Hello all. I just want to say that this is a very impressive forum for the Goldwing. I've looked at several and there is far more information here than the others I have seen.

Just bought my 1st Goldwing, a 1999 SE. Picked it up last Tuesday. A beautiful bike. My previous bike (for sale if anyone is interested) is a 2006 Suzuki Boulevard C50. Also a very nice bike but after a couple of years and road trips I felt that something a littlemore comfortable was required. My wife didn't care for the passenger seat on the C50 either.

The C50 was my 1st bike so I'm a new rider, about 2 years now. I find the Goldwing to be quite a bit different and taking some getting used to. For one thing,the C50 had a heel/toe shifter, the wing doesn't. I know ther are after market kits but thought I'd try to adjust. Same with the position of the rear brake. I don't think either will be a problem as I seem to be geting used to them.

In my first week of ownership I'm ashamed to say I've almost dropped the bike twice. the first time I was stopping at a red light and my right pant leg got hooked on the highway peg. A very exciting time. The second time I was pulling into the Honda dealership and well, just over corrected at slow speed. A really emabarrasing moment. Went over pretty far before I caught it. You never know your own strength until your about to put scartches on a beautiful new toy. Looks like I'll be spending some more time with slow speed manuevers in the parking lot this weekend.

Anyway, thanks for such a great website. I'll visit often.

Don't let it worry you, I have dropped my several times. It's a big club, we should have t-shirts made up.

Thanks all. Beenlooking atthe forum and lots of good stuff here.

I saw the tip in adding a AUX connection to the radio and I am interested in trying that. Has anybody else done this and how did it turn out? Although I'm old enough to have thousands of casette tapes, and records if you know what those are, I prefer the compactness of an mp3 player.

Suzuki Boulevard C50. It's a nice little bike, well balanced, with an 800 cc (50 cubic inch) v-twin. Great bike for cruizing around town and at speeds < 60 mph. Above that the rpms are a little high although there is still a lot of powerleft. It just got uncomfortable after about an hour of riding.

Greetings friend, and welcome to the forum! I know what you mean about the sudden burst of super-human strength! That's what it takes...esp. if you're about to really embarrass yourself! Been there, done that!



Happy Thanksgiving!:cooler:

See ya on the road... :15white:I'm the one that salutes with the left hand instead of the "low wave". :sozzled:



Safe Rides & God Bless!!
