So I bought this. It's a 2018 T120. It weighs 380lbs less than my Goldwing. And it's just as pretty.

the thing I miss with my Piaggio, is the Windscreen/Fairing
having all of the wind in my face, is not enjoyable at all.

Nice looking bike, but you will miss the 'Wing.
Very true, but I can hold this up easier at stops. Old age got the better of me!
Not planning on touring any more but still want to ride. This will keep a smile on my face.

I don't disagree, and that bike is truly gorgeous.
It has that "old school" look that we OLD school gentlemen can appreciate.

You can put one of those plastic fairings on it and have a nice "day tourer".

Agree with the weight and holding up the bike. Still have my '85 GW, but touring right now on our 2014 Spyder RTL, and have a Royal Enfield Himalayan for solo riding. The Himalayan is 400 pounds lighter, old school, agricultural looking, and gets 90 IMPG:

I picked up a 2019 Street Scrambler the end of April, I'm really starting to love the bike. What I miss most of all is the wind protection of a true shield at 70 mph. Seems to be a lot more work hanging onto the bars at speed than it did 50 years ago...

Grew up on Trumpets and they were always (almost) reliable, stylish and quick... you will love it. Congrats!

I'm hoping for a dozen more years of two-wheel GoldWings (I'm 64) but when the time comes I'll look for a reverse-trike kit for the 1500 (are you kidding? It'll be a 41 year-old bike then! 😮) so I'll probably be forced to downsize, too... :cry:

I’m 65 and have thought several times on how long I’ll be able to ride my ‘91. I guess as long as my wife tells me I am able to!
