    Sorry to learn about your get off Donnie. Glad you are able to type and tell us about it. I don't know how you can miss a yellow Glodwing. Amazing. Get well soon. I think you have better luck in Mexico, either that or the Beemer doesn't like to be left alone at home.:rofl

    Donnie and Sheryl, glad you two are alright. Hope you get the Goldwing fixed so you can ride it on more long trips.
    I hate to read about accidents where a car was the problem..

    Hi William!

    I am pretty much recovered, but Sheryl is still having some issues. The bike would have already been ready, but a few screws and bolts had to be ordered. I have been riding for a while, Sheryl will probably be back on the road in a few weeks.

    I did get a "new to me" 2007 KTM 990 Adventure to help ease the pain! :rofl

    Glad to hear both you and Sheryl are alright. You gonna be alright for the Alaska ride? I'm still gonna try and meet you for coffee somewhere out west. The snow has finally melted around here and I got the Wing out for a 100 mile coffee run a couple days ago before I changed the oil. Man did it feel awesome.
    Woke up this morning to a couple inches of snow on the ground :eek2:mad?? I guess its winters final going away present for riders in Winnipeg. Hopefully Sheryl will be better real soon. All the best and dont forget to PM me when you start your ride north.
