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

I"m sorry I won't be at The Gathering later this month. I have actually had several motorcycle trips 'planned' this year and ALL were canceled not only due to this Covid thing but also because for the last couple of years I just haven't felt all that good. Last month I finally found out 'why'. Arou...

Re: Shelter-In-Place? 3 weeks to work on the Beast, ,

Just something to think about...be extra careful when out riding. With the Covid-19 virus filling hospitals to far beyond capacity, they are already turning away people who desperately need care, and making horribly difficult decisions on who to save and who to let die. I personally have a relative...

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

Comments to the City Council are worthless and totally uncalled for. They aren't about to change their tax structure for a complaint. The purpose of MY POST was to let everyone know that the VA STATE and LOCAL hotel taxes are 11+% and are not included in the hotels quote. Larry, my comment was mean...

Re: Spring rides...

I've been to AR on a mc just once. The plan was to Ride from Harrison for three days but constant rain expected drove most of us home after only one night there.

Re: Goodbye to Motorcycle Consumer News

I found MCN back when they were in black n white. Thought they were a great mc mag until they went to COLOR. It was all down hill from there and I let my subscription lapse. I'm not Riding as much as I used to so my Rider subscription will probably be next.

Re: Anyone been turned away from CycleMax?

I haven't made that many purchases from CycleMax but they have all been positive, even with the one return I made. I bought a new GoldWing jacket that apparently had been out of production for a long time. When they were being produced again I bought one from CycleMax. When it arrived the zipper wa...
