High Five Ride Moorefield WV - August 5-9

For those that don't know: I ride about 10K-15K miles a year, starting in May and ending in October. COVID has put a damper on things but motorcycling is the ultimate in social distancing! Every two weeks I have rides planned to various locations. Normally, these rides are invitational only and atte...

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 i...

I feel the same way. He almost didn't come last year either. He didn't decide till the night before we left.
Jeff, I'm sorry your father won't be coming... his wit and sense of humour will be missed! Give my best to him.

Re: Trailer picture thread

Hey Blue Thunder, My son has a Uni-Go trailer but is having problems with the trailer cracking. He had the frame beefed up but it is still cracking. Have you had that problem and if so, how did you solve it? Thanks. Ride Safe! The early UniGo's were made in New Zealand. The NZ ones suffered cracked...

Wondering, will there be a 2020 GoldwindDocs gathering? Also is this around the same time as Cherokee Rally. One of my favorite gathering places.

How do the Chineses steal? An American company has a manufacturing "partner" or contracts with a Chinese manufacturer to...

Just a reminder... If you think you might be coming but are unsure due to fluid future obligations (not to mention the current situation 😳), the cancellation policy of the motel is very generous. Because of the current virus situation, you can cancel 24 hours before the ride without penalty. I would...

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

I have to agree with KL from Deer Park, WA. It sounds like fun, just wish it wasn't a 5,200 mile round trip. I understand it has to be held where you'll pull the most number people, but being held so far East leaves those of us on The West Coast unable to attend. This is a common "problem" with any...

I spoke with Hampton Inn and the matter has been rectified. Use the link if you are able to.

As of today, the Gathering is still a go. Should the pandemic situation get worse, God forbid, please check back here for further info. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Comments to the City Council are worthless and totally uncalled for. They aren't about to change their tax structure for a complaint.

Can the subject of the thread be changed to reflect the new dates? It might help people realize that it is not happening after Labor Day.

$109/nite PLUS 11% for the Gov, right?
Posted room rate does not reflect any state or local taxes and/or fees. These are not set by Hampton Inn. Send any comments regarding taxes to:
