I picked up my '08 Pearl White this evening. Only got to put about 60 miles on it this evening. I rode it Home from the Dealership. My 8 yr old rode home with me and didn't want to get off of it. He absolutely loves it. Momma had to wait 'till he was finished riding to get her turn.
It seems like a really great bike. It handles more like a sport bike than I had ever imagined. I've had a Nighthawk, Magna, and CBR. This bike handles more like the CBR than any of the others. I can't wait to get a chance to put some miles on it. My son has a couple of motocross races this weekend, so this weekend is out. I may get a chance to get a few miles in Wednesday and/or Thursday. I'll be lurking around here trying to learn the in's and out's of the Honda Goldwing!

Welcome to the party! Great color choice. Pay attention to the cagers that move out of your way because they think you're a LEO! It's amazing!

:congrats:

Congratulations!!! You will enjoy this marvelous machine. I recently traded my silver '02 in on an '08 pearl white abs and there is no comparison. Not only is the performance fantastic, but having the best color is the frosting on the cake. Be careful because the farkles are most tempting. Direct Line, Shinhopples, wing stuff..........TEMPTING!!

Best of luck! :congrats:

Have fun breaking it in! Just don't tear it down for mods until you have at least 1000 miles on it!

Congrats! Also, if you're new to riding a Wing, keep and eye on the wife and that youngster; they'll tend to fall asleep easily on most any ride over 20 miles or so.
