North Central North Carolina

Hi y'all. I'm Max (aka Stayfree) located in Gibsonville, NC. I've been 'winging it' since 1976. As best I can remember I've owned 5 Goldwings, 1 Valkyrie, and a custom trike (hybrid 84 wing mated to a 95 Subaru engine and drive line). (I also have 2014 Can Am which my wife claims is hers.) Accumulated mileage is in the neighborhood of 250,000 miles, give or take. From freeways to dirt roads, rain or shine and even a few snow storms, hot deserts and sub zero trips, I never passed up an adventure if at all possible.

Over the years I gave up 3 Goldwings in a divorce, (may she ... well never mind), traded my Valkyrie for the hybrid trike, and currently have a 2000 SE with sidecar and an 89 SEI. I am working to restore both Goldwings right now in preparation for Spring.

If anyone is in the NC area give me a shout and we'll get together for a cup of coffee or even better a bit of a ride.

I recently retired so I finally have a little time on my hands.

I have lurked in the forums from time to time for several years and maybe now I'll have a chance to participate a bit.
