Hey folks,
I'm a brand new wing owner and just stared riding again after 25 yrs.
I'm a little worried though; I can only ride my 2005 wing for about 20 or 30 min. before I start to hurt. I'm 6'2" and it seems very cramped. I really want to enjoy this beautiful bike, any suggestions would really be appreciated. Thanks!

Do you have back rest? If not get one. It will help

Yes, I have a back rest, and I have highway bars, that is if I can spread my legs that wide around the fairing. I ordered a set of peg extension bt I don't want to start buying alot of stuff til I check with other wing riders and get their suggestions.

hello and welcome to goldwing owners forum kickstand, you may need a different seat. wings ( all years ) have low seats and for taller riders it leaves the legs in a cramped position. i am only six feet but find my seat too low so i bought a gel pad to raise me up and that works for me. without the pad my legs feel cramped after about 40 minutes. by the time an hour goes by i am ready to get off the bike but with the gel pad i have been in the saddle as long as two and a half hours.
