Title: COGgers going to the National Rally July 2019
Post by: COGnosticator on January 28, 2019, 01:08:56 pm
I plan on going to this years National, my neck should be good by then.  My plan is to leave on Saturday and arrive in Williamsport on Sunday.  I am not sure of my route.

Wondering who from the southeast is going, and what your schedule is.  Jean isn't going this year so I will be riding by myself but would be nice to ride with one or two others.

Also looking for someone who wants to share a room from Sunday through Thursday nights.  I will head home on Friday.

We're going. My wife is from the central PA area, so we're doing a slightly extended family visit, too. Still deciding if we're riding or trailering a bike. We've got reservations at the Genetti, so no camping this time.

If I wind up going by myself, I will trailer my bike also.  Damn I am getting old   ;D

Two toring bikes and your thinking about trailering? It’s not like you have a Moto Guzzi. 😎

Well I have had the Griso for 13 months, sooooo, I am trying to work a deal to trade it for a 2014 Norge. If so I will definitely ride to the National.  ST model with 6 gallon gas tank versus 4.5 gallon, and at 35 mpg that is a big difference   :great:   :nananana:

 Looks like the header pipes double as tipover bars. You get the brown one, you might need get some stripes or something.

It is the brown one, but looks black in the picture he gave me.  We are pretty close to a deal  :)  and he is in Orlando so a trip with my trailer may be in my sights this weekend   :great:

Orlando? Maybe I should check it out for me.  :rotflmao:

Jerry, I'd offer a place to flop but we are leaving this weekend for AZ and SoCal. Gotta put some more miles on the Roadtrek and the Versys.

Damn, didn't mean to run you out of town   :D

Thanks for the offer Steve, but if I go it will be a down and back.  I rode my C14 to Orlando a few years ago and traded it for the Speed Triple then rode home, not a bad day of riding.

I am almost sure I am going to pass, although basically we would trade bikes even  :-\ and I would get a bike with 1,300 miles on it, and $3,000 of farkels not installed, for only $2,000  Almost too good to pass up

What's not to like about that deal?  $3000 worth of extras for $2000.  Almost no miles?  Hop on it Jerry!  You know you want to! ;D

Back to the original topic.... ::)

Anyone gets into mechanical trouble coming up through the WV panhandle, give me a holler. Trailer, tools, something cold and an extra bed if needed.
Unless I'm moving south at that time, then y'all pretty well screwed. :D

Jorge and I are not going to make it this year.  So much is going on with our son, daughter in-law and granddaughter with their move to Africa, that we just can't make it. 

I have a room reserved under my name.  If someone wants it, please let me know ASAP that way I can see about transferring the reservation to your name.

LOL, we are a lot older now, so it wouldn't be too bad.  I am still planning on going and sharing a room would work for me, but it has to have two beds  LOL   I won't know until the end of May though, when I go back to the doctor about my neck.

I just spotted this post, Irene.
If the reservation is still available, I’d be interested. I was hoping to meet you and Jorge, since my bike now has the carbs and torque cams from his 2005. I think that makes you it’s birth parents.
Some other time, I hope.


Anyway, I’ll PM you too.

We're leaving Friday and heading up 220 for a good chunk of the trip. We plan on taking it easy and not pushing too much and gettting to Williamsport by Sunday.
