Hello all,

I just found this site and joined right away.

I purchased my first Gold Wing in 1979 and put around 33K miles on it until I totaled it in 1983. My first big ride was 6 weeks from coast to coast covering 13K miles (yes, 13,000 miles). What can I say, I was 22 years old, just graduated, was about to start working and knew I wouldn't have a chance like this ever again. I still look back amazed I did that.

After the wreck, I got married, had kids and didn't have a bike until my wife surprised me with a new 2007 Gold Wing for my 50th. No, she doesn't have any available sistes.

I've had it for over 2 years and only recently started taking long trips with my son (13). Last August we rode for 4 days and covered over 1.6K miles! We had a great time riding up to the pan handle, into New Mexico (have you been on the Enchanted Circle?!?) and back through western Oklahoma.

I'm looking forward to riding through Oklahoma to Arkansas this weekend and hoping there are a few leaves left!

Let me know how you are doing!

Ken
