Announcing a dark and disturbing Long Distance motorcycle event for 2012...


Posted Image


As we have done for the last two Cognoscente Group events, we are opening this event up to the FJR community for a couple days before we announce it to the LDRider community. We have already sent invites to Cognoscente veterans, and this event became well past half-full after just one day!

The Cognoscente Group is happy to host one last event before Doomsday arrives....

Announcing the 2012 "End of Days - Zombie Apocalypse!"

The End of the World predictions for 2012 sound pretty grim.... SO WHAT BETTER REASON TO RIDE?!!!!!!!!!

This particular Cognoscente Group event is among the most sick and twisted that we have ever put together.... so you definitely want to be a part of it! We have assembled some of the most demonic and disturbing bonus locations found anywhere in the country, every one of them deeply tied to the End of Days in some dark form or fashion.

But make no mistake, this is still a Cognoscente Group event, and that means extreme riding. This event has the longest minimum mileage to be a finisher of any event we have hosted. The Top Dogs who will stand upon the podium will have well in excess of 2000 miles.

"Can't save the world? Then prepare for its end!"

We have less than 2 dozen spots remaining... move fast if you want in....

When I saw this thread title on the Forum Home Page "Recent Topics Added" I would have bet my FJR that it was in some way designed/written/formatted in response to SkooterG going Darkside.

Wish I could join you guys. I just bought some of these...

...for my Glock 40 in anticipation of the "Apocalypse" and it would have been fun to show those around the pre-ride.

Awesome! :lol:

While I can't get into specifics, there will be some weapons associated with this event.... though none that take this particular ammo. ;)

Yes, it seems Hornady makes some ammo completely appropriate for this event! Did you have something to do with that Dale?

Youse guys oughta start watching "The Walking Dead" on AMC...... :D

Zombies are attracted to noise and light. So you really want to minimize gunfire unless the situation is truly overwhelming.... you'll just attract other Walkers if you go around shooting them.

That's why we are interested in either silenced weapons... or weapons that are silent.... :lol:

Ive done some quick dirty calculations. It should be a real interesting rally huh Watkins? Lol....

Mr Warchild, have you set up a board for this like Bob had for the GBU? That was cool. Where we could all talk beforehand....
