Alpine.

Bob Church had to cancel (we'll miss you Bob) so there is a room available at the Maverick if you want to join up.

What day are you guys heading down?  I will be trailering three bikes (would MUCH rather be riding).  We will be leaving West Fort Worth at 4-5pm and heading down 20.

Probably going to make the trip.  However I sold my 2011 C14 and purchased a 2015 Versys 1000.  Lighter and more upright.  Are non-Connies welcome?   Leaving from Dallas area and staying at the Quality Inn

COG is open to all make and models of bikes.  Matter of fact you do not even need to own a bike.  I will be attending riding a Yamaha Super Tenere.

Welcome and please come! Versys will be great riding in the Davis Mountains and Big Bend area!

We're having a campfire in the evening at the Maverick so please join us.

Ride free,

Arghhhh, I hate missing this!

Talked to Steve Wright. He had to cancel due to a funeral.
He cancelled his room which should open up a room at the Maverick.

If anyone is in another Motel or haven't found a room, check the Maverick again.

Ride safe, Ted

I'll be leaving tomorrow afternoon for Kerrvlle.  Gotta put the bike back together, but just did a test run and no more smoke.  Still need to tweak the acceleration enrichment circuit, but i can do that anytime.  She does have an issue with the ECU resetting in first and second gears if you give it full throttle.  THe acceleration is so fast, the computer shuts off the fuel and the spark like it hit a rev limiter.  It comes back on in 2 seconds.  But the decel is like hitting a brick wall. Oh well, wide open in those gears is only tire smoke anyway.  1/2 to 5/8 throttle is the faster way through.  3rd has no resets, but is still pretty fierce at WOT even at only 6 psi boost.  I could probably leave tomorrow and get to Alpine yesterday.   :D

So happy she's running well again.  I was just sure I had busted some slugs in Georgia.  Now if I can just remember what a twisty looks like.   ;)

AirMonger here, last minute change of events has me GOING on Friday. Did not think I would be able to make it at all. I put the totalled Connie back on the road and it doesn't look too bad, especially thru the bottom of a beer glass 🍺. Gonna be a first for me.......trailering in........not because of the bike, because my knee can't take a three hundred mile pounding :truce:. Worse for the wear, but there all the same.  Looking forward to meeting some new faces.
