Thanks Al, that was a great weekend.  And yes, Fla. does have some good twisties!  Even more fun on Doug's ZX-14! :motonoises:  I'll get pictures up soon.  Great seeing old friends and making some new ones. :beerchug:

Hot damn what a good time that was. Perfect for me, perfect timing, (almost) perfect weather, perfect group. Thanks Al for another bunch of memory data bits to recall for years to come.

I want to thank EVERYONE for the enjoyable time I had at Al's house this last weekend.  Being a none member at this time, has sold me on BECOMING a member in a few weeks time to come.   Al & Nancy were the hostess w/the mostest in hospitality and entertainment  (the group they invited).   Was once told that "CONCOURS PEOPLE COME FROM AREA 51"  I think that I'm starting to agree w/this.  Glade I'm not alone anymore.     Want to thank the camera guy for the HIGH SPEED RIDE and taking & posting all the pictures.    Till next time,    All take care and HAPPY THANKSGIVING & don't eat to much bird.   Be looking for you in my mirror.        ALAN

Looks like everyone had a large time.  :beerchug:  Perhaps next year Cindy & I can make it.  :)  @ Alan - You won't find a better group of folks anywhere. COGgers ROCK! :great:  Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving! :)

As soon as we arrived Saturday evening and the beer and jokes started flowing, I thought, "I think these are my kinda people." And then we went on our short, but quick little ride to breakfast Sunday morning and I KNEW it! It's so refreshing and fun to know that *I'll* be the slow-poke in this group.  ;D

Al and Nancy:  :You_Rock_Emoticon: Thank you so very much for all your hospitality. I am afraid you may have spoiled us for future COG events. You don't know how much that bed was appreciated after a day of riding and being chased by zombies. Let alone the awesome food and drinks.

Everyone else: Thank you for being so welcoming. We had a  blast and really can't wait to hang out with you all again and especially RIDE! Though I am afraid Dave's wallet may be whimpering in the corner when it sees the Christmas list of farkles I want, thanks to you all.   :sign0151:

OMG! What a great time we all had.  What a blast it was swapping bikes and watching Doug on my KLR do laps around the VFW lot.
Thanks to Reed for letting me flog his C14 all day. I love that bike and by the time the weekend was over I had  bought one.
  Good friends, great food, all the liquor you want and great riding in between. :beerchug: It JUST DOES NOT get any better than this!!

Al and Nancy, thanks for everything.

This little get together did nothing to dispel the reputation of SECOG, a good thing.  :motonoises: :motonoises: :motonoises: :motonoises:  :beerchug: :beerchug: :beerchug: :beerchug:

It looks like a great time and my kind of get together.
It's a bummer that work got in the way this year but if there is a next year I'll make sure I'm there.

Some of the statistics that the SECOG riders like to know; we ate 36 ribs and 24 chicken 1/4's, drank up one keg of Killians Red and three + cases of beer, assorted bottles of liquor were in the trash. We had 25 to the BBQ, and stayed up past midnight on Sat. & Sun burning a lot of wood.
House was full of air mattress sleepers, had one in the RV and a couple "slept" in my boat. Took until Monday pm to get yard back to normal and put everything away. Alan will be joining COG on the strength of all the good people he met, and new friends made. This was the first time I did all the smoking & grilling, and I think that went pretty well.
Thanks to everyone who helped pitch in for anything that needed to be done. It was a labor of love for me, with a pay off of seeing all of my riding friends.
We'll do it again next year.....................            Al

And my car is covered in ice.  :73:  Looks like a good time.  I was expecting to see at least one ADV sticker with all the salutes being given.  ;)

Hi and thanks to everyone, I had an awesome time meeting all the great people at this event. I haven't relaxed and laughed this much in a long time. Al and Nancy put on a great spread and made everyone feel like old friends. The riding was great! This was the first time I've experienced a "real" curvy road. I live on the east coast of Florida and a curvy road is rare over here. The roads that Al had planned for us to ride were a real thrill, especially trying to follow this group. You can count me in for next year.
