I recently came across an article online that highlighted 70 year young Wing Rider who has tallied over 500,000 miles and visited 49 states most recently on his 1996 GL1500 SE. It got me to wondering, how many miles to Goldwing riders, on average, rack up on one bike before they opt for another model. And how many states do these same “Goldwingers” visit during the life of their beloved Wing. Typically, in my conversation with other riders I’ve learned that 48 states is the max, with Alaska and Hawaii being the two exceptions. However, Chuck Blumhardt from Aberdeen, South Dakota, traversed up to Alaska back in 1988. What a feat and inspiration to get out there and ride!
