Wink just bought a new goldwing

My husband and I went to a Honda Dealership, just look and notice how i said just look. We just wanted tosee what they had in the 08 models, well needless tosay we walked out of the dealership without our old bike, which by the way was a 2002 BMW R1150RT, not a bad bike had it around 7 years,because my husband bought the BMW in 2001 before it come out. Any how we come out of the dealership with a 08 chrisom,in other words OU color. Complete comfortpack,abs navi and yes allthe bells and whistles. we are a little sad to see the BMW gobut we willbe happy with the goldwing.

Keep an eye on the crumb tray at the bottom of the bagel toaster. I've heard the 08's have had some fires if it's not kept clean. Unless you ordered the optional ACTES (automatic crumb tray emptying system).

Toby,

Ignore Ken, as he is apparently off his meds again.

Congratulation on the new bike! Ride the wheels off of it!

The GoldWing is the ultimate mile-eater. It works and works well. I had a 97 Wing and rode the hell out of it. You will love it.

Of course, there are only two bikes of similar weight on the market today, so that's not saying much!
