Well after 35 yrs of not riding..life, kids, business etc got in the way we are finally going to take the plunge. Notified the wife and kids I'll be selling or trading my truck off for a Goldwing..Why a Goldwing..simple..its reputation. I don't buy culture (Harley) BTDT..At 62 years of age I need to get my 2 wheel fix before its to late. I do not need a 4wd sitting in the driveway any longer. Cross country trip being planned for next year and who knows where it will take me..and no the wife will not be along for the adventure. Bikes scare her to death, besides she still has a few more years before retirement..Great site here, lots of info to digest. Look forward to meeting some of you on the road when my time comes..
