Gone with time!

Post by huntsman47 » Fri Feb 01, 2019 1:12 pm



This is a note to the Administrators as well as to all Goldwing members. I have had to give up my riding for medical reasons and sell my bike, it caused me a few tears. I would like to personally thank all of the members who helped me with all my questions. The help was deeply appreciated! I think that this site is the very best on the internet! So, again THANK YOU ALL! Ride safe all--------huntsman47.

It's sad to hear, but you had 5 good years of riding in your "second life" retirement, so no matter what, you will have those memories. Hope you're doing all right!

It'll happen to all of us at some point. I remember when my dad gave up riding. He was only 59 and it was after his second stroke that he decided he could not risk being on the bike and have the next one, so he gave me his GS850G. Unfortunately, we never got to ride together. He did get to see my 2016 Wing just 3 weeks before he passed and was very impressed. He also mentioned that he was glad to see that I was back riding again and happy that my wife and I enjoyed riding together.

His favorite bike was his Suzuki 750 "Waterbuffalo."

Hunstman, I hope you will be able to look back with fond memories for many more years of all the great times you had riding. I'm not sure if my dad did or not because he was a very private person and didn't talk about his feelings much. It was almost 20 years since he gave up riding before passing. About the only regret he ever mentioned was that we never got to ride together.

As the others have done, I'm glad you were able to ride for the time you did. I got out for about 20 years and am so glad my son talked my sister and mom into helping him buy me a 1980 GL1100! He couldn't have gotten me a better present if he tried. Though I am sure he wondered when I threatened to sell it so many times because of the problems but I am so glad I didn't!

It gave me so much enjoyment, taught me how to better fix a motorcycle and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The 1982 was a pleasure and now my 2006 is even more so. I'll ride till I can't just like you did. I have to say vacations have been so much fun for the last 3 years. Only took my truck on one of them!

I hope you can enjoy your memories and do well.

Ride Safe.
