Here is a tip. Bring your own coffee for the mornings. The River Inn supplies a coffee pot (and a full kitchen) but no coffee. You might also want to bring some snacks for Friday and Saturday night. We typically will sit out by the river after the days ride and share chips and dips and snacks and beverages.

He made it last year, so I want him to make it again this year to see if I can get him to spend more money than he did last year.    :nananana:

Oh no, I can't do that. I might break it, and you will need something to ride to the National!

I just remembered to arrange my room.
Yes, i know I are a dummy..

Fred, to assure you know number for the caterer, I'll go to COG site and check in. But,,fyi; I'm coming with wife...

To all that haven't arranged their rooms yet,,,,,,,
The River Inn told me that "all the rooms Fred had alloted" (15) are booked,
      but they are still putting COGgers in other rooms that are available.
            Have only a few remaining...

Book your room now, or be disappointed!!!    ;)


 Hint, hint,,, (Rev)   :-[

Ride safe, Ted

Important Update::::

  errrrr, Rev Sed,, Ted's right  :rotflmao:
Later Rev sed:  (I never said that. If you say I said that, I'll deny it.)

Based on work schedule, I am considering leaving Thursday afternoon and riding part way and grabbing some BBQ at Coopers in Llano and staying somewhere in the area - might even consider camping. If that doesn't work, I'll probably head out of Fort Worth after traffic dies down on Friday morning. If anyone up this way wants a riding partner, please let me know and we can coordinate. Don't really have a strong preference on leaving either day, so whatever works.

I also just bought a new GoPro Hero 3, and will bringing it along for the weekend. So if you want to star in my first motorcycle action video, now is your chance!

Well as much as I hate to say this, This will be the first year in a while that I am going to miss the Wildflower ride. I am working on adding a bedroom and bathroom onto the house due to our son and his family moving back to Texas from Australia. I am up to my a** in this construction project and there is no way I will or can have it completed by then. Sure hate to miss those roads and of course the working on somebodies bike in the parking lot thing. Sorry Ted you will have to take over the full parking lot mechanic duties. Looks like the national will be my first ride of 2014. Ted I know you will miss me not being at Wildflower but it will be Ok.
