Re: Fourth Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering - Aug 19-23 2020

I think it would be a good idea to get an accurate list of those who plan to attend. It is understood that some who were all in for the Gathering 6-8 months ago might be dropping out due to COVID-19 restrictions. Getting an accurate count will allow the planners to see if restaurants will be able to...

Upon re-reading this post, I can see that it did not convey properly what I wanted to say. I wrote it too quickly and without reviewing it. I apologize for any confusion or hard...

I will bring a mask and hand sanitizers just in case it is needed to enter a store or restaurant. I prefer not to wear one except as required by law.

Re: Fourth Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering - Aug 19-23 2020

I am planning on attending my first Gathering in Aug. I made my hotel reservations (got a discount due to being a Hilton Honors Member). Is there a registration form/document required? The last 3 years I was working in Belgium so could not attend. I did attend a few of the European Gold Wing Federa...

It might be a good idea for those who want to attend and are looking for a roomIe to post that info. I know that Corkster52 is looking for someone to share a room. There are probably others.

Re: Danger

The last line of your post says it all. I put on my helmet before I ever pull my Wing out of the garage. Even if you tip the bike in the driveway, when your head hits the concrete the results could be catastrophic. I can think of no logical reason to ever ride a motorcycle without a helmet. The risk...

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

Last year we had the same forecast if I remember right. Anybody remember what the actual weather was like? We might have to adjust when each ride is planned but I'm betting it will all be good. If it rains, I will don my rain gear and be just fine.
