Way to buoyant for diving, I is.

Or was it his son?
That's what weights are for Bud. The fluffier we are, the more boyant and therefore more weight is needed. I think I was at pert near 50#'s of lead last dive.
My Goodness John, I'd have to tie a Volkswagon on my back then !!

Greg, I found this forum by Searching Ask Jeeves, I hadn't yet bought a Goldwing but was wanting one. My Brother (ponymanr) had just bought an 81 1100. Iwas reading the forum and saw a member who was having problems with a Wing, so he was going to get rid of it. I joined to ask him what he would want for it, and 15 min later he marked me as a SPAMMER, I never did understand Why, but OH Well. I got a GL1200A around a month later, and ponymanr joined the forum too, and the rest is History. I am on the computer at least 6 hrs a day, and 80% of that time is right here. We are really Blessed to have this forum, what a bunch of GREAT and knowledgable people. I plan to stay here until my Birth Certificate Expires, Thanks Steve for getting this forum going,,,,, Good Job !!

Actually Beatles are pretty water tight and boyant if I remember correctly. Besides, I doubt you could be too much bigger than me. I'm apretty big feller.

After not having a bike for 15 years, I purchased my 1200 from eBay in September 2006. When it was delivered, I knew I was going to need help "nursing it back to health." Looking for information, I Googled "Goldwing" and here I am! Great people, great info. If you can't find the answers you're looking for here,you are simply asking the wrong questions!

Bought a 500 dollar Goldwing for my son to ride when he is home on furlow, it is a bit worse shape than I thought, not sure I can bring it back or not. Any how from the Andes Mts in South America he found this page and clued me in. I sign on and shortly after he did also. need to learn plastic welding.

Time is the coin of LIFE be careful how you spend it.

I found it by accident. I was in Ireland teaching IT communications course to my counterparts in their national communications company some years ago and I decided to go to the big annual bike show. There was a Goldwing on display for the irish wing club and I asked if they had a website. The girl said yes they had and gave me the link, and she gave me the link to here as well telling me "steves site is much livlier than the club site". She was right, the forum wasn't as big back then but it was very inviting and friendly and I have spent many enjoyable hours and made friends from right here, and I even gotvto meet the wingnut family once.
I know the wingnut is modest and shies away from praise and credit, but I still say he deserves it for creating over the site and forum that has brought so many of us together.
