Don't mind me. I'll just be lurking around a bit.

I currently have a Harley Sportster and am considering getting a touring bike some day to see if I can get the wife involved. I grew up riding Honda's, so I want to learn about what the latest and greatest is with the Wings....

Sportster versus a Wing

You are about to make a major move. Wives move up from just someone hanging on to become a Backseater, Co-pilot, Co-rider whatever the name status that gets them involved in the bike and it's operation. But the do love to be pampered. Heck I have a lighted make-up mirror on the inside of the trunk deck so she can fix the helmet-head hair when we stop.:eek: She loves the Wing as much or more then I do.

Been doing the same thing since November of last year myself; some might say " too much ". I came from riding a 1300 VTX solo for three years to installing a passenger cup holder for the wife on " her " new Wing. It's much easier for me to have a bike that she has an interest in . Now if she doesn't ride with me somewhere it's by choice.

Hey there Joe, welcome. Took my wife for a ride o a Sporty on Grand Cayman 5 years ago. She never complained about my Vulcan after that. Now that we've got a Wing again, she asked me when we were taking a trip!

Joe - Wife and I just finished a 4200 mile trip this past Sunday on our 1 month old Wing. Not a peep from the back... Maybe a few Zzzzz's. She asked today when we are going to add more states to OUR map on OUR wing...

You won't be sorry to have a Goldwing.. I was contemplating a Victory Vision. Glad I listened to those who had done the same. When I got back from the trip, we had picked up a nail in Atlanta. I got back to Montgomery, AL and the dealership was closed, but one of the guys came into the shop on his off day to put my bike inside overnight.
