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

With the chatter that's been on here about next years gathering, I started a new thread here: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=53786

Where ever it ends up being, I'll be there!

Fourth Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering - Sep 2020

With so much chatter for the next Gathering, I figured I'd start this thread.

So far, the Wise/Tazewell, VA areas have been suggested for rides on the "Back of the Dragon", and "Claw of the Dragon", where a bit of interest has been shown.

What say you?

Any other suggestions?

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....

Last year it was supposed to rain and we never got a drop. 3 days of perfect weather. Maybe we get lucky again.
Yep, praying for dry as well!

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

Keep in mind that a 40% chance of rain is really a 60% chance of sun :D While true, it has been my experience of late, that I'll be within that 40% area that it's pouring down! Trying to keep the rain gods at bay... If all atrendees bring rain gear, it won't rain. Bring your sunglasses.... 😎 YES, W...

well my boot might come off on 9 / 11 but I still won't be in shape to make the M & G, my foot gets sore just walking and it doesn't take much walking to irritate it

Re: TravLite Camper Set-Up

Thanks for the setup photos, they should come in handy. I will say though, it looks like I might have a different model. the two side boards have fold-outs that wrap around the forward support to the peak, and there is an extension on the top and both sides ave the extensions as well.

If you're thinking ti's going to be a "go slow" around the curves, I'll be there right with you! I've only been riding 11 years, and this is only my third on a wing.

Do either of you have pictures or the instructions as to how this is set up? I recently purchased an 84 that needs work (popped rivets, broken table and extensions panels) Photos should help greatly with my restoration efforts.

Completed adding my Aux port to my radio, but rather than having a cord, I installed a stereo jack into the radios upper case. I also used a DPDT switch as opposed to the relay that needed separate power. Though I normally keep my cover on, I still need to come up with a plug for the port on my rare...
