Gotta admit one thing though,okay maybe two .First of all,I would buy the black color.Secondly,I remember some months back looking at a motorcycle show and lo and behold Honda had on display a naked goldwing!Itwas bronze and friggin' beyoootiful!Now if Honda actually made one ,weeeelllllll,can someone say home equity?

Maybe. Maybe not. I am openminded; so next time I am on business in SF or vacation in Florida I'll try to look for one to rent.

How 'bout the folks I see going down the road with a trailer and a sidehack?



You'd think the convertible would be cheaper, and more maneuverable.



Then there was the Winger steaming down I-10 with a WaveRunner on a trailer. Dontcha know there's some froggy braking behavior!?

And no room for a sweetie and her necessities either.

Could a subscription to "The American Spectator" be far behind?

Carol Yarouski - aka "Skert" used to do K12LT pick up demo's at BMW display/CW Bike shows....she is maybe 5'2" and about 105-110. (Skert, if you hear about this and I -er - overstated the ole lbs, sorry!)



She could pop the BMW LT (aka Light Truck) off the floor in nothing flat using the squat manuver.

K-LT has the power centerstand...not the Wing.



So yes, you are confused!

Everyone knows the Miata has four wheels and the Goldwing two. The point of comparing them is they are comparably priced and both provide an open-air riding experience, and yes their top speeds are probably in the same ballpark two. And the Miata is one of the lighter sporty convertibles, far lighter than a Corvette. Acceleration--the Goldwing wins no-doubt. My KLR 650 would win too in a 0-60 or even 1/4 mile run against a Miata

Maybe when we consider what guys are paying for custom choppers, it's not so bad?
