Road Runner

10 years ago this month (July 2006) several of us rode to Alaska. Friend shot this of us on our 2002 Illusion Blue Wing.



An awesome trip - spent 49 days on the road...! Getting too old to attempt it now!


The wife shot a lot of photos from her seat!

Check odometer - all my miles - turned 90,000 in Alaska.

Stopped by to see Santa at the North Pole... he came out of the Santa house and wanted to see how a Wing felt instead of a sleigh. He immediately jumped on mine...




Mt McKinley near Talkeetna




Mt McKinley a rarely seen mountain as the clouds lift!

Fun trip.

Fantastic photos.  I depart NJ for Alaska on 01 July.  Your photos really heightened my anticipation.

an awesome trip, and great photos of your 2006 trip.


I would like to be able to do that, but at 74 I doubt that I ever again ride long distances away from camp/home.


when the temps reach 85* I am done, I have to find an air conditioner.... so that means leave at day break, and ride until about noon and park the bike, and get under the a/c.


this little incident destroyed my hypothalmus gland, and that ended my body being able to cope with high temps.

About us

The North American Goldwings Forum is a gathering of Goldwing enthusiasts predominately from North American (but we have members from all over the world) who love to share their passion for their Goldwings! We celebrate our diversity, our tenacity for riding experiences, and a common sentiment that the Goldwing has and always will be the pinnacle of the touring motorcycle world.  Our family of Goldwingers have many common interests such as touring, trikes, sidecar rigs, classic models, camping, events, impromptu rides and most of all enjoying and expressing our experiences with our forum family. We laugh when things are funny but are deeply concerned when one of our group is having serious times. While we are first and foremost a social group dedicated to the Goldwing motorcycle, we also have a huge amount of technical information and advice! As said by one of our Senior Members “What a fantastic place to be!”.  Drop by and join the NAGF Family, we don't think you'll be disappointed!!!
