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

Hi Craig, There are no vendors or festivities other than lunch and dinner gatherings. The organizers of the event, Brian and Al, have done a lot of work planning rides, choosing restaurants, and looking for a suitable venue or hotel/motel. At it's core it is really just a bunch of riders getting tog...

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

Just my 2 cents on To Mask or Not to Mask If Shakespeare was alive today he might well be asking this question. In my humble opinion, the decision to wear or not wear a mask does NOT make a political statement. But it does make a statement. Wearing a mask says that I care about you, your family, and...

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

Hi all, I've attended all of the Goldwing Doc rides and have really enjoyed both the rides and time with friends but, unfortunately, due to Covid 19 I won't be able to make it this year. Border is still closed and with the situation in the US I am not even sure we will be able to spend the winter in...

Sounds like more and more folks like this area for the Fourth Annual Goldwing Docs ride. It's got my vote. Brian and Al, let me know if you want me to help with route planning, hotel research, etc.

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

Just found out from the GoPro forum that the GoPro 7 Black will not record video and charge at the same time. The suggestion on the forum is to remove the internal battery and use a charging brick instead. I wonder if I remove the internal battery and plug the camera directly into the charging unit ...

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

OK folks, I need your assistance. If anyone going to the ride has a GoPro7, I am having trouble playing the files on my laptop when I double click them or load them into 5k. They will not play at all using Windows software. So there's a challenge one evening when we're sitting around drinking beer. ...

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

Looks like the area is encountering a lot of storms right now. Let's hope they clear up before our ride. I think I'll hold off ordering a T shirt just in case I have to cancel my plans. If the trip goes ahead and you have an extra 2XL there I can buy one but I'll just take my chances. I know they ca...

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

Hi folks. Had a great time on the ride in Mineral Wells WV and Ohio, especially offroading with a GL 1800. For the guys on the ride with older GL 1800s, I just ordered the T valve stems from CycleMax but forgot which TPMS you are using. My GL1800A is a 2001 model. Can you let me know which TPMS you ...
