I have owned both GW's and Harleys as well as other bikes. But now that I'm officially a geezer (SS and Medicare)I just got to thinking that one gets smarter and wiser with age. That may explain the geezer/Goldwing thing.

Some of us just got smarter a little faster though, (20+ years away from SS). ;):D

I'll disagree with the geezer part, I'm only 56, but wiser, yes.

Now hang on. I didn't say you had to be a Geezer to ride a GW nor did I mean you are a geezer if you ride one.



I got my first GL1000 when I was in my 30's I think. Since then I've tried other bikes too. At one time I had three different ones.



What I meant to say is that as one gets older and wiser I think the draw to a GW increases.

Can't speak for the others but I was just razzing you. :) A good portion of GL owners seem to be at least in the AARP age range. ;)

I had always assumed that if you buy a brand new GL it came with a complimentary AARP membership!



I'm 44, but feellike a geezer most days!

That's only a rumor spawned by the new keyless starting system: you have to swipe your AARP card to make it start...:dude:

I was the same way. I remember seeing the GL1100 Aspencade in a magazine when I was in High School and falling in love with it. Somehow I never got a bike until I was 30, and didn't a Wing until I was 38. Now I've had my 1200 for 6 years and wouldn't ride anything else.

I'm a geezer on fire, with a Honda ST1300, a KLR650, and a 1963 model pure-blooded Redhead! Yessir, no power scooters in sight..... yet......

As somebody famous once said, "everybody dies, but not everybody really lives!"

Ride 'Till Ya Drop!"

I knew what you ment:dude:. I don't mind being called a geezer just doesn't matter to me. What does matter is I love riding my wing.
