We are Bob and Kathy Eggett and we are based in beautiful Southwestern Washington, USA.

These are pages of our adventures riding GoldWing motorcycles in North America, Europe and a small piece of Africa.  They are intended to keep our relatives and friends updated with the progress of our travels and will be updated at irregular intervals with our adventures.

Follow along on our adventures by using the links at the top and side of the pages.  New pages will be announced on this page as well as being in the menu system.  Direct links to each of the 100 European travel pages are down below.

New Pages for 2014

During this East Coast tour many people have asked us about our trailer.  So I have decided to list the information and pictures on its own page.

Introduction to Us

We started 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 ride Lemonade".

We have traveled over all of North America west of the Great Plains and the Black Hills of South Dakota where we attended the Sturgis Rally.  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.

Viewers interested in the European tour should probably start with the Planning page and go on to Plan B and Plan C and Plan D and Plan E,  this will explain what happened to our plans.  After that one can explore the Europe and N. America (including Alaska) pages.  The story of our burned house is on the Fire! page in the About Us section.

Under the Links, Quotes, Fun page there are some pages of interesting quotes on travel, retirement, motorcycles, beer and a Fun & Games page that have been gathered from a variety of sources.
