Cool Greetings from Iowa

Long time biker...owner of many styles and brands. My first Wing experience, hope I can enjoy this ride as much as I have other bikes. I'm always looking for some good tips and tricks to make this ride comfortable, as I do like to log miles....lots of miles.

Welcome David. My father's family were from a ways northwest of you in Spencer. I sidestepped past your area a couple years ago on my way through. Was pretty amazed at how the land down there resembles the flatlands in these parts; different crops though for sure. Sure hope you enjoy your Goldwing.

grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!
