I'll go if it doesn't conflict with a couple other rides I have planned. Last time I went to Hocking Hills I had a hard time finding a hotel with a vacancy. Not too many in the area.

Looking for an oil dipstick

Hi new to Gold Wings I have nice 78 GL 1000.
Was wondering if anyone knew of somewhere I can get a dipstick
with the markings of low to high?

Bad back makes it hard to put up on centerstand. I can straddle semi level.

Thank you so much in advance
