Well, as an owner of a HD Crossbones springer, which I love, I decided it was time to add a full on touring motorcycle to the line up. I actually rented a 2008 Goldwing last summer, which was equipped with navigation. I loved the Wing, but hated the navigation unit. I spent three days touring SE Missouri and wound up in Memphis, TN before heading back to Springfield, MO to return the Goldwing. All told, I put 1000 miles on it in three days. After many travels to different dealers, I was able to check out the new navigation set up on the 2012+ G oldwing, which was much, much, better. This spring, I began earnestly considering what motorcycle I would add. Harley Davidson and the 2014 Project Rushmore Ultra Limited, and the 2012 Honda Goldwing were the two contenders in the group for me to choose between. Having rented the Goldwing, all I had to do was try out the 2014 Ultra Limited. After looking at several and taking short test rides on the limited, I determined that if the infotainment system was what would sell the motorcycle the HD would have won hands down. However, the Goldwing won out, and I located a left over 2012 level 3 in Candy Red and Silver in Muskogee, OK, 350 miles from where I live. I called the dealer to make sure it was still there, and went and looked at it the weekend before last. A very nicely discounted price was negotiated to seal the deal. This past Saturday, me and my girlfriend drove back to pick up my new Goldwing, which I rode home in mid 50 degree weather. I can't say anything bad about the New HD motorcycles, but when it comes down to being the "Ultimate Tourer" the Goldwing still holds the edge in my mind. I have only been able to rack up 500 miles thus far, but if the Temp is above 50 I'm on it riding rather than in the Jeep driving. I love it, and a 3000+ mile trip to the east coast is in the works for the first week in June. Look out North Carolina, we are coming your way.
