I'm trying to justify keeping the super sport bike that is only comfortable for about 1 hour in each direction, but not in bumper to bumper traffic. I like the mountain twisties, even though they are rather dangerous. I'm wondering whether anyone has ridden the Goldwing through the twisties at a moderate clip and lived to tell about it? Or is the Goldwing just for conservative riders who like comfort?

Wolf is about as good as it gets when it comes to riding a Wing aggressively. We also have a resident track dood (Dookoo) that runs his Wing at Button Willow and Laguna Seca tracks. Pretty cool stuff! Here's his vid. BTW, Wolf got to be so famous at the Gap he got harrassed by so many troppers he moved to Florida for a while. Rumour has it he's back though.

One other thing, I also ride a rocket when my inner child needs exercise...wouldn't be without it actually. The RC51 is a different breed of cat than other supersports though:cool: Don't get me wrong, I love my Wing, but the 1000R gives me goose bumps every time I get on it.:D

Ah, that is what I needed to hear. I'll find a way to get the new Goldwing and keep my 2012 ZX-14R, even if it means getting a job. :) I am kind of hoping one of the local dealers will give me the airbag model for $26,000 out the door, because no one wants it.
$26,000 out the door? Wouldn't be a problem around here in Northern Virginia. They might even throw in a two weeks all expenses paid vacation to Amen Iowa. Taxes and other restrictions may apply please contact your dealer for details, offer not valid with expired coupons , void where prohibited, consult you doctor before operating heavy machinery.

26 OTD is a pretty tall order from what I can see for incentives available. Only $500 advertised from Honda, and the dealer may not get all of that either as it's an accessory rebate.

I figure the maximum I should pay would be $27,000.00 out the door.
Don't know where you live, but check out this price for an airbag model..
