Well it was a nice day yesterday. I really needed to mow the lawn (smallest dog almost got lost, luckly the tail showed where she was!) but decided to take the wing out for a ride. Couldn't 'go' far because of being on call for the hospital, but got in about 75 miles.

Saturday going to Carrollton, Ga (about 3hrs aways) and back, so it'll be fun to do that trip.

I tell ya I feel like I am riding a leather recliner down the road!

Have a good one!
Kevin

Congrats on your pruchase and discovery of the wonderful world of wingin'. It is incredibly addictive in the most wonderful sort of way!

My son calls them "Couch Rockets".

But, you should have gotten an ORANGE one.... ;)

How's that cruise control?

Did you try the "reverse" yet?

Lets see, yard work, riding the wing, hmmmm,, my brain processes that choice in a bout a half of a nano-second. That's why I never win any awards for the best looking lawn:shrug:

The VTX was an Orange one. I prefer FSU or USF or TN...LOL

Haven't tried the Cruise control yet, but planning to saturday.

Reverse is awsome!! I wasn't sure if I would like it but it a cool feature.

Thanks,
KevTN

You probably have the Lawn Mower Blade Sett to High.
Better check it.
Didn't your Mother tell you to go outside and play and ride your Bike?
Enjoy it. It only gets better.

You can always put a flag on the tail of the pooch and go a few more weeks without cutting. Enjoy that wing!

Every nice day that comes around I have a list of "chores" that need doing. Have to walk past the bikes to start any of them and it seems that's about as far as I get and the chores are left waiting. Tell the wife I can always cut the grass tomorrow but the Wing hasn't been out in 3 days (was riding the other bikes) and it's not good for it to sit up so long. Have to take a "maintenance" ride.

A little boastful

I'm an extremely fortunate man. While you might be debating cutting the grass versus riding your Goldwing, hear this. My wife insisted I get rid of the tractor and hire someone to cut the grass as a condition to her approving the purchase!

Dear Lord, thank you for granting me such a woman!


Amen

Before you ask; yes, she has a sister, but the sister is looney.

Whew, I thought it was only me. Losing sleep is one thing but have you ever spent the nighr propped up on a lawn chair in your garage and cracked a 6 pack just so you could look at your new toy? If yes, you may be my long lost brother.
That feeling doesn't go away BTW! ;) Have fun and enjoy.
