Hello from Central Alabama

Hello - I live near Birmingham, Alabama and I am a first time Goldwing owner. Two weeks ago I purchased a beautiful Red 2012 Audio Comfort Nav model with only 26k miles and so far, I am loving it. I've been riding motorcycle off and on for most of my 67 years. Honda 50, 90 305 dream and scrambler, Kawasaki KZ100, a Bridgestone 100, and for the past 15 years Harley Davidson Touring. I still own a 2017 Harley RoadGlide Ultra but after riding the GL for two weeks I think I'm ready to sell the Harley.

Thanks
Jerry

Welcome to the GWOF from Pa.

We have a few converts here at the site. I'm sure they will chime in, if they see this.

Welcome to you from Mississippi. I too have the fastest color and really enjoy it. Hope to see you at that Meet-n-Greet in October. Even if it is just the day we ride down to Barber's.

Welcome to the forum Jerry from Ontario Canada! Like you, I have owned a lot of bikes over the years. The Goldwing is the most amazing machine out there.
Ride safe,
