There mostly for the camaraderie, it was (and always is) great to hang out with
COG 'folk'.  Sue and I had a wonderful time.  Sad not to have my Connie with me,
but I still shredded some serious rubber in the Fiesta ST tearing up the Cherahola
Skyway and the Tail of the Dragon on Saturday.   >:D

Four new tires on order...  ::)

Kurt... good news 'bout the wallet'.   :great:

Got in at 8 PM Sunday evening, after a 9:30am departure from Robbinsville.
We took I26 to I95 for a one delay return home (SC/GA Border crawl).  Sue
wasn't happy with me taking SR129 South after Saturday....  I don't know why...

Thanks to the South East team for putting this together... Great venue, great time.   :)

Hope to be on two wheels for RWTW.   :great:

just got in this evening, stopped thru nashville late sunday for a visit with my brother. so i took a few detours on the way in.   this was my first event back riding since my little mishap at work and the 2 major and one minor surgeries  to get me back to riding condition and it couldnt have been better.  thanks to everyone who helped organize and pull off a great rally.  yall have no idea how pleased i was to be able to spend time with this group. its been nearly 2 years worth of surgery and rehab to get back. seeing everyone there as i rode up made me as happy as i have been in that time.

and the bit with the wallet was priceless, you literally cant plan stuff like that and the fact neither one could remember a thing about it made it even funnier.   kurt because he was preoccupied  and the other wouldnt have remembered a meteor strike. i feel bad for him, you know theres gonna be 40 wallets laying all over camp at the wolf.

Lesson learned. I'm usually good about securing my wallet and phone but something about being at IH and around my COG friends relaxed my to the point I was not concerned about it.

It also got me thinking that I should keep some cash and a credit card stashed some where on the bike for emergencys. Also scan my important documents like drivers licence, insurance cards, credit cards, etc.

So my take away from it is to be more security conscience and prepared.

Another solution would be to not allow the responsible (I use that term loosely  ;D) member within 50 feet of your campsite.   :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Just realizing, albeit late, that I missed this event. Couldn't have come on the Connie anyway with rear diff in shop now 6 weeks. Will be hoping to get it back before NEXT years rally! Anyone know a good shop that won't take MONTHS to replace two seals in a final drive - within 100 miles of Greenville SC? Rrrrr.

Sounds like good times had by all. Where's the pics??? I'm all about the voyeurism.  :))

 Check with Bill Goff, I believe he is parting out his old C14 that was totaled.
