I have ask a lot of questions on here while I'm getting used to the site. Everyone has been super cool and helpful and I thank you for the patience. As I get more used to the site I will ask a lot less questions. Thanks to you all, everyone is super cool and I appreciate it....Rick.

Not at all! I think the users here pride themselves on being friendly and helpful, and I'm certainly happy to have a site whose main feature is the friendliness and helpfulness of its users. :)

If I were you, I wouldn't worry too much about asking lots of questions :) Sometimes the answers to those questions provide a clue to someone elses "nagging" little problem and everyone learns a little more about their bike. :D

Many times I read a posted question and think to myself "Oh yeah, I wondered about that too." and then there's "I was wondering about that too but didn't want to ask."

I have to say that you have found one of the best sites in terms of knowledge, great guidance and definitely friendly folks.
since I joined last May, I quickly found out this was the place to be if one were at a crossroads on their project like I was. There would be no way I would have achieved some of the attempts with my bike if I had not found this site. Great people, healthy sense of humours and definitely experts in the field. The quality I appreciate the most is a general respect for this art. Yes, I view the goldwing as a work of art :D

Hmmmmm, Obviously you like lots of nudes in your art! :twisted: I prefer the lady to be in her finery, so that you have to imagine how good she looks when she is undressed, rather than having her showing her bits all over the world, like a hussy :shock:

That's how I view art. In its natural state, without all the coverup.
I'm sensing Redial wants me to put her clothes back on.
All those in favour say , "Aye"

AYE

However, it is your GW, you can dress / undress it the way you like, but I think that all Gw have some class about them, and they definitely look better in all their finery. Me, myself, and personally would hate to have noisy exhausts on Sleeping Beauty, but I could probably learn to live with the other modifications, seeing that you have done them so well.

I trust that this is taken in the spirit of friendliness, and no offence is meant nor intended. It doesnt matter to me how your GW looks, just enjoy it!

I will know when you are happy, by all the bug guts on your teeth :!: :roll: :lol: :lol:

I don't know whats happening to me ;) For some reason I want to get her back to all her original glory now. If I can get the front suspension figured out, I might paint her clothes to match her sides and off we go.
Planning a trip this Summer, and the way she is now, not going happen. so why did I do this? Because I can :D

Yep, I'm the unlucky one. Got all the repairs completed on the bike. Going to do the timing belts while I still have things apart. Doing all the filters, fluids, etc, while I still can't ride. Dr says it is healing well, but slowly mending the bone. :( Thinks that my testosterone level is low and that will cause slow bone growth. Added a vitamin supliment to help that out some. Swelling is finally going away. Old age isn't helping anything either. :lol: Hope to be back riding soon. :D
