Just a quick intro to the Goldwing community. This is my first Wing (2001). Always wanted one but never had the room for a bike this big. I have been riding many moons (whole life) on many different machines, motocross, road race track and just basic commuter street stuff. I am really enjoying the soft ride of the Wing. Bought it for a more comfortable commute to work (40 miles ). Not far but early morning, late evening etc. Good to meet you fellas.
