The 2017 Big Bend - Davis Mountains Ride the Twisties is on the Calendar for the 19th through the 21st of October, 2017.

This year the Rally will be hosted at The Maverick Inn:

www.themaverickinn.com    432-837-0628

1200 E. Holland Avenue

Alpine, TX 79830

COG rooms are only blocked out until the 18th of September, 2017. Please make your reservation as soon as feasible.

SC COG will have exclusive use of the Maverick Inn which will include unlimited access to the heated pool and fire pit "after hours" once we reserve all 20 rooms.

  The Maverick Inn has great amenities and people so this year we will have the "run" of the place with their great free breakfast, free WiFi, and easy walking distance to good restaurants.

This year we will have prizes and awards at the exclusive COG Dinner to be held at 7PM on Saturday the 21st, at :

www.judysbreadandbreakfast.com/   and dinner is included as part of the registration fee for Saturday night. :celebrate:

The Big Bend and Davis Mountains regions have arguably some of the best roads and scenery for riding  :motonoises: anywhere in the SC region along with the unique geology of the Eastern most expanse of the Basins and Ranges region in the United States.



A guide and maps to the area are available to all riders at the URL below:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/iworxlm9rg89e1g/n1O_PzO70H

Is there a group number for discounts on the rooms. I'm already registered, however I don't see where we have a group ID.

Please say you are with COG. The Maverick includes a free hot breakfast. This is the peak season for Big Bend so the prices are a little higher, but the weather is gorgeous.

The Maverick also has a fire pit.  :campfire:

Second year to attend. Last year was spur of the moment last minute decision. This year I'm planning ahead. Personally, will be in Fort Davis for a few days before the COG event.

Honesty is still the best policy. I just plain told the boss "I'm sorry, I've gotta go. It's good for the soul." Can't wait to see everyone!

Room rates reverted back to regular pricing on the 8th. The discount was only about 5%, but there is breakfast and a fire pit at this location.

This is "peak" time for tourism with the chili cook off and the great weather.

There's other options for rooms nearby:

Asking this for a friend.  He will be riding down to the Texas hill country from Mountain Home, AR.  He will be there the 2nd full week in October.  What would be the best route for him to take.  I will be on a NE cruise that week, but plan on making the Natl next year.  I also live in Mountain Home, AR.

OK, this is a detailed mostly off major highway route:

From Mountain Home, AR 201 to AR 341 south
from AR 341 take AR 14 east
AR 14 to AR 9 south through Mountain View
Continue on AR 9 to Clinton and take US 65 south
From US 65 south take AR 9 south through Morillton and pass over the Arkansas River
In Perry county take AR 10 west from AR 9 toward Ola
Continue on AR 10 until you reach the sawmill in Ola and take AR 28 south
Continue on AR 28 south going through Bluffton, Gravely, and endless chicken houses until US 71
Turn left on US 71 going south towards Mena (gas stop at Shell in Boles)

Continue south on US 71 and turn right at US 270 at the railroad tracks
Follow US 270 to US 259 and go south (you can ride part of the Talimena is you take AR 272 up to the Lodge)
US 259 south to Idabel, OK and take the US 70 bypass to OK 37 south to the Texas state line.
After crossing the Red River, turn right in Texas FM 195 and continue until Paris, TX



Let me know if this is type of route he is looking for, where the final destination is, and I will post more.

I will show him your directions.  I would assume that his destination would be the Kerrville TX area.

OK from Paris I can prescribe a nice route avoiding most of DFW with nice twisties and views.

Just registered.

According to their website, Maverick Inn still has rooms for $120 night - AAA rate.

May need a roomie to share that for 3 nights.

Also the Highland Inn next door for half that - need to confirm availability.

Trying to entice a couple of C-14 riding non-Coggers to come out.

Questions for the DFW group - any plans for Thursday ride out?

Thanks

Just a suggestion; we could meet at Kawasaki West on the west side of the metroplex at 8:00am and just do a high speed burn (sounds cooler) across I20.

Prefer to do a high speed burn down 377 / 67. Timing OK if you want to meet up on 820.

Will be leaving FloMo around 7.
