It actually has a small plexi windshield on it. She said she put it there because she was tired of bugs hitting her chest lol By the way, saw a wrecked goldwing on a tow truck, made me sad. I can't wait to get the class done so I can start riding it. Going to stick close to home until I get the hang of riding that beast though

Welcome to GWOF from the Aussie.

Congratulations on the new to you Goldwing.

Take your time and practice in a safe place until you are happy with your bike and riding skills. It would be good if you had a expierinced rider with you.

When all else fails.......... use a hammer!

a wing is not a beast its just a bike that's a little bigger than your last bike

Try it on and ride it a little. Had one like and it was a great bike and problem free. Only you can tell if you are comfortable on it. Your friends advise is good. Get that checked and get all the records of what's been done over the years. Welcome to the forum from Central Washington.
