Hi from Ontario Canada

Welcome to the GWOF from Pa.

You will enjoy the new ride I’m sure if you give it a chance. Make no mistake it will be different than the HD.

Also not sure in Ontario where you are but if you are looking to stretch it’s legs a bit come on down to Pa. on our Memorial Day weekend and you will meet some nice folks, even a few Canuckers

Hello and welcome to the forum from Michigan. I think you'll be happy with your choice of moving to a 'Wing specially if you like to do any distance riding. My brother owned several different Harley's before buying a 'Wing and has said many times if he was forced to go back to a Harley he would quit riding.
You will find on a Goldwing you can ride all day, be comfortable then turn around and do it again tomorrow, which is what true touring riding is all about. Ride safe and enjoy.

Hello from Sudbury Ontario where we are in the middle of a snow storm. Bought my new 2017 3 weeks ago so looking forward to good weather. Have not had a wing in about 17 years retiring in a few months and can’t wait to go playing.
