Hello everyone,
My name is Mike and I’m located in Central Texas. I do not own a Goldwing at the moment but I am gathering information to see if that’s the way I want to go. I currently ride a Pearl White 2007 VTX 1300. I joined an X forum after I made the purchase. I truly wish I had joined before. I’ve had my X about 2 months now and it is beating me to death. I’m 53 years old and should have bought a more comfortable bike. I ride 42 miles one way to work everyday, my back and butt takes a whipping. I don’t want to invest a lot of money in upgrades for the X because I don’t think the VTX is the bike for me. I’m looking to find out as much information about the Goldwing as possible.

Mike

Goldwing is the comfort !

Hey Mike, I must tell you that I bought my 2008 Goldwing about four months ago. I used to ride the C90T Suzuki Blvd. I thought I had a nice Touring bike but like you said, after about 80 miles or so, I needed a break. With the goldwing, wow what a bike.I have all the power,comfort and relieability that I will ever need. I love my goldwing, it is one amazing bike !!!!

hello and welcome mike, that cruiser look looks good butriding with all your weight on your tail bone doesn't feel good. the wing may have a more "sit up and beg" riding position but its comfortable, from the 1000s to the 1800s

Goldwing the best

I have owned a lot of harleys years ago and purchased my first goldwing a couple of months ago. I made the purchase and had my wife drive me there in a car to pick it up and ride it home. It was about a 250 mile trip and I really enjoyed the ride and didnt get tired or bone weary. there isnt many bikes I could do that with at age 70.
now I am looking to upgrade my 85 wing to a newer one with more options on it.

Thanks guys for the replies, I'm going to gather as munch info from this site and try to make an informed decision. Wish I had done my homework before buying my X. After 40 miles I can feel it in my bones.

Welcome from another old fart in Texas!:D
My daily ride is 30 miles each way, and riding the 'Wing is almost as comfortable as the Cadillac. Mine is an older model('81 Interstate), but it rides smooth as glass, and my butt hasn't gone to sleep on me yet.
Go ahead and jump on a Wing...you'll love it.:cool:
