Hi. New to the forum. I am getting tired of my old Concours 14 and looking at a new 2010 or 2012 Goldwing abs. I am here to lurk and see what I can find out about the Goldwing and its faults before I buy.

The worst thing about owning a wing is trying to to get the :d off your face.
I can't see a down side.

If you are even considering it, you should do it.
Once you ride on a wing of your own, you will wonder what took you so long.
Power, comfort, ride in the rain without rain gear and stay mostly dry, what it not to love?
Now to choose, year, color, new, used, you can't go wrong.

There's nothing in the current market that can be compared to a Goldwing. Go take one for a test ride or borrow a friend's and allow that experience to determine your decision. :D

Welcome!

There aren't too many new 2010s left on the west coast & the ones that are left are yellow (my wife's favorite color, but not mine).

We looked carefully at the 2010s & 2012s before deciding to buy a 2008 level III abs. It was a full 10K less than the 2012 & it had just 18K miles.

Anyway, welcome & best wishes during your search!

You're so right about the mpg. Anybody who says otherwise is believing the lcd readout on a downhill.

Luckily I was able get a test ride today on a used 2008 at my local dealer. The Glodwing is a smooth ride for sure. I would have a very short adjustment period if I go with a Wing. The seat is a little more upright but I had no problems reaching the controls. And no seat height problems.

Welcome to the forum from Down Under. As far as the gas mileage goes, all I want to know is how far will it take me and how far away is the next gas station. Eric
