Hello from New Jersey

Hello Everyone. I'm not a Goldwing owner yet. My current motor is a Harley. I ride with a group of guys who will buy nothing but Wings and swear by them. One of their bikes needed a rebuild after 160K miles, a lot of which was pulling a trailer and another is 27 years old and well over 100K miles. So, I'm listening, learning, and considering a second bike because I just can't see not owning a Harley yet. Maybe more education will cure me of that snobery.

Welcome to the GWOF from a Keystone neighbor. Lots of Wing owners have 2nd bikes. Heck my buddy Tom from NJ usually has 2-5 extra bikes.

Welcome from Richmond, Virginia. We don't care what bike you ride as long as you're on two wheels, as long as those two wheels are on a wing. I have a brother In Hackettstown.

Don't think of it as snobery. Do you do all you yard work with only a leaf rake? I hope not - hard to cut the grass. Same with a bike - different so you can do different 'jobs'. Get the right bike for you and your job. If it's a GW, great. If not, so what. But put a couple miles on the bike - a couple smiles on your face. It's all good.
