The dates for the 2018 Big Bend Ride the Twisties in Alpine, TX are the 18th through the 20th of October, 2018.

I will have reservations up this evening, rooms are blocked for $55 a night at a new venue. I will have that info up this evening.

Jim, why don't you just go ahead and move on up to Arkansas....they could use the genetic variation. :nananana: :beerchug:

Yes this would be an additional ride in October. I am looking at the 2nd weekend in October (12,13,14th). As mentioned this would be a ride for those not able to make the Big Bend ride as well as anyone else in the SC or surrounding areas that needed an excuse to ride their motorcycle.

I resemble that remark !!! Are you referencing my superior intellect? Actually I really would love to move to Arkansas when I retire.

Does anyone know why the Big Bend rally got moved from spring to fall?  I went the last time it was in March and really liked it, but cannot do rallies in the fall due to college football.

I am not sure but snow on my bike a few times might have been a motivator.  I remember something about that and not having to contend with spring break every year.

WX was too unpredictable in March. It gets pretty warm in late April after the Wildflower so the fall made sense.

Apparently Big Bend is not going to happen. {??}
Nothing has been scheduled. {??}

NOTE: If BB isn't scheduled at the last minute and you still want to do a final ride for the season;
   We are going to ride in Arkansas for a Final Fall Fling.
    We'll be in Clinton Arkansas Oct 18-20 if anyone wants to come ride with us?
    NOTE: We put it on the schedule for people to see, but it will probably not be an official COG event.
                   Just a ride with whomever wants to come ride with us..
                       Rooms {w/Discounts} are still available.
                       Camping nearby..

Big Bend will not be a listed COG ride. Pamela and I plan to go to Alpine the same weekend as the Final Fall Fling.

Not sure where we are going to stay either. Right now work and some house issues are taking all of my time.

I recommend the Hampton Inn on the West side of town. It has covered parking for a few bikes, fire pit and outdoor meeting area. Mike and I have stayed there twice, very nice. No train whistle was heard the whole time.

Ya know most of us do not need a event with food, prizes and fees.  We just need to know where and when.

that's funny.

sorry about that. I road the hwy 191, devil's cut ride this last weekend.

I was initially checking to see if anyone else is still going and probably did not realize that I was still in the wrong place.

Btw. my plans are still to go down to Big Bend, ordering my new set of tires and making hotel reservation this week.
If anyone wants to go, let me know
