I just decided to get my GL1000 and gave the seller some money down on it.

I was so excited about it,but realized that I didn't know anything about them, so I started looking into Goldwings online.

I found this site and after reading 60+ pages about converting to a single carb, I decided that this would be a great place to learn a lot more about 'Wings.

You give it back William, I see you helping out a lot with technical questions. Kudos to you and all the guys who do the same.

Googled "goldwing forums" and this was one of the first ones to come up. I asked a question about what was thought to be a bad motor and received lots of replies and good advice. I didn't really get hooked until I saw the fundraiser for a fella who had his bike burn up, and enough was raised to get him into a decent used one. As I recall, most folks didn't even know the fella personally but gave anyway. Good people here!

Yeah that happens a lot here. Plenty of good folk just jump in and help. Have a look in this thread, it has a list of other like good acts of kindness:
