Introduction to Us
with a 1980 GoldWing GL1100 (never named). After 95,000
miles we sold it and bought the 1995 GL1500 (The White Dragon,
147,000 miles) and a TimeOut tent trailer. In 1999 we
bought a CycleMate cargo trailer for our trip to
Mexico. In 2006 we shipped
The White Dragon to Europe for three years. In 2007 we
purchased a matching 1995 GL1500 (The White Bear, 25,000 miles)
because we had no bike to ride while we were home from Europe.
In 2008 we wrecked the White Dragon on a rain slick freeway in
the heel of Italy. In November of 2010 we bought a bright
yellow 2003 GL1800 (Lemonade) with ABS and sold the White Bear.
After we wrecked the
White Dragon in Italy in October of 2008 and ended our
European travels we still had the matching white GL1500 at home
to ride. It is the bike we took to Alaska with Dirk and Hetty (our friends from Holland).
Now we have the yellow GL1800 and Kathy decided to name it
LEMONADE because of the trials we had during our European
adventures. Her motto is "If life deals you lemons, go

During the last 30 years we have toured points from Fairbanks,
Alaska, to Guadalajara, Mexico in North America; and in Europe,
from the Ring of Kerry in Ireland to the shore of the Black Sea
in Bulgaria and from the Sahara Desert in Morocco to Nordkapp,
Norway; always on GoldWings.
The White Dragon was white and
was normally draggin' a small trailer, hence the name "White
Dragon". As you can see from the picture (above) at the
mall show we still tow the CycleMate trailer but now it is
yellow to match the new bike. In 2011 we travelled the
length of Baja to complete our list of areas west of the Great
Plains. In 2013 we bought a Lees-ure Lite tent trailer for
our 2014 tour of the East Coast of the USA.
