Re: Questions regarding "older" men and Goldwings

I have taken the plunge and purchased the "Legs Up" 'training wheels'. They should be here next week, so I will write a review when I have some experience with them. They provide a pretty good write up on their web pages on how to fit them, so if anyone was to stuff it up, Redial is the man! I stil...

Re: Going back to OEM from floor board & heal/toe shifter

If you are in there doing this work, don't forget to contemplate including a shift brace and oil seal to assist in your smoothness.

They don't look too healthy from the pics. How long did it take; and would you say you are experienced at this sort of thing, or an "old has been" like this dinosaur?

Were you aware that IBM have been selling, developing, and using Linux for some years on their mainframes (or what passes as mainframes), for some years now.

Re: Engine heaters anyone?

I found the green, again.
It is far too warm here to think about engine heaters. Perhaps 33c at 1030am is an indication why we do not need much heating, especially in our summer. Think warm, and enjoy the ride.

Re: Happy New Year

It's a bit late, but the weather here has been around 49C for the last two days, we are having a rest day today, as it is only 39C. I am still thinking of you all in the frigid north, and hope things get better quickly. Have a better NY, to you all.

"Legs Up" or Reverse Trike

I am at the stage in life where I still like to ride, but my strength is not good enough to hold the GW up, at 76 years young. I am ok on the Honda 250, but the GW is warning me off. I have thought of two alternatives, the Legs Up, or a Reverse Trike by Endeavor. I am on a fixed income (pension), so...

Re: 1985 Gold Wing Limited Altimeter

As it works on air pressure, you should know your altitude and the air pressure at that time of setting. Be aware of a high pressure (usually still air), and low pressure (when storms or rain). You should be able to follow the weather maps for your area to find a fairly neutral day.

Re: Trip To Big Sur State Park - Lee's Honda Redding CA

We are having a cool day, today, so I have had to put a pullover on to ward against the cold of 23C (about 75F). The grapes are just coming on the vines, so think of me in my shorts (not underwear), sitting in the sun and peeling the grapes that I do not eat whole! No white stuff here!

Well, Mag, thinks have been busy, but non-productive. I have had some health issues, my brother (younger) smashed his leg interstate, and spent 7 weeks in hospital. I had to retrieve him, then arrange for him to fly to Darwin from Adelaide (about 3000 Km), with a wheelchair. Then empty his car (trav...

If you really want to know what the Japanese characters say, you can take a photo and invoke Google to translate for you. But I think a picture is worth a million characters!

Be careful removing the working parts from a fridge, they do have dangerous gases that can cause serious problems (phosgene is one).

Thanks, Brett and Sid, our cricketers did not start off too well against the Kiwis (New Zealanders), but the bowlers are practicing hard, from what I hear. The coach comes from about 30 Km away from here, the well known coach and former all-rounder Darren Lehmann. Cricketers are like the American a...
