Welcome aboard from fly-over country. (Lake Forest IL)I am a new Goldwing owner. Bought a 2006 yesterday. This is my first Goldwing and I am moving from a 2006 ST1300. I learned a ton from STOwners forum and am looking for forward to learning more about my GW from this forum. Thanks!
I prefer the cooler weather when riding and the heated seat and hand grips extend my riding range to nearly 12 months here in the Midwest. Only snow and salt on the roads keep my GL1800 sidelined.Welcome from Edmonton! I too upgraded from an ST1300 to a GL1800 this year and, as much as I loved the ST, I enjoy the Wing even more. I find it easier to handle and more comfortable for long road trips. On one day this summer, I rode the Wing for 12 hours (including 6 hrs in the cold BC rain) and felt none the worse for wear. A little weary, but I could not have done that on the ST. Enjoy your Wing!
