European Member Numbers?

Post by Mick1836 »



Hi and Good Morning fellow Goldwing owners, I was just wondering how many members there are from Europe and which Goldwing they own?

To start the ball rolling, I own a 2019 Tour DCT Airbag and I’m from Stafford, England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 UK 🇬🇧

Would be brilliant if @WingAdmin could dump the dB 'members' table, and sort it by country. This way we get a list of username, country, and bike.

I'm guessing that's going to be one very long list of users though!


Any chance of summary stats by country and model @WingAdmin? E.g. U.S. 3000 members, 10% GL1000's, 12% GL1100's, etc...

What constitutes a current member though? Anyone who has logged in this year? Last 12 months?
I guess there are quite a few that read but don't very often (if ever) post, in which case, they may not bother signing up, or signing in.

I agree, it would be very interesting to know, and what might be more interesting is those few or even single members we might have in more obscure places, like how many in Grenada, Barbados, the Maldives, St Kitts, Malta etc... A measure of how far around the globe Gold Wings have migrated!

I'm in Leicester UK and have two GL1500's (1991 SE, and an immaculate 2000 SE) I'm just a sucker for a fat-old 4th gen... Best thing to have come out of the 1980's next to PCs, and the Delorean.

I would have LOVED to have done this...but I would have had to have done it 14 years ago when I first started the forum. Unfortunately, the fields holding the location and motorcycle information are just text fields, so people typed whatever they felt like in there. Some people typed "USA" some people typed in their city. For motorcycles, there are so many different entries.

And with 94,000 members, it would take a LOT of work to standardize all of that!!

FFS!!!! 94,000 members!!!!

WOW!!!

Have you considered some analytics to see where people are browsing from, ip-addtess-wise?

Would be good to see that data at least!

...and, your data could be interpreted quite quickly I would have thought with a bit of ai applied.

Thank you WingAdmin.

Amazing to know that outside of the U.S. and Canada, the U.K. has three times the number of users browsing goldwingdocs.com than anywhere else in the world.

...although I'm currently on vacation, typing this from Tenerife!

Hi there.

Mine is a 2005 in silver. I live on the Isle of Bute (an island in the Firth of Clyde).
Generally do fairly short day runs of about 200 miles around the roads up the West coast and around the central belt.

Sounds wonderful Don. I'm looking forward to doing the north-coast 500. One day maybe!

I used to do a lot of sea kayaking off the coast of Oban. Sailed the length of the Caledonian canal, also paddled the same trip in open (Canadian) canoes, rough-camping along the way.

Went walking in Cape wrath, shortly after hurricane Andrew hit the states, and we got the tail-end of the weather. When would that have been, 1992?

Could have been.....I was working between the Mediterranean and the North Sea at that time.
I rode a Yamaha XS850 triple from Naples to Scotland in the spring of 92 (got knocked off the bike in Genoa and was told "Sorry I did not see you" in Italian :D ).
Got a neck strain from the wind blast, fitted a fairing to the bike and never rode a naked bike again.

Approaching 70 now and have basically given up on long hauls.
Love the Goldwing for its power, handling and comfort, treat it more like a dual sport / tourer which accommodates my "frisky" moments as well as the sedate ones.

Regards
Don

I hear you. Sometimes wish I'd something lighter, more-powerful, and generally more nimble than a 1500, but she handles pretty dynamically for a fat bird, and I'd probably only hurt myself on something faster. 😁
