2017 Wildflower Regional Rally

COG 2017 Wildflower SC Regional Rally

March 31 - April 2 , 2017




Meet at the River Inn Resort in Hunt, Tx. March 31-April 2 for a few days of riding central Texas twisty roads, comparing farkles, ogling wild flowers and putting off doing your taxes a little longer.

There will be an included dinner and a prize drawing on Saturday night.



20 River Inn rooms are blocked at a slightly discounted rate of $85 for studio or one bedroom and $125 for two bedroom.  Ask for COG rates when booking.  You must call to get these rates as they are not available online. The rooms are not cheap but the venue is very nice.  Consider sharing rooms with those who have the frugal bug. These are privately owned rooms so they are not identical although all include a sofa bed and basic kitchen utensils. Our rooms are located "below the dam" so if you prefer a room off by yourself or if you tend to retire very early then you may wish to request a room "above the dam" when you call. Generally there is only very subdued (if any) conversation in the courtyard after 10PM.

Reserve early as not all rooms are on the first floor. Rooms will be held for us until February 28th, after that date the rooms will be released to the general public.  Room rates are also available on March 30th for those wishing to arrive on Thursday.

Cancellations must be made by February 28th to get first night deposit refund.

Bleh, I'll be using a walker still (a little) when this happens. I need to be sure to be able to make the Big Bend one this year.

Looking forward to it.  This was my first ever COG event and had a blast last year, despite the rain.  Glad to see it has been moved up a couple of weeks, hopefully to avoid the rain and the flowers will still be in full bloom.  Great venue for sitting around swapping stories and enjoying the beverage of your choice.  Only downside is its only an hour from my house, so don't have the opportunity to ride in with anyone for it.

Great!!!!   We moved  from a strong El Nino to a mild La Nina pattern so I think the spring may be a little drier.

Nice rain over the Hill Country last Sunday night.  Wildflowers should be spectacular this year.  Spring has sprung, everything is budding out.  Feel for you guys dealing with the snow and cold.  We have to summerize our bikes down here in Texas, no riding from July-Sept.   

Looking forward to the rally.

I just hope we are past the last freeze.  It is still February and if we get one now no flowers, no peaches and a few other bad effects of perfect weather in the middle of winter.

Well looks like I will not be attending the Wildflower ride this year. I am trying to plan another Arkansas ride for the SC calendar.
Tentative details are in the new ride planning thread (check it out and give me your thoughts) . Hope you guys & gals have a good
time at the River Inn and I will see some of you at Cliffs in April.

Actually, that's why air conditioned motorcycle riding suits are made, so we can ride through the Texas blast furnace summer months and stay alive doing it! No, I don't have one, but Marty does.
