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

It was the first time to be able to go to the gathering. My wife and I enjoyed it very much!! A great group of people to ride and share with. I look forward and hope to be able to attend the next one. One area to consider would be the Eastern part of Kentucky. From North to South on the Eastern par...

Here is the website for the "Claw of the Dragon" which is a number of loops around the "Back of the Dragon" and the Wytheville area in Virginia.

Some look like all day rides. They all look interesting.

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

I did have a friend from Maryland tell me that he and his son rode the entire Blue Ridge Skyway (489 miles) in 2014 and, since everyone I talked to at the gathering liked the portion of it that we rode, maybe such a trip might be an option to consider for next year. As it turns out Corky, the Wise/...

He needs the $$ to get the shirts made. 20 shirts x $20.00 = $400.00. He probably does not have extra cash to front every body. Then if someone does not show up (weather, family crisis etc.. ) then he is stuck with a bunch of shirts. He requested if no paypal then contact him. Hope to see everyone ...

Mark, see if there is a Kurviger app for the iPhone. If yes, you can import the GPX file directly to it. I use an app called Scenic on my I phone. It has a free version you can use for a limited time. I buy the premium version for 10.99 a year. You can load gpx directly into it. There is no iPhone ...

The cost is $20/shirt. You may order as many shirts as you wish. Payment is to be made by PayPal to wireguy5...

Thanks. This helped me find out that the Google Maps app on the iPhone does not, in fact, accept gpx imports. Only Maprika and Gaia so far.

Now I'm looking into file converters gpx --> kml.

I don't think there is a way to download a GPX file into a pre-2012 on board Garmin. I searched Google, YouTube and this forum. So if any of you have any specific information I am all ears. I am currently planning to email the GPX to an iPhone mounted on the "handlebars" and open it in the Google Ma...
