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

Ya just can't do it justice trying to see it at the 'end of the day'. https://wheelsthroughtime.com/ Three or four hours, you'll still wanna come back. I per...

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...

Looking forward to the Ride today.

Hey James, Does this ol' Ford Graveyard look familiar to ya? It's SW of Tallahassee on a N-S Hwy.
I forget exactly where. We were at the Sheriff's Boys Ranch near Live Oak on a mission project. While there I took some time for Riding.

For you guys that have never been to W-Va, you won't be seeing it all on this Ride. If you flattened W-Va out,......

I went ahead and reserved a Double Queen room for 4-nights. (Sept 12th and leaving Sept 16th) I reserved using the block of rooms that Brian reserved for us under the "GoldWing Docs" group name. The $95/night rate did not include the 12% in taxes for the Gov so total for one night comes to $106.40 ...

Re: Macgyver Belly Pan

I think a bellypan is a good idea and have used one for years. They do get dinged and dented over the years (maybe that shows why they're needed at all) and maybe should be replaced once in a while. Macgyver was a fellow on another board (don't know if he's on this one or not) who made them in his ...

Re: 2nd Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering - Sep 13-16, 2018

I'm very interested in this gathering whether it be in Ohio or W-VA. I've never ridden much in the Hocking Hills area but have been to W-Va several times and am willing to go back again too.
I have a Mini-Mate camper so if there are some other campers attending that would be good too.

Russ, I think I have it. It's in our RV I believe but there is a terrific storm going through right now. Will try to look before we leave in an hour or so for a family gathering. If not, it will be when I get home from the hospital. It's a stock one from my 2007 which I believe is the same as a 2006...
