BTW, Ill be sixty eight in less than 2 weeks. I gave up riding while raising a family and took it up again when I was 62. It's not how old you...

Re: 2005 high beam upgrade

I was considering doing a change to LED on my high beams until I saw a you tube video. I'll do it when one of my present bulbs bites the bullet.

Re: Third Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering - Sep 11-15, 2019

Now that the venue has been set I will get to work on routes using Honda Trip Planner. Starting location will be the motel with rides to the Tail of the Dragon, Little Switzerland, and Wheels Thru Time Museum. If anyone has particular roads that should be incorporated into routes now is the time to ...

Em, thanks for the great suggestions. The Inn and conference center look like a nice place. I like the idea of staying in the Maggie Valley area. It is centrally located in some great riding areas. I am going to start working on some routes that we can choose from. Looking forward to seeing you next...

I use a scala rider bluetooth to communicate with my wife while we are riding. It also connects to my phone which allows me to call and answer calls while riding. I also play music that is stored on my phone. I have no problem conversing with her .

I've already identified motels. Just gathering information to see if they could accomodate us. Will post shortly... most likely in a separate thread. I think it best to have only one thread. We had 2 separate threads this year and some people got confused. BTW, when you have a hotel lined up let me...

Al, Maggie Valley is certainly a great area to Ride in but personally I found the hotels to be a little on the high side. I don't know anything about Little Switzerland. In past years, I have stayed with groups in Robbinsville and Franklin, NC and was happy with the prices and certainly the area to...

I just want to thank everyone who rode at the 2nd Annual Gathering for putting up with the only non-GoldWing, non-Honda, trike. I had a good time and hope to sneak in again next year. I gained quite a bit of knowledge about handling my trike in the twisties. Us old folks are slow learners. It was a...

Home safe and sound. A little over 400 miles today including a great ride thru Ohio led by Dave Hyatt. We rode over to Athens Ohio then took SR 56 northwest to Circleville. Another great route among many. From there Dave led us thru Columbus and into Delaware ( Thank the good Lord for a local guy to...

Rain gear is always packed but hope I don't have to use it. Looking forward to seeing you late Wednesday afternoon. How about posting...
