Haven't wet my pants since I was 5 years old on Christmas eve...but I an waiting to get my new 2010 Goldwing tomorrow and at 57 years old I can't guarantee a dry night.
Four years ago I got back into biking after a 23 year hiatis. My first was a new Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Classic that I dressed up with a fairing and saddlebags. Nice bike, but my wife didn't like the seat. I then got a used Kawasaki Concours and it got sold in only 2 weeks. In my quest to find the 'perfect" bike I went BMW with a 2005 CL model. Nice rear seat, but an annoying shudder at 3000 RPM forced it's sale after a couple of months. It was replaced with a Honda ST1300. Sweet ride, Corbin seat, 125 HP....this was almost my dream machine until I saw thw BMW K1200LT, a year 2000, with low miles and a rear seat for a queen. Our last 3000 mile excursion was close to perfect. Coming home we encountered several Goldwing owners. We listened to their stories Goldwing, Goldwing, Goldwing, etc ...you know what I am talking about. So here I sit pounding out my story waiting for MY Goldwing to be PDI'd at the dealer tomorrow.
I figure that I have lots to compare to, but I KNOW the Wing is my last machine......air bag and all.
Good night fellow Wing owners...I hope.

Welcome to the Forum and congrats on the new Wing. I think the dealers should hand out a weeks supply of Depends with the purchase of a new Wing. Would save a lot of embarrassment on the home front:D

Good for you and welcome to the forum.
Once many years ago I had a 10 year hiatus from riding because my HD was such a bad bike. I must tell you my Goldwings are my favorite rides. You will love yours.
Ride Safe

Welcome to the forum from Seattle.

I highly recommend the GWRRA groups (Goldwing Road Riders Association) to find folks who ride wings in your area.

Congrats on your new GW! I've was told not to test drive one until I was ready to buy because it is such an awesome machine. So I didn't test drive one - just bought it. I'm hoping for a call to pick it up tomorrow or Thursday. Ride safe & welcome to the forum!

A paperwork glich caused a one day delay in the unification of this man and his machine. Tomorrow is Thursday and I will reread the owners manual one more time. It is better than counting sheep to go to sleep. Did I mention the forecast for rain tomorrow? If the weather network is correct, the bike gods will end the downpour around noon.
Pictures and a critique of the 2010 Goldwing are guaranteed to follow. With my history, I can compare my new Wing to other bikes (except Harleys)....never even wanted to ride one, but that is a topic for another post.
Wing on....
