Well I guess the wife and I are committing to this Goldwing thing a little more. We sold our other wing and have been eyeing this one all winter. So last weekend we drove down to Russellville AR, put some cash down to have one built like this one. We will fly down next Saturday to Little Rock and they are picking us up at the airport so we can drive ours back home. We're excited and hope the 23rd will be a nice, dry & warm spring day for a 330 mile drive home.

If the weather is iffy just take the long way home, so what if it takes a month or two! Very nice looking Wing!

It's a black wing that they have trimmed in orange. We test drove a CSC and the Roadsmith. I really liked the looks of the CSC.. However the wife and I both thought the Roadsmith has a smoother ride. Might of been how they were set up and not a fair comparison. Anyhow we went with the Roadsmith.

Seebeechief - I called down today and told them to add those arm rests. She always wanted them on our 2 wheeled wing but just never bought them. Least I could do since I added the Garmin 665 to it too. They said the bike is ready other than the options they now need to install.

We've been watching the weather everyday. So far it looks like it will be sunny and 50 in AR and drop to 40 here in MO. It's probably 7+ hours if we drive it straight. You can't make much time on RT 7 through AR. It's a beautiful ride. We were planning on taking our time and make 2 days out of it. Especially since we probably won't get out of the dealership until about 1pm. It just depends on the snow shower forecast on Sunday on how much we goof around on Saturday.

My wife was always uncomfortable on our bike but I think she is more excited than I am and feels very comfortable when we took our test rides....

Take your time and make it a two day trip. Or three! Take the backroads and smell the roses. You did good on the armrests! Babycakes and I will be going up to Mountain Home to see her Dad in June, then up through Iowa to the Spam Museum before heading over to Deadwood for our annual convention. I'm going to ride this Wing until I can't hold it up, then trike it out. If I don't get the "itches" for a fine new one like yours! Envy is a terrible thing. I try to avoid it, but sometimes a man just can't help it. Ride Safe.
