:excited: Just wanted to let ya'll know that Jane and I bought a new Yellow one from our local dealer Champions of Leesburg (1hour+) away. This is the second time I have purchased a Goldwing from them.
I know...everyone says, why did you buy yellow, everybody has one. Well I'll tell you why. I wasn't that crazy about the colour when it 1st came out originally, but after a while it kinda grew on me and then it was unavailable for quite some time, so our 06 was going to run out of waranty in March, so we decided instead of buying the extended waranty we bought a new Yellow one instead!
Dealt with the owner Jerry to make the deal...I came in armed with prices and knew that we were willing to pay a little more for the convinience of buying locally but wasn't prepared to take it up the wazzoo to do so. Was very pleasently suprised to find out that he was very receptive, accomodating and we struck a deal quite quickly and painlessly.:thumbup:

The one thing I noticed on the way home was that the cruise control actually kicks in as it should...right away, no lag time at all....finally.:bow: Bonus!

Thanks for letting me babble here for a few minutes. :p

I'm not used to riding on the stock size tire (normally have riden the 70 series for 4 years), so that is one thing really different is the extra snort on the bottom end. :lol:

It's next week already, WOW! I guess I will be seeing you next week for sure. Now that I have gotten down here from the frozen north, it is such a treat to be able to ride just any day, at any time. :tongue:

Yellow is the next color I will buy when the time comes to move to a newer model. I think the yellow is the best looking and safest color to ride on. Good luck on your new scoot.

Congrats on the new ride...........

The '09 has a lot of little annoying bugs corrected..........you'll notice your speedo is correct also.

Have fun!
My '09 is still in "moth balls" ;)

Hal, congrats on the new bike. My new one has been away for so long that I need to go in my garage every now and then to remind me I have a new Wing. Of course, I am jealous you can ride.:cus::banghead:

Congratulations! I like Yellow.

Another thing I found that has been fixed the 09 is rear suspension pre load. On my 05 it didn't move until the numbers were at 5 or 6. The 09 works perfectly, no need to bleed the system.
