Re: It is never to early to plan: 2019 GoldwingDocs Gathering

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...

Re: Bluetooth Communication Question

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 .

Re: It is never to early to plan: 2019 GoldwingDocs Gathering

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...

Re: It is never to early to plan: 2019 GoldwingDocs Gathering

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...

It is never to early to plan: 2019 GoldwingDocs Gathering

It is never to early to start thinking about the 3rd Annual East Coast Gathering. BPM Jim, Bluethunder and myself have volunteered to put together a great ride for next year. The consensus reached last weekend was to plan next years gathering in the Maggie Valley or Little Switzerland areas of North...

Re: 2nd Annual Gathering 9-13-16/2018 - Hotel Info

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...

Just checked the weather for the area and looks like 40 - 50% chance of rain but mainly at night or late afternoon. Still planning on coming and hoping for the best. 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...

Re: Michigan Road Trip - June/ Suggestions?

Stop by and see the Sleeping Bear sand dunes. Biggest sand box in the Midwest. Don't pass by all the fudge shops near Mackinaw. Stop by and satisfy your sweet tooth. Traverse City has some nice craft beers as does Elk Rapids and Petosky. All are on US 31 on the way to the Tunnel of Trees.

Thanks for the link, unfortunately I will not have the cash to buy before tax season, no matter how good the deal may be.


There are a lot of nice 1800s for sale on that site. A lot of members there are buying the 2018.

Ok, I am going to most likely be selling my current bike, a 1996 Aspencade with 160K on it due to mileage and more importantly, how hard it is to get body panels for it....

Re: 2nd Annual Gathering 9-13-16/2018 - Motel Info

Will plan to arrive on Wednesday afternoon. Looking forward to seeing the whole group from last year plus a few new faces. Hopefully I will be meeting up with others for the ride down. Last year we had Corkster 52, Wingcott, Detdrbuzzard, and myself. Hope we all ride together again.
