Just got my dream bike from Colorado

Hi everyone

Newbie to Goldwings, havenít owned a bike since before our 5 kiddos. My good friend has two Honda VTX 1300s that us couples rode on short trips in NC for a few years. Loved it, but it would wear me out after 60 miles. So began the Goldwing dream. Well things happened and my bride said letís just do itófind one and letís kill two birds with one stoneósee parts of the US that we havenít seen...but it must include Route 66.

That began my month long search of a used Wing and I found my 2010 baby in Denver. We took 10 days to drive her back to NC and had a great time in all kinds of crazy weather. Learned a lot and look forward to many future adventures on her and from these forums. Kudos to the previous owner Larry who took great care of my Black Pearl and helped get her ready for heated gear.
