Today was the kick off for Wing Ding 30- Jan and I spent the biggest part of our day taking a Trike Safety Course- today was classroom, and tomorrow morning will be out on the course. We did get a chance to wander around the vendors area a bit, and quickly discovered it would be really easy to spend thousands of dollars on accessories for your motorcycle. I’ve decided if it’s a part that can be put on a GoldWing- you can find it in chrome.

You can even buy a 4-wheeled GoldWing- How awesome is that?

And if you so desired.. you could buy a snazzy sidecar.

While we were there, we met up with our good buddy Ken- he was getting a Tow-Pac installed on his 1990 GoldWing 1500- It’s a kit that adds 2 additional wheels to the back of the bike for stability. It’s really a pretty neat concept.

Tonight was the first time Linda rode on the GoldWing. I think she had a great time. Every time we stopped she had a big smile on her face!

Greenville, SC is the host of Wing Ding 30. It’s the National GWRRA (GoldWing Road Riders Association) Rally and we are expecting up to 20,000 motorcycles over the weekend. Tomorrow is the official kick off- but today was a registration day- and there are already a bunch of riders in town. It was awesome to see so many bikes. We were both shocked at the number of trikes. This is our first Wing Ding and we are both excited. We have a lot planned for the next few days- We’re gonna take a Trike Safety Course tomorrow and Friday- there are also parades and vendors galore.
