Hello, I am Bryan from Oklahoma, USA. I recently joined the ranks of proud GW owners with the purchase of my 1986 GL1200I. MY SO and I are ridng the crap out of it.... 800 miles and 3 states last weekend, and almost 600 miles the weekend before. What fun!

This board seems to have quite a few interesting threads with interesting posters. Off to dig in...

The sign on the mirror said, "Employees MUST Wash Hands Before Leaving Restroom". I waited and waited, but no one came in, so I washed them my damn self. Guess I\'m just a rebel like that.

Welcome to the forum from Ont.,Canada
Lots of good reading and info here.When I first joined I spent about a week reading all the back posts.The bike was put away for winter,so I had a bit of time on my hands before sledding.

Welcome to the World's Greatest Goldwing Site Okiebryan!

You're in the right place if you're a Goldwing convert! The 1200 was one of the best looking of the Goldwings too.

Welcome to the forum. Next time you are looking to make a medium run, come down to Abilene. I'll put a steak on the grill and have a cold one in the fridge for you.

A big warm welcome from here over the Big Pond Okiebryan, nice to have you on board.

Now that you have made that "right move" into Winging, you will be enjoying the delights that the Wing can offer. Just a case of maintain and ride . You will soon discover the fellowship that comes from meeting other Wingers aswell, which is second to none.

Enjoy the forums here and visit often with reports of your trips away. Don't miss out on putting any pics in the gallery too, we never get tired of seeing other Wings!!
