I'm picking up my first ever Wing tomorrow in Duluth MN, I've ridden a shadow for 7 years and have not ridden at all in the last 3 years. My new wife wants me to get a new wing to go on trips with!!
I'm getting an 05 silver non ABS....going down now to test ride and check it out, but I can't get insurance today, so I'll have to bring it home tomorrow. I've enjoyed reading this forum and hope to contribute to it much!

Hi Pianome and welcome, on behalf of the sane members of the site. Please humour the Redwing, he is under this illusion about red goldwings being the fastest. I mean it is great to hear that you are joining the ranks, you must be very excited tonight, but I guess you couldn't get a black one? Not to worry, in time you could trade her in for the fastest , ablack one!!

Enjoy the friendly banter here, and the excellent technical expertise on offer for free from some really knowlegable guys on the tech forum.

Do post a pic of your bike when you get her, once you have been for that 1st exillerating ride!:):)

Why is it , it is only the black and red blokes get involved in this colour "debate"? I guess the others just accept that theirs are slower:baffled::goofygrin:

Well I took the SILVER Wing for a spin around the parking lot and I must say....WOW!
Very responsive!!! Very smooth shifting! Didn't get out of third but I was suprised with the power!!! They will not let me out on the highway till I buy, but I can tell that this is the cruiser for me! Is the $525.00 for the extra 4 year warranty worth it? Seems like it would be. I got them to throw in 2 free helmets, intercom system and two Goldwing riding jackets. With the extra warrenty it is $16,096 That is the best talking down I could do! I couldn't get insurance today, so I will be picking it up on Thursday evening!!:clapper:

To prove that Black is the fastest color, I have a friend who has a red bike. From a standing start or accelerating out of a corner my black bike is much faster than his red one. Empirical proof!

As an avid BLACK supporter, I shouldn't be the one to ask this, but what bike has your friend got ?

You had to ask didn't you! It's a 1982 V45 750 Sabre. It should be able to keep up with a '77 Goldwing since it's a much lighter bike with 4 valves per cylinder, and in top running condition, but it's red and it just couldn't.

Pianome- Welcome from another newcomer. Man, do I ever remember the day I picked up my first wing. Bought it from an old fart who couldn't hold it up anymore (!), rode it 700 miles back home through torrential rains. My face hurt for days from the grin that didn't go away! JP



Now I'm an old fart, but still ridin'.........
