Beautiful bike. The red over black is probably my favorite color combo on the new wings. Congrats!

During 2015, my wife and I sold our HD Street Glide and bought a red/black 2015 Honda Goldwing. Our Harley friends have teased us, but I don't regret the decision. I miss the deep thunder sound of our Street Glide, but the improved handling and reverse are well worth the change.

I forgot to mention that some of my HD friends have nicknamed me George Jetson because of the sound of my Goldwing!

I have a friend, have only known him for 1.5 years, he just retired at that time and moved to Texas. Over the holidays I went over to his house to do some measurements for a cabinet build estimate, I rode my wing. Since June 1 he has ridden over 15000 miles. He has three bikes, two big yamahas and a victory. He was looking over my wing setting in his driveway. I told him the keys are in it, take it to the river and back, that is about a 10 mile ride. He did, now he tells me his is putting his 3 up for sale in early spring to by a wing. hehheheehh another convert in the making.

I had a Victory cruiser. Put more than 60K on it. A good bike with lots of torque and no issues. However, my wife really didn't find the ride that comfortable and we decided to look around and test ride several different bikes. Sold the Vic and bought the Wing. She likes riding on the back of this one. MM

Welcome to the forum. I have fond memories of my CB750. Unfortunately it was stolen. You haven't seen it, have you? But that's ok, I have my Wing now and I love it. One thing for sure, I am not going to take my Wing trail riding like I did my 750. Freakout.
