A lot of them won't ride in :
1. Heat
2. chance of rain
3. Sun too bright
4. too many bugs.
5. all the above

I try and stay away from cities, sticking to the back roads and small towns.
I rode down to West Palm Beach for Beverly's memorial service and only saw 2 GWs in 350miles.

I have a question, why is it that people always compare ther goldwing to Harleys, HD makes lot of models, yet it is always Harley, Goldwing is one of the models of the Honda motorcycle. Now lets compare the Goldwing to the number of Electriglide's or Harleys top of the line tourer as Harley see it.

Pretty much it. Goldwings are a miniscule market compared to others. As much as we like them they are but one Honda, and an expensive, big, heavy, missunderstood one at that.

Enjoy your ride.

I suspect that a lot of wingers are not interested in the "lifestyle" happening that is Daytona. Wingers also generally don't cruise up and down roads as a raison d'etre. Some probaly don't go because of the crowds, the loud pipes, etc. People that are into that stuff generally buy harleys and crotch rockets.
