Hey Hobie1 :waving: I wouldn't like to be riding my Honda 50 in your town. :crying:Hmm. I also quit the GWRRA last night and I have no regrets. After riding my old Wing(83I) around my town and seeing new 1800 Wing owners, waving to them, and have every single one of them look at me with barely a nod, I think I belong to a different group of folks.
I really like the people on Mr. Saunders BBS.
Hey BartRodgers :waving: Welcome to the greatest Goldwing forum on the net. :clapper:This is a fantastic forum site. I quit the GWRRA and can no longer post there.
It is funny you say that, I tell the guys at work the exact same thing. This site is great!Glad you found us, hard to believe so many folks from all over the world can get along just by talking about a GOLDWING...... :clapper: :gunhead:
Bigeesteve,I don't know if being 36 would count as a mid life crisis, but I bought a goldwing as my 1st bike almost 2 years ago. I wanted a big bike because I am a big guy, I also understood that it was a very large powerful machine and took my time learning to ride it, maybe I was just lucky I did not kill myself.
As far as the biker wave or "salute", I live in a town with aVERY large motorcycle population and most of the time I should just ride with one arm in the air, or maybe screw a mannequin arm to the side of my bike.
LOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!! I just fell off my chair laughing and La Reina Del Todod Mundo came in to check on me!!!screw a manequin arm to the side of my bike
