Re: Fifth Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering: August 25 - 29, 2021

Hi all, I am looking forward to the gathering this year as last year was the first one I have missed due to the border being closed. I have missed all the good friends I have met in the previous rides. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. Let's hope the border is open. I look f...

Re: Fifth Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering: August 25 - 29, 2021

Being very new to this group I have not participated in any events so far but this sounds like fun. I am interested in joining in on this years event. Glad to have you on board! You will meet the nicest people and have a blast riding the many excellent roads. It will be hard to wipe the smile off!

Re: Metzeler Lasertec

My buddy loved Metzlers on his 1981 Honda CB750K. Lasertec on his front and ME880 on the rear - for years. With that in mind he rode like a little old man on Sunday. I never used them so I can't attest to their gripness, dry or wet, longevity or suitability on a GW. Now Purrelli Sport Demons were fa...

Will there be a registration for this ride and a host hotel ? This would be my first time attending... There is no registration per se. A room reservation will be required once a suitable motel is selected. That information will be posted in the coming months. We would love to meet you and I can gu...

Isn't this the same basic area/region where the gathering was last year? EDIT: I looked back and they've all been in this area. The first one was up in Ohio, but that still isn't too far from this region. I have no complaints since I'm in the middle, near Dallas, but has there been any discussions ...

Not for this ride. We will be trying this concept out in July on the Pilage and Plunder Ride in MI and WI. If successful we can certainly try it next year.

Over the past couple of years, members have submitted various places to ride. Far too many to decide. This year the ride ...

Re: 2002 1800 Goldwing 1500.00

CALIFORNIA won't transfer title to me without back fees paid. Secondarily the former owner's brother is a lein holder (long since paid off) but now lives in Mexico so is nearly impossible to have him sign off on the lein, so if and when the title changes hands there is that issue. I could purchase ...

CA is a title state. Where is the title? For NY all you need is the title and doesn't care if bike's registration has expired (in terms of getting it road legal).

Is the stock bulb a H4? If yes I have LED H4 bulb you can have.

I changed all bulbs over to LEDs on my GL1000. Love the brightness, longevity and increased charging capability.

What I am interested in is when you were gathered at the motel to visit. How did you handle it? To and from the rooms, vending machines, checking in/out, etc. masks were worn. Do not disturb signs were placed on the room doors so only the occupants entered the room. Additional towels were obtained ...

Does anyone have an approximate number of miles that we traveled from Wednesday afternoon until our last ride Saturday? Doing the math, (which I basely suck at) I only get 389 miles. Does that sound close to right? From Wednesday to Saturday.... 794.2 miles. Corky I haven't forgotten about the GPX ...

Re: MadStad GL1500 Windshield

I'm curious to know how it does in rain, being that it lifts away from the fairing a bit to let air in behind the windshield from the bottom. Does rain come up through there as well, as a result? AZGl1800 loves his on his GL1800 as well: https://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=41967...
