I am a new member from Wetumpka, AL. My new wing is so new, I pick it up later today at the dealership. I got a glimpse of it yesterday.... Man, I can't wait to get on it and go. Just got the 20,000 mile service done on my '09 V-Star.... I guess the miles will slow down on it now. I am told the wing is the best bike on long rides that there is... Leaving on a trip Jul 1 leaving AL to WI, then onto MD.... 2500 miles? Any suggestions? Gonna take a couple of shorter trips first, though. May head out to Panama City, FL tomorrow.

Yahoo! Your not wasting any time are you ? Grab a Wing and go ! If your ride takes you near Sheboygan, WI can you check on one of our good members " WA9FWT " ( Phil ) ? He's been MIA now and then.

First Ride

Picked it up today! Went out for a short 70 miles, and guess what, it rained... Still was a great ride. Gonna try to go about 300 tomorrow. Wife loves the backseat.

Can't wait to ride up there. Born and raised in Janesville. Left at age 19 for the Air Force. Will be there for a couple of days. Then out again.

If it wasn't for that back seat I wouldn't be on this forum. I would still be on the VTX Solo Riders Forum. Thank you Goldwing for getting me here. Have fun !

BadgerFn64,

Greetings from a Pennsylvania guy. I'm in the midst of my trip right now sitting in an Illinois hotel heading to Missouri today. The one thing I do want to mention is we all love secondary roads however if you need to cover miles & your coming down thru West Virginia I would like to suggest I-79. I couldn't believe what a nice highway it was, We picked it up in Weston & rode to Charleston. My wife said it best it was like being taken back in time. Beautiful Mountains & no civilization in sight, long sweeping turns across, up, & down the mountain range. Can't say enough about it.

Enjoy the ride & be safe.

BadgerFN64....when you get to WI go to the west side of the state...along the Miss River...some great rustic roads....

How long are you going to be in WI...? ...I will be passing through Janesville late Thursday July 1st on my way to Wing Ding in Des Moines IA...With your new bike you should go...see all of the different accessories for the bike before you buy them.....

Safe Travels....:)

Slow down! This continent is only so big. The last thing you want to happen is run out of new roads to discover.
