Re: ODD Add=ons

My 76 has the same "floorboards". Can`t figure out what they are for. To high for highway pegs, knees are in the air. But they are nice quality so I left them on.

Reverse trike

Saw this on Cleveland Craig`s list. Reverse trike based on a 97 gl1500 with a removable narrowed VW beetle body. Looks very interesting and the price is reasonable at $1800. Wiring looks to be a little crude! Located south of Cleveland. To see listing, search "reverse trike" on Cleveland Craig`s Lis...

New Years ride

Went for a short ride toay. After taking down the Christmas decorations I started up the Goldwing and took a short ride around the neighborhood. 50 degrees felt good but started to get a little damp. Now the weather is taking a big change, they say 6 to 10 inches of snow over the next few days. So t...

Re: Wing Ding 2012

Wing Admin...Fort Wayne a couple hours? How fast does that 1500 go? A friend wants me to go with him, but he wants to do it in a day. A little too much to get done in a day for me. Of course he is riding a 2012 Wing not a 29 year old one like me. What are the dates anyway? Dennis

Re: Classic

The Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club of America considers 15 years old "Vintage". The Antique Motorcycle Club of America uses 35years for their judging. In Ohio a vehicle has to be 25 years old to be issued historical license plates. Dennis

Re: First ride of the year

Got out yesterday for a short ride. Late afternoon it started droping in temperature, so I came back home. Now it looks like winter is coming back again. Weatherman says no 60s in foreseeable future.

First ride of the year

Took my first ride today. About 60 degrees and I couldn`t stand it. Went down to the park road, talked with all the other riders that made it out today. Doesn`t look like I will get another chance to ride for at least a week. Well I am refreshed maybe I can make it through the rest of winter.

Re: Do you guys trust motorcycle shops

I agree with you on Kevin. I don`t know who else is out there that will work on old bikes. It is worse with Harleys, I don`t want all my desirable vintage parts coming up missing when I get it back. I don`t know if Alsir is still in business, he used to be the man to see for older Goldwings in Cleve...

Re: Where's WingAdmin.

He was on yesterday. Today he is probably shoveling out. We are having a blizzard with 10-12 inchs of snow with 45 mph winds. Not good riding weather.
