Title: (PICS THREAD) Mid Fla RTE, Celbrating The End Of Summer, 9/22/12
Post by: stevewfl on September 22, 2012, 07:05:47 pm
Hi,

If its OK I would like to share pics of the Southeast event today.  Kudo's to the organizers who did such an awesome job, SteveJ for making coffee this morning almost as good as Marge's, and everyone who showed up.  Teressa and I had a blast! 

Here are a few pics. I have them in hi-rez if anyone is interested.  I'd like to speak to the powers that be over the great COG magazine I've been getting about posting some South pics "just for the cause.

Sparky's served up some STELLAR breakfast morsels after our arrival

So SteveJ hits above 150K miles and installs an "HYDROCARBON" kit huh I need to ask him about this mod!?
(http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j180/stevewfl/LR%20700/COG_sparkys/SRW_7064_zps6094445d.jpg)

SteveJ also said a next goal is to hit 200K, so I kindly obliged to help his bike and its officially been blessed by the wings of a fast angel =)

A friend of mine Phil, he rides a somewhat "different" Kawasaki. This is his second COG outing. Hello, can one of the South recruiters bring him into the club???   =)

A BMW owner explained he had to waste his Saturday trailering his bike to the shop for repair.
(http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j180/stevewfl/LR%20700/COG_sparkys/SRW_7060_zps30d79fd2.jpg)

We all salute him, and wish him well with his bike!

(disclaimer the COG bird group pic wasn't for the BMW nor did anyone suggest it, this is not serious)

Hey you guys, get your own salute....that one's mine.
Good attendance and a great photo. All the NC riders at the rally I was at in Steelville, MO spoke of how cool the SE riders are and of their ability to party hardy. Gotta admit, we DO have the best of riders & COG members in the SE. You make all of this freakin' two finger typing worth it.   Al

After having a big breakfast (on a pizza pan) I thought it would be a great idea to go work it off so I rode the bike to the Jennings GP track  , took the saddle bags and windshield off  and took her for a good run..

Nice way to work off a pizza pan breakfast. I'm still amazed at the size of the ham steak.

We will be back there again, most likely a lunch run some time this fall/winter/spring.

Disclaimer: Sparky's bought my breakfast. How cool is that? I just heard from a little birdie that it was one of the attendee's that bought my breakfast. Sorry, and thanks. They wouldn't take my money and I ASSumed it was cuz they bought it. Again, sorry, and again, THANKS!!!

Ain't COG great? Or what?

Thanks Eddie. It was nice to see everyone at the RTE. 
  We need to plan our route  to Barberville.   I also  need to get  my 100K sticker for my bike.  The guy who is in charge of that seems to be slackin' a bit!   :)

Mike,
Looks like you had way too much fun after the RTE. BTW, you sure you're looking for the 100K sticker and not the 100mph one??   :motonoises:
