New Winger!

Hey everyone!

Just jumped right in and got myself a 2018 Pearl White Goldwing Automatic DCT and finally got her home today. I have to say, it's a beautiful machine and handled great once I got used to the lack of manual clutch. I live in the So Cal mountains and got a chance to taste freeway, city and mountain driving on the way home. I coming from a 2002 Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic, so this is a big change, but look forwarder to much more comfortable long rides and road trips. Look forward to reading this forum over the coming many years I own this bike!
