Hello, all.

New '19 Gold Wing Tour DCT owner, sigining in.

I just picked up the new Wing Saturday, and am looking forward to an enjoyable ownership experience.

A little bit about me.

I'm coming from a '14 BMW R1200RT (loved it, best bike of the many I've owned.)

I test rode back-to-back a '19 BMW R1250RT and new Wing Tour DCT, and the Wing's suspension was noticeably better than the RT's, plus I loved the Wing's almost diesel-like power delivery.

I've owned a Wing in past, a 2007 GL1800, loved it.

Before that, a 2004 BMW R1150RT, loved it.

Before that, a 2003 Homda ST1300A, loved it.

Before that, a 1992 Honda ST1100A, loved it.

Add to that a number of Ducatis, Moto Guzzis and a Montesa trail bike, and that pretty much sums up my 40 plus years of motorcycling.

I'm a short guy, 5'8" with a 30-in inseam. I ride solo 100-percent of the time.

The gang of riders I hang with are mostly longer distance riders; 800-900 km days are common for us. Most of them are BMW RT, GS/GSA riders, with a couple of FJRs and Super Teneres for good measure. My new Wing will make 3 new generation Gold Wings in our group of friends.

We ride rain shine, or, more recently, in snow. The latter, not by choice. :)

That's it.

Looking forward to sharing the wisdom of the folks here.

Cheers.
