Re: Colorado

You can click on "members" at the top right of the page and go through each letter of the alphabet, but that will take time. Maybe start a thread "looking for members close to........". Here are two other sites with many GW riders and both have more activity. http://gl1800riders.com/forums/forumdisp...

For now, Big Bird will probably be my last bike. The extra cost for the air bag spread out over many years is additional protection that is well worth it to me.

This was supposed to have taken place in the UK. You'd have thought a neighbor or two would have garden hoses long enough to reach the bike. But, a gas fire is a different animal.

Re: Osama bin Laden is killed

I don't want to start an argument because I really hope this is true. Reports say they buried him at sea. Why would they do that?? Without pictures and /or video there will always be some doubt they they got him. At least with Sadam you knew you had the right guy. Besides the DNA of his sister bein...

Re: Osama bin Laden is killed

Glad Obama broke his campaign promise about closing Gitmo (his far left base is still not happy about that), but seems like some intel was gained from a detainee. But, let's hope the DOD keeps the pedal to the metal since retaliations all over the world are about to begin. Great job to the seal team...

Re: the best rain suit

I carry a pair of rain pants (LEO store) and day-glo green rain jacket (Wear Guard). Both roll-up nice and I just slip a rubber band around them. With visibility usually poor in the rain, the jacket improves that issue. The jackets liner is removeable if used in warmer weather.

Re: Goldwing 2012

There are some of us who are "guessinng" that the 2012 GW is a temporary model allowing Honda to generate some buzz/sales while they continue to work on a really new model. Personally, I myself would wait until later this year when the next years models are announced. If it's the same as 2012 with o...
