After having my Goldwing for 6 weeks and not riding it I said the hell with the weather. It was cold enough so my dirt road was not mud and I went for my first ride as a Goldwing owner. After riding Harleys for the last 18 yrs. I was left wondering why? This Goldwing is awesome. It was high 30's with 30 to 40 mph winds. I was pushed around some but I was warm with my Gerbings and the comfort/audio pkg. The hand wings also work great. My E-Glide had a radio but this one makes that seem like a transister radio. I love this bike. The power,the comfort,the ride. Its the complete touring machine. No looking back just forward. I love it!! Oh and the heated seat is fantastic. I installed a Utopia back rest and I quess I did it right with no damage to the seat.
