I am going to be a buying my first Wing in the next few weeks. I think that I am going to be going for a 2012 hoping for black or red. I havent spent much time on a Wing but I have wanted one for 15 years now. I am stepping up considerly from what I am riding now,'09Honda Shadow, so I am sure to have a learning curve. Cant wait to take those long trips and start many years of memories on my wing. I also live in Noblesville, IN so if there are ever any rides through my area I am always down for going along.
