2019 National Rally


2019 marks the Concours Owners Group 30th anniversary.
No other group dedicated to the Kawasaki Concours has been around this long.  Let’s celebrate together. Most in attendance at the 2016 COG NE Spring Fling indicated they wanted to return. Instead of keeping it a regional event, it was decided to make it a big party.

Rally Master Jason Kaplitz, Northeast Area Director Steve Smith, and the entire NE Staff and 2019 Rally Team are excited to invite all to the Concours Owners Group Keystone National Rally 2019.

The “rally central” venue is in the heart of the quaint and small Williamsport PA downtown, which is easily walkable from the selected hotels. There are plenty of places to eat & drink, small shops to browse, and even a Wegmans to pick up snacks, beverages, and sundry items.

Here in the Susquehanna River Valley region, the Allegheny Mountains meet the Allegheny Plateau, and is dissected by the Susquehanna River – the longest river on the east coast. This combination of the mountains, river, and tributaries make for many twisty, hilly roads to ride on. There is terrific riding in all directions, plenty of fun destinations, and wonderful scenery in Pennsylvania and the Finger Lakes region of New York.

Visit the Wellsboro, PA area, less than an hour north. It is one of COG NE favorite rally destinations which still has gas street lighting, lots of small shops, and a small central green with the unique Winken, Blinken and Nod statue. The Pennsylvania Grand Canyon, a popular tourist location, is located near Wellsboro.

This region is home to a large elk herd. The Elk Country Visitors Center, Winslow Hill Elk Viewing Area, Dents Hill Elk Viewing Area are a couple hours northwest of rally central. Longer day excursions in PA are possible to visit Gettysburg, Lancaster County (PA Dutch country), or Flight 93 National Memorial.

Head north to New York and tour the Finger Lake region. Visit some of the many wineries, Watkins Glen State Park, Glenn Curtiss Museum, Corning Glass Museum, or Wings of Eagles Discovery Center.

These web pages will begin to be expanded in coming months to provide rally details on things to do, camping, local food & drink, and tourist information.

Stay tuned…
