Again, thanks for all the kind words. Since I don't "know" you yellow wolf, difficult to "read between" anything.
I LOVE the Wing and would really like to have one... but as Mr Eastwood said, "a man's gotta know his limitations".
Weight, I've found, is mine. I think I'm doing real well after having suffered a seven month convalesence from the bike wreck I had in 04. Never thought I'd ride two wheels again, and voila', here I am.
As for rides... I'll ride with most anyone, and the longer the ride the better. I don't mind duct taping my clothes to the saddle for a long jaunt.
