Lights & Chrome – Llandudno Goldwing Light Parade

It’s always heart warming to hear about Goldwing outings held across the world, whether it’s a WingDing, local rallies, international parades, or two good friends going for a ride. The Llandudno Goldwing Light Parade is no exception. But it’s also more than just its namesake. To be sure, there will be hundreds of Wings dressed up for the occasion with glimmering, flashing lights and plenty of chrome. Of course it will be a sort of spectacle where proud owners show off their upgraded and customized rides. But the parade is about far more than the lights and chrome.

It is a chance to connect with fellow Wing-Riders and share what we have in common. It is an opportunity to let humanity be humanity: to laugh, to share, to tell stories and learn from our fellow man. With so many options pulling us countless ways at any given moment it’s good to know something as simple as a light parade will allow Goldwing riders to take a break from their daily lives and meet face-to-face and get to know one another a little better. Llandudno may not be the biggest or most well known town – how many of you have heard of it before now? – but it does seem to be an appropriate venue for such a nostalgic enterprise. Dave Crowley, Chairman of the Goldwing Riders and Co, put it this way, “Some towns are more suitable than others for a Gold Wing Light Parade but Llandudno really hits the spot.”

Me and My Wing: A Facebook Photo Contest

Enter now and you could win one of three great prizes: Centramatic Wheel Balancers for GL1800 (1st Runner Up), BikeMP3 Evolution CB Radio for GL1800 (2nd Runner Up), or LST Horizon HeliBars for GL1800 (Grand Prize). 

We love our Goldwings. We meticulously care for them, boast about them to our friends like a proud parent, and ride them every chance that we get. We are all proud to own a Wing.

That’s why WingStuff is excited to present, Me and My Wing: A Facebook Photo Contest, where you have a chance to win some great prizes for showing off your prized possession. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Like us on our Facebook Page. Not already on Facebook? It’s really easy and only takes a few minutes to sign up.

Step 2: Take a picture (or find one you already have) of yourself with your Wing. Feel free to incorporate anything lying around that might improve your odds of winning.

Step 3: Post your amazing photo on YOUR Facebook page, give it a caption, and make sure that you mention WingStuff in the post. For example you might type, “Me with my GL1800 @WingStuff Photo Contest.” 

That last part is important because without the @WingStuff in your post, we won’t be able to track your submission and won’t see your impressive, prize-winning picture.

Example Post:

Once the contest is over, WingStuff will announce the top three winners via Facebook. Winners will be announced in the month of September 2014.

Pretty simple, right? 

Use your imagination and creativity, take your Wing to an interesting location, or feel free to incorporate anything lying around that might improve your odds of winning.

Good luck!
