I know, we're all brothers on wheels... :D

Seriously, I'm new here having bought my first Wing three weeks ago. My brother in NH (Wicked), bought his last weekend.

He used to live in FL so we have ridden together plenty in the past; just never on exactly the same motorcycle...


So my question is: are there any other "Wing Brothers" out there and are you fortunate enough to live in the same area?


Stay safe,


Lance

Close.... my brother has a BMW 1200GS but his wife just got an 06 GL1800. He lives in Washington, I live in CA. We get together for rides as often as the Washington weather permits. He now has two wingmen on Wings.

I thought you meant African American Goldwing owners; I had noticed that their demographic is seriously under-represented in the Goldwing community.

My brother is a boat guy and has a Sea Ray.

My Brother and I got our identical Wings (02 IB) at the same shop in August '02. It was really fun. We'd waited for a couple of months, and when we went in they were sitting side by side, by far the most striking sight in the shop.

We checked them out, then went for a long ride while the ladies took care of the payment and paperwork.

His burned up in a garage fire last year, so he now has an 05 blue.
He lives in Anoka, Minnesota, and I live in Milton, WI, so we only get together a couple of times a year. We always go to the races at Road America in June.

Lil Bro

I got a brother in FL that bought a Wing a few weeks ago, oh, its you.

Just got back from an after work jaunt on the Wing. Man O Man does this thing corner. It feels like you have to pull the bike out of the turn. The Wing wants to dig into the turn. Wow!!! I like the way the Navi changes the view at dusk too.

My brother has an '01 Illusion Red, and lives about 5 miles from me. I just got an '03 Black, after being without for a few months (without a wing, that is).
Of course, since both of us have kids and at least one job each, actually getting to ride together isn't easy...

I've got an 'o3 Yellow wing, (which is the fastest color), and my brother has a '05 CBCherry wing. We live about 10 miles from each other. We ride together at least once a month.

Hey Bro!

My brother and I are twins. Last year we walked in the Honda dealer and bought two 2005 Goldwings. The Honda dealer referred to the sale as the "Honda Goldwing Doubleshot". Everytime we go into the dealership they always remember us! Anyway, I go the dark cherry and my brother Dan got the bright yellow.

Wish I had a brother. My sister is thinking of buying my sons VStar 650 though.

My brother does too and yes, I still like him but it's funny, he's never offered to let me ride his sportster. I think it had something to do with right after he put this huge Harley Wing decal on his Pickups back window and I said "What are you trying to do, make your Ford leak oil too?"

He failed to see the humor in that..... I think it really ticked him off when soon after, the engine blew up and he traded it off. I busted his chops about not putting another Harley sticker on his new truck. There were a few discouraging words, but it's funny, that truck is still around 5 years later.......

My brother has an ElectraGlide with more than twice invested in it than my last two wings cost to purchase, maintain and bling, I moved 5500 miles away because I could not stand the noise. :twisted:

My Brother-in Law restores Harleys as a living, has at least half a dozen at a time in his garage. Last time I visited him for a party I had to borrow a Harley from my brother to keep my own ride safe.

You'd never think that owning a wing would make one the black sheep in the family ...
