There is NO bad. However your penalty is that you must ride to BOTH Glacier National Parks and take photos showing your Goldwing there and post it here! Alas the border is closed till the end of July but we will be ardently following up with you to make this happen! LOL!
If you can still do the Going to the Sun road I’d do it. I know the east entrance is still closed but you want to go west to east first anyways. All the pull offs are on the right side so you can stop and take pictures and enjoy the view. The drop offs on the right at places are breathtaking! Then once you get to the eastern side just do a turn around at the last stop there before leaving the park. Then you can just drive straight on back west and enjoy the view from a different angle and not worry about stopping. On our east to west trip it was so steep and stop and go traffic our wing started to overheat. Had to stop at a pull off and just watch the view for awhile till she cooled. It is beautiful there. Enjoy your trip.
I found this to be one of the more annoying rides of the national parks. One road,going to the sun,aside from the construction for several miles,this was 4 years ago,the road is just jammed with rv's. Several times while climbing the mountain on the east side,I had to pull over because the bike was about to overheat because of the slow moving traffic
Hello fellow wingers. In a few days a friend and I will be riding up through Lolo pass and figured being so close to Glacier Park we would be real knuckle heads to not go thru the park. I am curious as to which is the better direction to go thru. Apgar to St Marys or from St Marys to Apgar. Does not matter or do both ways? We will have 9 days to have fun so any advice would be great. We will be tent camping with no reservations anywhere. Are camping spots going to be hard to find? Thanks in advance for all the info.
I would start from the west side and the last time I was there a bear killed two campers in their tent. You diffently want to check out Logan's Pass but wherever you go you should make reservations especially now with the Corona virus epidemic.
Well, we got back from our ride. Lolo Pass was a good time as well as chief joseph hwy. Stay away from GNP! It is only open from the west side and only to the end of the lake. Massive amounts of people still going in and from what I could see bumper to bumper traffic going in and out. No social distancing and very few masks being worn. The Idaho mountains were a good time as they always are. Got rained on a bit every day but 3. It still was a great get away.
I've been riding more of my life than not. Never took a formal training class but have read articles over the years and watched a few videos of technique. I've also learned from mistakes (some pretty egregious) and gotten to be a reasonably proficient rider but am old enough to know that I'm...
This is my first wing after owning many other bikes in the past. Have had it a little over a month now and have put about 3000 miles on it. I always liked the stock windshield but had nothing to compare it to. Well got a madstad based on reviews along with the Baker wings and WOW what a...
I am 83 years old and have been riding for over 65 years, still riding a 2005 Gold Wing 2 wheeler with 110,000 miles. I am going to have my knees replaced the first of next year and was wandering if any of the members have done this and still riding 2 wheels. I do not want to trike my bike. I...
I thought I would just post up the Sturgis webcams for all us riders not attending this years rally.
It can be fun to check in from time to time when your bored. The rally starts in 5 days.
I have the dual 20S headsets. One unit beeps intermittently even when it is charged (red light is flashing 4 times when powering up indicating 70-100%).
I have tried the factory reset twice and the fault reset twice but it still won't stop beeping. Anyone experience this or have any ideas how...
