Just thought I'd let you know I just joined, having just bought my first GL500. It's an '82, Honda fairing and bags. I'm located outside Springfield,MO. I see where you are 60miles east of KC. Warrensburg? Got a brother there, Interior Decorator for the B-2 bomber base.

We have a riding group in this area that I am very active with. GL1000s are my usual ride. Hopefully I will be able to attend the M-West meeting of nakedgoldwingsclub in Ark this June. In May, Branson has their annual Bike Week. Might think about having a get together there, if not a group ride to somewhere. Far-flung riders get their "ride", in just getting somewhere. A meeting, like in Branson, gives time to visit.

If in my area, give me a PM and I more than likely will be home to meet and greet you. I'm retired and have a bike shop at home. MIKE

Hey, I live in Rolla, MO. About a couple of hours from Springfield or Columbia. I have a CX650, currently a restoration that's ongoing. I'd love to meet some other CX riders!









I dedicated this restoration to my late grandfather who passed last November. The following picture is his car he used to race with in Black hawk Farms, Illinois.

Hey Rickbert, I just ran across this post tonight. It would be good to have a meet up in Missouri. I have been working out of town this past year, so when I do get back home, I haven't had much time to ride. Since I will be watching this thread, if you post up a date and location, I will see if I can make it. Probably when it's cooler, right




And to MissouriMike and MalcomBliss, welcome to the forum! Hope to see all of you sometime!

Manhattan, KS here... Keep the thread going and I'd love to ride somewhere!


No KSU fans allowed Ramsey !




Teasing....yeah we NEED to do something, but yes once it cools just a tad...it's really not much fun in THIS kind of heat we're having now. I go for a ride in the mornings but that's pretty much it...once it gets over 90 degrees it gets annoying.

Rick,



Not sure if I could make it this Saturday. I have a HUGE amount of "To Do's" this week before I fly out on Sunday evening to go back on the road for work. Next time I am back in state looks to be over the Labor Day weekend. You all go ahead with out me, but post the details....just in case I could sneek out for a quick ride!

Tomorrow SATURDAY OCTOBER 1 looks like a real nice day for a wrenching/riding day.



I have NO plans.



HINT HINT to anyone nearby.




Hey that sounds great Rick! I would love to ride on 10/1!






















Oh wait...



I read this just now, and yes, I did ride today.
I took a run up to Kirksville to see my daughter at school. I am in town for the weekend, so I made a quick 400 mile round trip. Rode on some incredible routes north of I-70 and east of Hwy 63. Mostly county roads and state roads. Longest US highway portion was 61, southbound from Palmyra to Chesterfield.



Just got back home about 3 hours ago. Bit chilly once the sun set. Good thing I had plenty of warm clothing, including a balaclava.




I will dig out the camera later and post a few pics that I took.



Wife was concerned that I was riding the bike today, despite all the "issues" I have had in the past. Well, she ran FLAWLESSLY today.

Yep, oh well, I went for a nice long ride today myself as well.....a bit of everything from Interstate to 4 lane US Highway (US 65) to rural 2 lane county/state highways.



Mine ran great as well.....although after reading the thread about the main fuse in the tech help section even though mine runs great I think I'll modernize my fuse as well !

Newbie. Had this CX650 Custom for under a month.



I took it for a run around Wyandotte County Lake this weeken, just a few miles from my home. I think the bike enjoyed it just as much, if not more, than I did.

Hey, I'm in MO now but I'm an Original Dotte. I didn't even think about WY lake. I bet that would be, a nice ride. I was just in Linwood, KS, rode along K-32 to see Vandergriff's bike collection. Take a look and maybe I'll see some of you's on the road.

P.S. My CX is the black one in the middle of the first pic.

Kansas is a state that I really want to go and visit more of. I got a buddy that lives in Soloman and he is a native. He knows where a lot of the good stuff is in that state. My only impression of the state is based on driving back and forth on I-70 in a cage.

I would love to meet y'all sometime in the next month or two. I am going to be stationed at Whiteman AFB sometime soon-ish [I have no idea, they haven't told me anything]... Anyways, I'm originally from KC but I live in Cincinnati currently, I'm planning on going to a Royals game sometime soon. Let's try and set something up!
