The wife and I rode in a charity ride for Muscular Dystrophy over the weekend. We rode out for the ride at 8 back at the Harley dealership by 10 and stayed around till almost noon. Ad in paper stated all bikes welcome. I was the only Goldwing in site. It seemed a little funny that with all the Goldwings in central Illinois that nobody else was there. Saw a few sportbikes and several metric cruisers. Even a couple of BMW'S But only one lonely Goldwing. Still had a great ride for a good cause. It was a little entertaining that the ride was about 60 miles and 5 check points to pick up a little prise. At the first stop, about 20 miles into the ride they pulled in and started getting off the bikes. After a little razzing about that they stayed on the bikes the rest of the ride. A good time was had by all.
