GoldWingFacts Index bookmarks
Index Date: 2018/04/01
The Index is something I do on a daily basis as I see
a post or a thread that needs to be included.
a sob story, some of the links are now broken. This happens for a lot of reasons, all of them out of my control. Most of them though, are still working. I edit them as I find the broken ones.
My bookmarking system is based on the hierarchical system like the military uses.
Most of the bookmarks have been alphabetized.
here is an example of how they appear if you select the GL1000
Import instructions in this post are for Internet Explorer.

To do this, download this HTML file:
All browsers including Firefox use the same HTML file to IMPORT bookmarks.
You MUST be patient when importing this file into your browser. It takes MINUTES!!! for my computer it takes six (6) minutes for it to fully import into the browsers. There are more than 5,000 entries in this Forum Index and that is a lot of overhead to try and import all at once.
Please be patient, start the import and go do something else. If you stop the process, you will have a broken index.... do not close the browser for at least 15 minutes or more.... you cannot see what is happening unless you are using a Task Manager to observe the browser's activities.
If you appreciate the bookmark Index, I would appreciate a post in this
thread so others will know how it works for you. Thanks, John
First download the HTML file from the link below.
Please! Please! report to me if this link expires.
I set it to be non-expiring, but sometimes it expires anyway.
INTERNET EXPLORER INSTRUCTIONS
Click on File, select Import and Export
A menu will pop up like below…
Now select Import from a file
On the next menu, select Favorites Only
Now find the Index file and click on it
Now you need to Select the Destination Folder.
I suggest that you make it at the TOP LEVEL so that the
Favorites bar will show Motorcycle
as a subset of the main Favorites menu.
Now click on Import and wait wait wait
until the import finishes.
This could be a lot of minutes depending on how fast your computer is.
Even with a 2.5 gHz laptop, it took a whole lot longer than I thought it would, 6 minutes!!!
One thing that you can do to preview the index.
Click on the index.html file with your Windows File folder.
It will open in your default browser as a Flat File.
It is very usable that way too, but excruciatingly hard to find what you want.
Hope it all goes well for you,
If you need help, let me know.
