I am considering a Goldwing purchase. I have called several dealers in my area (Eastern Va.) and have not had any luck finding one in stock to look at. In fact the last dealer I spoke to said the only way to see one was the internet and then place an order. What gives? Any suggestions? :confused:

Welcome to the forum from Seattle.

I highly recommend the GWRRA groups (Goldwing Road Riders Association) to find folks who ride wings in your area. When you attend chapter meetings you will find friendly folks that ride the same motorcycle you do, and they know their motorcycle.

You can find a local chapter by going their website: http://www.gwrra.org

Welcome svk, ditto, find another dealer; this guy doesnèt seem to want to sell one anyway. Last one I sold I had to transfer in but I kept my customer happy.

Re: Goldwing search

Thanks for all the replies and advice.
I think we have decided to rent a Goldwing for a weekend to give it a proper test. There is a rental agency in Richmond that has one.
If we like it well enough I'd consider traveling to make a purchase.

That is a great idea to rent one for a week, I bought mine recently and I haven't been in my car rain or shine from the day I brought my 2012 home. I can tell you you wont need a week to find out what we all know about the Goldwing.Good luck.

Renting is a great idea, That's what my wife and I did. Just a week later the Harley was gone and a shiny blue '12 wing was in the garage!
I love it. I bought a used older one to "test" out a wing. 8800 miles, 9 months later I still have the same shit eating grin on my face.

I will probably upgrade to an 1800 when I get to the point where this old girl has a problem that requires some real dollars to put back on the road. 38,900 miles on her now. 29,400 was on it for the "test."
