Hi everyone and here is my storie.............

It was a beautiful winter saturday morning here in Brisbane Australia , my son and I were at the local Honda/Ducati dealer to trade in my 1098 Ducati on a 1198S.

Being a busy day, while we were waiting we were checking out all the new bike. I said to juniior , how about we go for a test ride on the Goldwing (ha,ha). My son (11 yo ) only likes sports bikes.

He tells me ,no way in he getting on the back of a "grayhound bus"!!

Im laughing to myself , thinking this is really funny until the sales man gives me the keys to the wing and says see you in an hour or 2.

Worst thing I ever did, that test ride cost me $38,500.

My son loved it too.

So I have a nice shinny 2009 Silver GL1800 in the shed, which is now alot smaller than it used to be.

I still have my 1098, tell me I dont have an understanding wife:)

Riding a Wing sure is a powerful drug. Congrats on the bike. I like that quote "happy wife = happy life"! I'll have to get that tattooed on my forehead !
