After many weeks of work, I have finally put online the new vendor database system that I have created:

GoldwingDocs Vendor Database

This is a large database of vendors that sell new and used Goldwings, Goldwing-related parts, accessories, and services. Basically anyone in the world that is in business and has something to do with Goldwings. Included in the database is every dealership in the US that sells new Hondas - over 800 of them. So if you are broken down somewhere and need to know the closest Honda dealership, this database will tell you exactly that.

I have purposely made this database "open" - the data within it can be updated and added to by anyone. If you know of a Goldwing vendor that is not already in the database, I would encourage you to add them in, to help anyone else who might be looking for a vendor.

Most importantly however, is the rating system. Anyone can rate any vendor under 5 categories:

Customer Service
Prices
Selection
Quality
Shipping

As well, anyone can write comments about the vendor - good experiences, bad experiences, whatever. This data can be searched on by anyone else, and eventually should create a fairly good profile of which vendors (or dealers!) are great, and which should be avoided.

Searching is quite flexible. I would encourage you to visit the database and give it a try to see just how easy to use and useful it is. If you know of a vendor that is not in the database already, please add it in! And most of all, if you have had experiences with a vendor, good or bad, I would ask that you take a few seconds and rate that vendor. The more people contribute, the better a resource it becomes for everyone.

Lastly...this database and the engine behind it involves a fairly large amount of code. It has taken me over a month in my spare time to write. As such, there are bound to be a few bugs here and there that I haven't caught. If something doesn't seem right, or if it gives you an error at some point - please let me know about it! And of course, if you have suggestions, please let me know - if they're good (and possible), I'll likely implement them!

What a job you have done. I hope that it gets a lot of use and data input from users around the world.

I've known of a few other attempts, but no one that I am aware of carried it through to the degree of perfection that you have.

Kudos.
