Dream bike

Hi guys.
I'm a new owner of a 07 Goldwing. It's been my dream bike since I was Young.
I live in England and only passed my test 5 years ago.
I've had a few bikes since Inc deauville 650, moto guzzi Norge, BMW r1200rt and Mt last bike a faab BMW K1200LTLux. Just too top heavy or it would be a stunning bike.
Now I have the wing its amazing. So nimble. Weight distribution is spot on. I just love it.
I look forward to learning and reading posts. Eventually even giving advice.
Cheers

A good long ride can clear your mind, restore your faith, and use up a lot of gas

You're going to like your choice. Congrats and welcome to the forum.

Ride often. Ride far. Ride safe and do much more of both.
Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach him how to surf the GWOF and he won't bother you for weeks, maybe months
I'll be waitin' for you at the end of the road.
If everything had gone as planned, it would not have been an adventure.

Welcome to the forum from South Jersey. Congrats on the purchase. I'm thinking of dumping both my bikes for a BMW R1200RT or K1600. I think the capabilities of those two leaves the wing behind.
