Hi I have just joined this Goldwing owners club without guessing that it was an American club, but so what we are all goldwing owners so what does it matter where you live. I hope all you lot out there feel the same, and if I ever get over there well I should have a few friends to meet and likewise if you ever come to Scotland you will have a friend here. So lets talk Goldwing

Welcome, Lawrence from Texas.

My wife and I are traveling to your beautiful country in September for a holiday, and my youngest daughter is currently in Edinburgh photographing a wedding.

We'd love to have the chance to meet you!

Hi thanks to you all for the great friendly replies, Willmax hope we can meet up in september,Hope your lassie is enjoying auld reekie (Edinburgh) . I used to ride a Pan european until an accident at work four year ago made one of my legs not as good as it was so I had to sell the Pan. I was going to buy a canam spyder tryke but its not the same as riding a bike, so I have bought a Goldwing GL1800 2011 model and due to the weather have only managed fourteen miles to date. So it is still in its brand new look with a total recorded mileage of fourteen and a half miles, due to my gammy leg I have had to have push button gears and a stabilizer system that I imported from America, called legup. Its bad enough trying to get used to a new bike but it is even harder when you have all these extra buttons on your left hand to control the leg up,gears,indicators and the clutch. But having said that I am back on the road again. Regards to all Lawrance

Welcome from Ontario Canada. I also plan to visit Scotland again. It would be awsome to be able to tour by wing with someone who knows the area. Glad to share my favourite rides here.
All the best.

Welcome Lawrence from Central Washington State. Hope to visit Scotland one day since most of my genealogy got back there with the Clan MacIntosh, Gunn, and Stuart, and my wife is a Ross. These folks migrated here in the late 1600s, early 1700s.
enjoy your new Wing.

Hi Lawrance,

I'm thinking of having the Ladingear LegUp system fitted to my GL1800 and wondered how you've gone on with yours? Do you find it good? Any problems?

Regards,

Eldroth.

Hi I personally like the system, it has flaws like if you corner to fast and low the wheels hit the ground lifting the rear wheel away from the road, So I slow down and enjoy the scenery more or if you set it to come on when you slow down as the wheels lower you start to veer to the left, just like driving with a sidecar so you just compensate.
What it boils down to is personal preference and I like it.
If you decide to go ahead with it keep in touch or if you dont still keep intouch.
I am in a club called the Missfits and they have a space at the NEC bike show at Birmingham, I am hoping to go down for a wander are you going. Regards Lawrance
