Hello everyone. Checking in from Virginia Beach. Brought home a 2008 GL1800 HPNA Metallic Dark Red (fastest color?) yesterday. Got to ride it home about 170 miles. Coming off of a '03 BMW R1150R which I love but my wife doesn't find comfortable for longer distances. This is my first Goldwing. In some ways, I have to relearn how to ride, particularly at slower speeds but I'm sure I will get used to that. I've already read many threads on the forum so I'm looking forward to contributing.
