Last Wednesday I bought my first Wing. The dealer I bought it from wanted to give it a service, replace the rear tire, and replace the speedometer cable the was bad all on there tab...that's good! My wife, (who insisted I get a Wing...any wonder why I love her :D) insisted that she has arm rests, so I had the dealer order a set and asked for them to be installed. Wife's happy...again that's good! I get a call today from the service manager letting me know that there is a small problem...the arm rests that got ordered fit a GL1800, not the GL1500 that I bought. To the guys credit he did offer to take a set off of a 1500 they have on the floor, but I decided to decline thinking I paid up front for a NEW set not a used. Bottom line is I won't be able to take my first real ride until this coming Wednesday. I honestly can't say who is more disappointed...me or the Mrs. But on the other hand it's been cold and rainy everyday since I bought the bike, and according to the weatherman, starting Tuesday the weather is supposed to break. Wednesday is suppose to be a fantastic day...sunny with little wind and highs in the upper 60's. So I guess it's all good as our first ride on our new (to us) Wing well be on a near perfect day. But I have to be honest with you all...having to wait a week has got me feeling like I'm seven years old and its still only December 23rd. :(

Well, your the paying customer and you got what you wanted. But, that's good because you will soon be riding and enjoying your Wing. Good luck with it!

What part of the country are you riding in? Sounds like my neck of the woods in New England.

Dane, Here's an idea when the weather finally does break do a search of weather for an extended trip grab a bag & do an overnighter ride for several hundred miles, layover, get up the next morning & ride back home. That would really be like Christmas Day, when you got outside on your new bicycle in 4" of snow just so you could ride it that 1 time.:D

Oh the memories: been there done that.

Hi all,

I got a call from the service manager at the dealer I bought the bike from. Good news...it's ready to roll! 12 hours to the first ride of the seadson and counting. High of 64 degrees, no wind, and sunny...it should be perfact leather weather. No I'm not excited :rolleyes:.
I forgot to mention that my wife and I are taking the day off of work just to ride. It's all good.

Dane,
I hope you and your wife enjoyed the ride today. My wife enjoys the Wing a lot more than the Stratoliner we also have. Be safe and watch out for the ones who aren't watching out for you.
