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.

Just do ya'll know, there's still a very outside chance I'll be showing up.
Haven't given up, but would have to leave Houston almost immediately after returning from another trip.

Ride safe, Ted

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,,,,,,,   :-[

 We all had a GREAT time at Jack's and you weren't there.......... :))

Enjoy the other hobbies, I do!  This is a voluntary participant event although Rev might need some of your *shine* to clean some timing chains up!!!!!!! :nananana:

I've been trying to talk Jim S. into going with me.
If'n ya'll could help me spur him into Big Bend, this would be an easier decision.. {Hint, hint}

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.

Ride safe, Ted

Dinner is confirmed for Saturday night at Judy's Bread and Breakfast at 7 PM.

Location is listed in the opening post.

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.

Coming over from San Antonio with the GF and arriving late on the 20th.  Been a COGer for years, but never done any activities or met anyone from the group.  First time to BB.  Looking forward to it!

Leaving tomorrow morning for this trip.  Probably will stay in Comstock tomorrow night.  Will conduct BoD meeting from there and then on to Alpine Thursday morning.  I have to return on Saturday since I'm working Sunday at Bay City.  I think I'll be on the C-14 unless I change my mind again. LOL

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

@ Redline; did you get better mileage going back with the “Eco” button?

for sure better but more difficult to tell how much. It seemed to me it could have been around 4 mpg...  I'll keep checking.  I guess I gonna read my kawasaki manual and see what other goodies I missed.  Great weekend !!! :)
