Hi there everyone! This is my new to me Gold-wing. This is my third motorcycle, my first was a Kawasaki 1991 ex500 I miss her dearly. My second is a 2003 Honda shadow 750 deluxe, she is my daily rider. I live in southwest Florida so all that I have is a motorcycle,(now 2) rain or shine that is all the I need. The gold wing was a huge step up from either of the latter.
I bought it for a better riding with the wife. I always wanted a Gold-wing found this one for sale and just had to get it.
Compared to the other motorcycles that I have had she is really heavy,(like the beetles song) I can control the corners better than the shadow. I think some of it is the bars on the shadow.
It was dark sided and that took a bit to get use to. I have been on the shadow for 3 years so it was a change. But it is a very nice ride.

I hope to get to know some of you that live close. I know there is a riders group in Fort Lauderdale so if there is anyone out there just say yoooo.

Welcome from Los Angeles! I lived--and rode--in Tallahassee for 10 years. I'll never forget my first encounter with a swarm of lovebugs. I was digging lovebug guts out of cracks and crevices for months.

Welcome from Clearwater. I’m still dreaming of the day I can own a Wing!

FacePlant has a Florida Prowlers group. They have gatherings on a regular basis.

Enjoy the new scoot....

Welcome to the forum. My wing looks a lot like yours. Black with some chrome accessories.
I agree with you and the Beatles, She’s So Heavy”.

Welcome from Melbourne, FL. Beautiful bike! However as a 2001 has evidence been presented to you that all the recalls have been performed? A brake recall and a frame recall both come to mind.
