I'm a long time Harley rider. I hit a milestone with my 01 E-Glide with 100,000 miles. The bike has been awesome never stranding me on the side of the road and the heads have never been off. But I think it might be time for a change. I want to cross the country next year before I get too old and do it in comfort. I think the Goldwing is the bike to do it. And the Wing will pull a trailer with my camping gear. I know the Harley will do it too but the Wing will do it easier. So I will gather all the info I can from this forum and make a good decision. I'm 60 in Nov. and life is short so I want to tour our country next year. Thanks for all the insite I know I will get here.

Welcome aboard and happy shopping for a new wing. Your at the right pace here, very knowledgeable folks here that can tell you all about wings, and offer up some interesting dialect as well.( Right Lee?):)

I too live where winter shortens our riding season. Maybe we can squeeze 6 months out and if I can do 100,000 on my Harley I should double it on a Wing. I have not had a chance to ride one yet but I will. We have our annual bike blessing next weekend so I will talk to some Wing owners and pick thier brains.

Trourke, good luck on your search for the perfect Wing. For long distance riding I don't think you can beat the Wing. Glad you joined the forum and hope we can provide you with some good information. Ride safe and enjoy.

Trourke, seek and ye shall find. Wings pull trailers really well. Pulled a Solaris and then a Tinymite with both a 1200 and a 1500 for many years and a whole whack of miles over just about any kind of road you could imagine (not always by choice LOL). Once you get the hang of the extra unit behind you and its' associated changes, proper hitch and loading is the key to happy travels. ;)

Trourke, like you I rode Harleys for awhile, infact I still have my Heritage. I decided after my last trip I wanted more comfort and decided to get a Wing and Im glad I did. I fell in love with the bike on the ride home. Will keep the harley for around town, but when it comes to a trip Im going to be on the wing :)
