Hello from British Columbia, Canada. I have joined this forum in the hopes of getting a better understanding of the Goldwing. What may surprise some members is that I don't own one of these bikes although I am currently considering the purchase of a latest generation Goldwing (2018-21). While not new to riding, I am at the point in my life where touring comfort has moved up in my priorities and I'm hoping that this is the bike to address it. I'm currently riding a 2002 Honda VTX 1800C that has provided me with over 100k km of trouble free riding. It has taken me across Canada twice and through a good portion of Western and Northern USA without incident. This level of dependability and the fact that I like the looks of the Wing are a couple more reasons for my interest. I am quite certain that I will purchase a "bagger" as my wife has her own ride (H/D Heritage gasp) so rarely there will be a passenger. I look forward to tapping into the membership knowledge and ask for your patience should my queries seem too basic. Good riding to all.
