Just finished a 2000 mile trip through Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and Colorado on my, new to me, 2005 Goldwing. What a great bike for touring! I did a couple of 500 mile days, which would of killed me on my other bikes. It's not as sporty, but the comfort andwind/rain protection,offer a whole new aspect to touring on a motorcycle. But then I don't need to tell you all about that. I got 47.5 mpg at 65 mph or less, and 40 mpg at 80 mph. Not bad for 2 up and loaded on a big bike.

Here are a few pictures.

It was cool and wet. It was in the low 50's before it started raining, then dropped into the high 40's. We had our electric jackets, but didn't need to plug them in because of the great protection on the GW. :action:

Nothing quite like your 1st big trip, especially when riding a Wing. ;)

Great destinations and pics. Still a fair bit of snow in the High Country yet, as I figured.

Yup, been checking out the forecast for Glacier/Yellowstone/Grand Tetons and looks like we're going to be getting wet and have cool temps. We leave on the 15th. ;)

Now that you've 'cut your teeth', you'll be back for more! :waving:
