Title: 2017 Big Bend-Davis Mountains Ride the Twisties 19-21 October, 2017
Post by: kv5e on July 04, 2017, 06:21:00 pm
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 (http://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/ (http://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.

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:

What was room rate that was negotiated?

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.

Steve Rogers

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.

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.

Sounds good to me. I'll ride anywhere or way just give me a heading.
So, we DFW folks, would like to meet up at (Honda) Kawasaki 3101 W. Loop 820 South, Fort Worth Tx., 76116, gased up, well fed and Bathroomed out between 7:30am and 8:00am October - 19th for a smooth stress free ride to Alpine. Everyone welcome. This is a "no drop" ride to Alpine. Need help, we gotcha.

Hi Kuzin'.
Didn't know you would be there. {you being there, does spike my interest}

Biggest problem is we'll be on a Model T Rally for a week before the Big Bend gathering.
Not sure I'll be able to return Monday, unload and maybe do repairs on the car, rest, and leave again on Wed or Thursday.

Plus, I need to go to the Deer Lease and get things ready for the first hunt, "and" Jim wants me to go to Arkansas
to help him break in his new bike.

Decisions, decisions,,,,,,,   :-[

I just happen to have some Timing Chain cleaner in the garage.
I keep it in a dark/cool room so it won't s'plode.

Weather so far looks great, I'll put up forecast early next week for the area.

If you are riding down from NM. keep an eye on winds in the GNP and pass on the way down.

Welcome Sfsokc, looking forward to seeing y’all.
@ RevRyder C14 would surely be more comfy and besides my friend with the trailer isn’t coming this time. Lol
I'm not all that sure the C-10 is more comfy. When I picked it up in Arkansas, I made it about 57 miles on the stock seat before my backside was screaming for relief and had to stop to purchase some beads.  I then rode the rest of the way to deep south Texas.  But I'll know more by tomorrow night since I'll be riding it to Alpine.  Wound up all over today but didn't get the inspection so I could get new tags for the Turbo so it's a homebody I guess.  Tsk tsk!  Oh well.  As long as my backside can stand the 14 (I know I can do long days on my C-10 beaded seat) I'll be OK. 

May only go to Comstock tomorrow.  Not sure yet.  Don't have a reservation for tomorrow yet.  Might be sleepin' in a ditch and Skyping the BoD meeting from a McDonalds.  LOL

What was weather like?

Things didn't line up so that I could be there with you. {Wish it had}
Had to go North for family business so I arranged a ride with Cliff/Jim in Arkansas.
Our weather was occasionally a bit wet, but we enjoyed the ride..

What did you have in mind?    I did trailer down there since my rear PR4 was shot and we needed an emergency trailer since Ted wasn't there. The first time ever to a SC event.

I think what he's getting at is that there are no pics attached.

Fixed Now.........I could see them, but the access was not changed to "all view".

Something missing was ambiguous, can't see pics or forbidden access makes more sense.
