It actually has a small plexi windshield on it. She said she put it there because she was tired of bugs hitting her chest lol By the way, saw a wrecked goldwing on a tow truck, made me sad. :( I can't wait to get the class done so I can start riding it. Going to stick close to home until I get the hang of riding that beast though :)

Welcome to GWOF from the Aussie.

Congratulations on the new to you Goldwing.

Take your time and practice in a safe place until you are happy with your bike and riding skills. It would be good if you had a expierinced rider with you.

a wing is not a beast its just a bike that's a little bigger than your last bike :grin2:

Try it on and ride it a little. Had one like and it was a great bike and problem free. Only you can tell if you are comfortable on it. Your friends advise is good. Get that checked and get all the records of what's been done over the years. Welcome to the forum from Central Washington.

I think or maybe remember that on the 77 I could take the fake gas side cover off. I think.

Yea I finally figured that out :grin2: Didn't know how they came off until I got curious about the glove box lol. As for the classes, not sure how it is in other states, but in Oregon you have to have a motorcycle endorsement on your license. The class use to be optional, now it is mandatory. Which is fine, I was going to take it anyway. Lucky they have bikes you can use, small ones. So I am going to use theirs and then practice on mine afterwards.

I've watched a few of those classes when family members were taking them and the road course is too small for a wing IMHO
good luck with the class!!

My local buddy to the Ride Like A Pro Class. He came out Ok, but his Wing suffered a few bruises. I told him I'll take the class if I can borrow his bike .
