Does planning to do something count? I'm planning to craft covers for the top of the air shocks on the trike. They rise about 3" above the body and keep me from mounting the trunk. I need the trunk to mount the license plate light.

I have been busy taking care of family and then my right knee gave out. Frustrating! My poor slug has been sitting out under cover in the weather for a few months now not getting ridden. Temps were 20 degrees yesterday so I thought I had better check the antifreeze and battery charge. Out of curiosity, I pulled the choke and hit the starter and she fired right up! :yahoo:

I couldn't do much more than let her run til warmed up and listen. What a great sound on a beautiful, cold winter day!

Well mine isn't a Wing but it is a GL1500. After new years, I will be changing all the carb springs from CT to IS, that will give me a bit more throttle kick. I did take the bike apart this winter and now its being put back together.

Hmmm ... Speaking of which, I have some work to do this weekend on my not-a-Goldwing GL1500. I'm going to add some supplemental lighting out back. Will report.

What you can do like I did is, get front flashers and install in the back that way you park and flasher . I did paint the yellow lens with clear red model lacquer.

Where's The snow? -24 deg C and having the bike out in the snow with the sun shining is always good. Thought I'd complement your picture with mine.

Not to, but on. Plans are to ride the GL1800 to Cumberland Falls Dupont Lodge for lunch on New Year's Day. I'm not all that tough - heated gloves and jacket liner make it comfy. ~80 miles one-way on some great roads!

Pulling the trailer hitch off the 84 donor, shining it up and installing it on the 86 Aspencade.

Brrrr, it's cold out there, so I wheeled the donor into the garage and set the temp for 55. :builder:

Well, we ALMOST made it to Dupont Lodge for New Year's lunch. Lafollette to Jellico on 25W was an experience that I'd just as soon not repeat. Had to adjust my line quite often to stay on clear road in tire tracks. When we got to Jellico, decided it best to jump in I-75 - which we did up to the 25W Williamsburg exit. 25W there was just too slick, however (I spun and fishtailed a little getting on it from the ramp, and was being REAL easy on the throttle) - and I knew that KY 90 through the park would be worse, so we turned back down I-75. Stopped at the TN63 Carryville exit to warm our toes and drink some coffee. Charlie (on the Can Am) headed on home via US 441 and I headed down 25W to my home when we left the slab in Rocky Top. High temp seen was 21 near home, with most of Jellico mountain showing - - on the GoldWing's temp display (that's Honda indication of You Fool! below 14 F). Lite snow from Lafollette North was NOT forecast or even mentioned on the morning news.

Anyway, had the New Year's ride (around 200 miles total) even though we missed the lunch @ Dupont Lodge. Kept the shinny side up!
