Yesterday we Picked our new to us 2001 GL1800 from the last owner in Springville,TN. We staied the night in Nashville in order to ride to SMRI III the next day with Wimpyhonda. Loading the bike today I saw few drops of oil under the bike. The honda dealer of coolspring explained to me that the drishaft has almost no oil and when he draihed the oil it as fuul with metal. He also said that he can not help me since he have not replacment nor time to do it. Well "here goes my vacation" I figured, "coming all the way from Israel and left without a wing".
I called Lowel [Wimpyhonda], whom We plained to ride with to Bryson City for SMRI to explain the new situatiation.You can understand my soprise when he said: " come over to my house, I will fix this for you". Now, I had never met Lowel yet, I did not new that he is sertified honda mechanic. All I new was that this guy is going to save my vacation. Thank you Lowel, I will never forget you kindness and your good will to help a guy that you never met. You did an excelent and profecional job and did not want any payment for the work.
I made this video after a long day and erquest everyone forgivnece for my english and video's qoality]. [

Ahhhhhhh....with some of the posts on this board lately, the personal attacks and general aggressive nonsense, I was thinking it was time to go...

Thanks for sharing your story and reaffirming that the majority here are great people

Good For You Wimp

Dan, Wimpy is truly on of the "Good Guys". He has helped me out numerous times. I hope you were able to understand his Red Neck lingo. LOL He called me last night to get me to ride with you guys today but I had a prior commitment I couldn't reschedule. I hope to get to meet and greet you before you have to leave. Hope you guys have a great ride today even if the weather isn't looking to good.

Wimpy, You go Boy! When I grow up, I would like to be just like you.

Dan, Your English is fine, but the Gal singing that song, could use a little fine tuning....LOL

Always good to hear a good story, especially where we help our own, our neighbors! And yes Dan, You and your lovely Lady are our Neighbors.

Now who wants to fight?....LOL

What a great guy this WimpyHonda dude is! I hope his good deeds come back to him one day in multiples. I think it great that we have a visitor from Israel here riding a Goldwing! I wonder if the person that sold you the bike knew it had this problem...if so...shame on him!
