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. 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. Camping is a short ride away.

The LODGING and CAMPING pages provide details to book your desired accommodations.

The RIDING page provides information for riding around the rally area.

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.

If you will be in need of servicing your bike while at the rally, the local dealer Wheels of WIlliamsport has offered to give or rally attendees priority service.
