Hi GW family!

Bob here, or Bobby as my family calls me (we're all family here right?). Anyway, been riding for many many years, but have never ventured into the forum "world." On the advice of my oldest son who is just getting into motorcycles, I thought I would join one about my treasured Goldwing.

I bought the bike left over new in 2004 and have enjoyed every mile I put on it since. My wife and I have taken it all over the country, and she (the bike not my wife ha!) should be breaking 80k miles this year.

Anywhoo thanks for letting me in the club, it's a pleasure to be here.

I tried attaching a picture of the bike but it didn't work the first time. Let me try this again.

Welcome to the forum Bobby from Ontario Canada! That is one beautiful looking ride (and the fastest colour!).
Enjoy the forum. Most of these guys are old so they know about Wings .
Ride safe,

Welcome to the forum and while Strat is an awesome guy, he does not know his colors very well, but his heart is in a good place. As you know, any Wing is a fast (and comfortable) way to see the country.
