This is Scooterwayne from Hot Springs Arkansas...

I guess I have come full circle on bikes, but if I had had a white
Burgman 650 instead of a dark titanium one I would still be on it...

The allure of the Goldwing and the deal I got i.e. 2008 with 2k miles
for 16500 was too good to let get by me...I can't stand the Black though
and I'm going to get it painted silver (I think) I love a Silver Goldwing.
((unless someone can give me an arguement that Black is beautiful or faster))...

But I might just sell it and get a real bike---a Burgman 650Scooter...White...

Anyways, This big ole pig is sure good on the highway and I would even say

I love it greatly, you know, in the left lane about 85...lol.

I do miss my scooter and am going thru the process of getting used to the wt.
and shifting gears again...

But, I'm a better biker than I was with my '02 Goldwing...

The 2008 is much louder though...did they change the quality of the
pipes since '02...?

I'm glad to be here and if youse like Arkansas I'm yur guy...

Best,

w


p.s.

pig is a "love" word around here, if you know what I mean...

The colour of the bike never worrys me.I have black at the moment and keeping it looking clean is a problem.One thing I like is 200 miles fuel range.We have some service stations that are that far apart and no chance to get fuel in between.You would notice the differance between smaller bikes and the wing.

The only thing Honda change it the tips, the 01 to 05 showed 3 holes but 2 were dummies, the 06 and up have 1 hole but the mufflers are the same.

Welcome to the forum from Pa. As much as I like the Burgman (thinking about one for a second bike), I'm much happier with my Wing. Ride safe and enjoy the forum..

Welcome Scooterwayne. If you are used to the Burgman, the Wing may sound louder due to the waaay quieter scooter. Is the Wing new or used? If it's used, the PO could have tweaked the exhaust system.
