Ephrata Bikers Breakfast Events for 2019 [PA-MD]

There is still interest in meeting for another round of the first Sunday Bikers Breakfast events in Ephrata, PA.  The weather last year was horrid, and cut down attendance for the entire event and not just COG.  The turnout for a few of the events was still strong.  I will get around to posting the events on the calendar soon.

We will follow the same format at other years.  Arrive between 8:30 and 10:30 AM and check out the thousand or so bikes.  We then plan for some type of optional informal ride or -ride to eat- on the way out, leaving around 11:00 AM.  We park near the loading dock at the upper end of the parking lot.

The address for the Bikers Breakfast is:
American Legion Post 429
300 Cocalico St
Ephrata, Pennsylvania

Here are the dates for next year. 

April 7th
May 5th
June 2nd
July 7th
August 4th
September 8th
October 6th

If anyone wants to lead a ride to a lunch spot, go for it. The Pro's tip is to lead a ride that gets you close to your own house, and of course you know the good roads to get there.  Otherwise there are lots of great rides to choose from, and it's always negotiable in the parking lot.    :motonoises: 

Here are the dates and the links to the COG calendar for the events.

I agree the weather is looking good.  Jack and I plan to be there.  I think the chicken burger with the american cheese is actually better than the burgers, but its a close call.  Bet you cant eat just one.  :nananana:

I was there this morning and met a couple of you guys. Nice to meet you!

FYI for future events ....someone was walking around with an RFID credit card chip reader and got my info.  I had over $100 charged to Bike Bandit online about an hour after I left this morning.  I cancelled the card and notified Bike Bandit.  I’m going to do my best to catch the MF’er 🤬.

Bummer on that. From what I understand someone cannot just passively read a card. Did you buy something and use your card?  What do you think happened?

I’ve read a number of conflicting articles about the RFID chips.  I’m definitely going to find out.  I can tell you I didn’t use that card recently but I had it with me this morning.  I use PayPal when shopping online and it isnt attached to that card.  I paid cash for breakfast and I didn’t buy anything while I was there.  Strange that motorcycle parts were purchased an hour after I left a motorcycle rally....
Oh well. Card was cancelled and Bike Bandit was contacted.

Sunday May 5th is looking like a washout.  If it's raining I will not be there.  This is looking like a carbon copy of last year where it rained most first Sundays  :mad:

Well weather was good , I'm thinking there were 5 COG members there & hundreds of other riders , with every manufacturer parked in the lots . It sure did rain later in the day with torrential downpour & hail & wind strong enough to knock over trees , hopefully we will see more of you next month

1st Sunday coming up the end of this week 9/1/19, I'll be there
True story and thanks for the reminder. I'm going to try to get there, but it will be a quick in and out if I can make it.  The chicken sandwich with cheese is calling....
