Robert, First off, you have made some wise choices all ready, 1. you have a son that has given you his goldwing, Awesome, 2. you have a son that appreciates goldwings, again, awesome, 3. You have signed up for the basic riding course, great move, and finally and most of all, you sought out and joined this site.
This site is probably the most comprehensive GOLDWING site out there. It is world wide, and you don't get much more then that. I'm good at this type of thing, but if you ever have any questions about the wing itself, this is the place to ask. There is more live knowledge on this site then there is at any honda dealership. The members are smart, in more ways then one, generous with their opinions, but generous of heart as well.
Check out the site, do lots of reading, and ask as many questions as you want, heck they haven't kicked me off yet.
Welcome to the site and welcome to the world of the GOLDWING, probably the most comfortable ride on 2 wheels. Oh and hats off to your son.

If it ain't fun, why do it?
“Lest I keep my complacent way I must remember somewhere out there a person died for me today.
As long as there must be war, I ask and I must answer Was I Worth Dying For?”
