Hi y'all. Select photos of the rally.

Thanks to all that organized, prepared and ensured this event went off great. Even whoever managed to pull in the perfect weather!

I plan on attending this in the future.

Probably the best time I've had with my clothes on....Seriously though, I find it harder and harder to go home each time I attend a COG rally since I always have a great time and this one has got to be one of the best I can remember in a long time. 1700 miles total, two broke motor mount bolts, both uppers in Alexandria KY. Field expediant fix and made it home ok Monday night. First rally my bike was featured tech session victim. Yanked the forks, changed the oil and riding again in just under two hours, a few new cuss words and some metal splinters that are just now getting ripe. Thanks Al and Jack and the rest. Thank you Mark Arnold, Tim Curtis, Bill and Gloria Droke, and of course a guy named Patrick who rode a nice HD and goes by Mongo, I never could have done it so quick without you all, especially Mark who provided the technical know how concerning the dark secrets of cartridge emulators. After I tightened the one upper motor bolt, everything REALLY smoothed out, so maybe that was what was also causing the rough ride, plus, I'm going to adjust my steering stem bearings too since its still a little "clunky". Great roads, good food, and most important and what always brings me back besides the great coffee, fantastic people who really make COG what it is.   
it was a pleasure to meet you, as far as the impromptu tech session not a problem, glad I could help. the first cog rally I went to I arrived with a busted speedo cable that was fixed promptly including a donated cable while I stood by and wondered who these people were.  I just wish we had time to adjust the bearings before you left. I know how annoying that is.

The pictures aren't the best due to being taken with my phone, but you can tell we all had a good time. :)  I apologize for taking so long to get them posted!  I made sure to make the first picture the one of Reid and his memorable trip to the best breakfast ever that I bet most everyone that was at the rally will know the story!

Thanks for posting. Some great shots of a very good looking '99 at the campsite...  :)

Should the breakfast come with a bullet-proof vest?

"...very good looking '99 ..." Isn't that an oxymoron?  :rotflmao: :nananana: :beerchug:
