I stumbled across this place looking for some documentation on installing a CB radio... Spent waaaay too much time looking at all the other stuff on here and had to put it off to the next day!

Great site!

Be Well!

I was poking around on google trying to figure out how to work on an old goldwing that I took as payment on an old debt... Plan was to get it running and move it on to the next owner. ( I was far too young to ride a goldwing!!) After getting it running correctly and putting a few thousand miles on it, I wouldn't even consider parting with my wing. I spend most of my spare time on here reading up on the old 1100's quirks... and searching craigslist for a good deal on another one!

I got my first motorcycle, an old Bultaco Alpina, when I was about 14 years old. Since then I've always worked on my own bikes. When I bought my first Goldwing however, I quickly learned that I had picked an animal unlike anything I had had before and needed some guidance, SERIOUS guidance. Well, I did a lot of lurking on different sites, getting a feel for not only knowledge, but the general attitude of the members on it as well. What I found was interesting, especially when compared to other sites.

There are rules of conduct. And the main rule was, respect of others, their opinions and their rides. But the rule seemed almost unneeded, the attitude was just there. I noted that when there were disagreements, other members joined in, not to take sides and fan the flames, but to get both sides to calm down and listen to the other. Yeah, sometimes the mods had to kick in, sometimes it seemed a little to quickly, but I guess even adults need babysitters sometimes.

The next thing I noted was that no question was belittled or put down. Any question drew the support and suggestions from all members who had a possible solution. In fact, members were going out of their way to help find a solution. And everyone else took an attitude of wanting the answer as well in case they should have a similar problem.

The last thing I noticed, and this is fat from the least, everyone seemed to genuinely care about each other, whether they had met or not. If someone had something bothering them and needed to share or vent, there was a camaraderie. Hell, that's hard to find in people we interact with in person, let alone "technical" strangers.

Yeah, Steve may have started this little site over in the Emerald Isle, and probably had no idea of what it would turn into. But wow, what it did turn into. In the time I have been here, I have received help, advise and guidance, and I have tried to offer back what little I had to give.

Consider this, I have no idea how many countries, races, religions, political beliefs, etc. are represented here, and yet all are there for each other. Seemingly with only two thing in common. One is our love for riding, even to those who join us but don't have wings, and second, the common agreement that Green IS the fastest color.

Just because you\'re a paranoid doesn\'t mean they\'re not out to get you.
