What a great trip love the blog, what are you going for after selling the wing ?

I am going to test ride the new BMW GTL 1600 and the new 2012 Goldwing. I am leaning toward a new 2012 Wing just because I am comfortable with the reliability. Not crazy about the 2012 styling though.

They say the 2012 is lot different when you see it in person we will not get to see them for some time as I think there is a backlog of 2010 2011 in this country

Good luck which ever way you go

Here in Australia we are always 1 year behind you guys bike manufactured in 2010 sells here as a 2011 sorry to confuse you. So what I meant was 2009 and 2010 stock still have not sold I believe there are about 250 gold wings to be sold before the new version will come to Australia and in a market like us we will not see the new model until 2013, so then then sell them as 2013

Hope that makes sence

So, is there an International [Model] Year Line, too? :joke:

(Hey. In case there's a question, one of the big regrets I had from my teen years was coming in **2nd** for living overseas as an exchange student for one school year, with a family in Australia)

Johng,
Spent 9 months in your city, what a nice city. I loved those meals at lambs on Lygon street.

IL saw the 2012 in person, If I could I would buy one. The pictures do not do any justice to the 2012.
Did you see the glove box. Gotta really love the way that works. Engine off, handle bars straight, key in glove box lock and twist, open glove box towards you just to have it fall into your lap. Did you get the towards you part .... not away from you!!! Carefull not to scratch the paint as the cover falls off. They should have put a sticker across the top "not intended to be used."
