Hi I am a first time gw owner and new to forum. Funny story so stick with me. This is my 4th honda mc in my 65 yrs. I put about 15k of touring miles per season. I did 6k miles in 30 days to the mid west last summer. I had a ball but I wanted to go to the west coast this summer. I was riding an awesome 2008 honda st 1300 which I put 40 k on in 2.5 seasons. I would go to wv and do twisties all day and love it. My hands started bothering me due to arthritis setting in. I bought a 2010 honda gw loaded 2 weeks before my scheduled west coast trip. I swore my whole life I would never never own a goldwing. I didn't have a lot of time to do much research. I figured I could sell it if it sucked. When I looked at the bike I asked the owner about the rear tire it seemed a little wide and not rounded on the edges. He said that I would get use to it. Whatever...I took 1 road trip to wv twisties before my west coast trip. All of my favorite high speed corners sucked and I had to slow down. I couldn't figure it out but figured that I had to grow up and drive the gw more like it was designed for....long cruises and not cornering. Well I did 9000 miles in 30 days to the west coast and back to NY. I really struggled with 75/ 80 mph long sweeping corners on the interstate. Straight interstate roads in SD at 89mph what a dream even could ride with no hands to stretch out. I finally found this forum and started reading about ct on gw. Duh I am a darker sider and didn't even know it. I started adjusting my tire pressure and keeping daily notes. I finally found a happy balance and it includes slowing down a bit for corners. I still scrape some parts on some corners but I will probley live longer by not always driving like I stole it. My summary 1) I love my gw 2) I just replaced the same ct that was on it bridgestone 195/55rf 16 87v 3) might keep my st1300 if it doesn't sell for twisties. Hope this wasn't to long and boring but still chuckle that I didn't know I had a ct on my motorcycle.
