Hi to all you riders out there,my name is mario and have been riding harleys all my life until last sat and i could not and canot get the smile of my face from my 12 wing with a bit of a bling , im in perth western australia and was wondering if honda make a travel device to ride on water, if so ill be traveling to the states for a ride .
Mind you im 55 and need a change from the burnt legs and sore ase,and locousts the size of texas inbeded on my face.
I cant belive this machine is so smooth and comfort,with great handling,i tried the bmw and no match at all, even with the eletronics, i can fully understand why you gus and girls ride wings.
Its all about the ride and not the hyde. Cheers

thank you very much for your very kind words and responses, it realy means a lot to to me as i did 480kls today with all my mates who still rides hds, and its going to take a wile to get used to the ribbing,mind you they had to stop,so many times for fuel,stretch and scratch.
Can any pro winger help me as i cant get used not having hwy pegs,ive got the iso floor boards and are great, but need to stretch my legs forward or should i wait and get used to it.
love to ride with more wings in perth but not many around,chat with you later.see ya

Highway pegs and backrest will get you from Perth to Sydney with only gas stops. A few option available. What is your leg inseam length ? In other words, with your boots on, what's the measured distance from the floor to your jewel box ?

Mario, welcome to the GWOF. Invest in Highway pegs as quickly as you can. In an Ole Fossil's opinion they are a requirement.

Great to see new wingers on the web site, and fully understand the joy it brings you.
I have installed the ergo 2 hwy pegs and dark smoke turn signal lens on my black wing from wingstuff and delivererd to perth west australia,and the guys are the best to deal with for any ad ons.
The hwy pegs are the best things since sliced bread,
was riding down south and stoped for fuel when to young pups arived on their boom,boom hds when one said to me that they admired my sofa,i just smiled and waited for them to take off then let it rip to the next town site and waited for them to catch up.
as they rode past they looked away,i dont normaly do this but somtimes it just pisses me of ,iwas a young pup once with hd in my blood but admirerd all bike riders.
oh well ride on
