Hello all!

I just purchased a 1999 Goldwing 50th Anniversary Edition with about 54,000 miles. It is in beautiful shape with barely a stone chip in the paint. I picked it Tuesday and rode it home from the previous owners house, about a 60 mile ride. It rides like a dream although there are some things I need to get used to. My previous bike had a heel toe shifter where as this one just has the toe shifter. I know there are after market heel toe shifters but I'm trying to adapt. Also, the position of the rear brake is taking a little getting used to. it is quite a bit lower than my previous bike.

I'm sure I'll adapt to all these changes. Took it out to a parking lot today for some slow speed manuevering and planning a longer ride tomorrow to get used to it.

Congrats on the new ride! :D
Mine has floorboards, with a heel/toe shift...something I haven't had since the ElectraGlide I had in the late '70s. I had a hard time adapting to the heel/toe at first, but now it just seems natural. I'd probably find it hard to go back to a "normal" foot shifter now!
I have the same issue with my brake pedal...especially with the floorboards. It's a little tough to find sometimes.

Enjoy the ride!!
