    New Goldwing Day!

    I finally pulled the trigger yesterday after months of contemplation.

    I'd like to tell you more, but I have to get back to work... I gotta make some money.

    Happy new Honda day. But you know you really wanted a Guzzi.

    Yeah, that’s what I thought this thread was going to be about... I’m highly disappointed.

    My grandpa rode a Gold Wing... Just sayin’.

    Heheh... Just kidding. Gold Wings are awesome! Congrats! It’s a beauty!

    Well, I've ridden bikes of all kinds all over the place. For my last real long trip, I took my '06 Honda VTX 1300 from up here in the Great White North to San Antonio, TX (in 44 hours, I might add) and back... that'll make an old man out of anyone. The VTX is not Significant Other Approved either... it beats the life out of her riding back there.

    Flat six, automatic transmission, cruise control, music, and maybe even a shoulder massage while I ride? You can tease this old man all you like!

    It's not like I'm driving around in a Corvette! :smile:

    I used to ride a Gold Wing, but it was the original GL1000...

    Nice. I had an 81 Silverwing back in the day. Like this one.

    Loved the SilverWing! This thread makes me wish I had not gotten too old to be riding bikes!
    I doubt I could ride one today without "training wheels."

    Congrats; that's a beaut. I ride a red and black Honda but a little smaller. Rebel 500.

    I love the new model. Slimmed it down and made it sleeker. Looking forward to hearing how you like it.

    I would include real life pics, boys, but it hasn’t happened yet! I won’t get it until Monday at least.

    Those Rebels are great bikes... super easy to ride and control, and very nearly perfect ergonomics for me.

    Awesome bike!! I had a '77 back in the late 80's early 90's. So comfy.

    The wife has been trying to convince me to get a 'Wing or full dress Harley but I'm holding out. I still enjoy the wind in my face... most of the time ;)

    I can't believe I used to ride that thing in NYC. Several near-death experiences. Young and dumb.

    My silverwing died when my son was a few months old. I took that as a sign.
