Yeah, sorry bout that shoveling snow thing - I did it three times today, but welcome to the site. It is a great site for Goldwing owners, in fact, the best on the web. Our WingAdmin, the site owner, is really knowledgable on wings, and writes all kinda How To do things articles. A couple other folks can answer questions also. Me - former Harley only owner and just getting to know wings, so not much of a source. :lol: I can probably help with Harley related Q's tho. :twisted:
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

Hello Steve and welcome to the website from the U.P. of Michigan. I completely understand the shoveling, I do enough of that here. But it gives me time to do the bigger jobs on my old trike. Don't know which one would have been more work, the Ram or the Wing. If it has been sitting for awhile you may have carb problems or timing belts if they haven't been changed in awhile. I hope it works out great for you, any questions shoot them our way.

Welcome. I am a bit rusty about shovelling snow, but I hear that you guys in the frozen north have to do something to keep warm. :roll: Never mind, by the time that you get the bike ready for riding, you will be approaching the warmer weather, that we seem to enjoy here most of the year. Keep smiling, and enjoy your ride.

Welcome!!

Friend of mine is in Boston for Christmas. Glad to hear he took the snow with him. It's been nice here. I wouldn't want him to get homesick for snow.

Welcome from the Pacific Northwest, we had a little snow, wasn't worth the effort to shovel.

Greetings and welcome from the UK.
I was touring New England back in October and it was pleasantly warm then.
Good luck with your project, how about some pictures?

Now, that there is funny, I don't care who you are! When I hit the lottery, the first place I'm going to visit is Australia. It has been a long time dream.

Chief,
You are quite welcome to visit. The culture, the language, and the people are not that much different between the two countries. Whenever I have travelled to the USA, I have always found people who say: "Australia, I would like to visit your country." In return, I would give them a US$1.00, and say to them, put that in a special account, and start saving, because "Memories are much better than dreams!"

Start saving, now! Lotteries are dreams. And bring a camera, everyone here loves photos :D The weather is pretty good all the year, and good enough for photos.

Redial, at my age I have a better chance of hitting the lotto than saving enough money to get to Australia! Hope springs eternal. Babycakes will probably bring a camera, but my favorite pictures are in my memory. Life is good!
