Oldewing's New"er" wing 06 Comfort, Navi

Picking up a lightly used 06 later tomorrow, 35000 miles, one owner. Stepping up from a herd of 1100 and 1000 wings. Active over at NGWClub.com with my 4 banger' bikes. But started over here for the new baby..

Got her home. All dealer service's done with records. Yippee, Poor guy paid 173.00 for oil changes. 1275.00 for a oil change and two tires

safe bet I won't be doing that. Much different ride than my trusty 82 1100, real goes when you ask it too. Looking forward to having a lot of fun with it.


Used to wrestle with my Demons,

Now we just hug.

Here it is, first day that I rode to work. I do have an advantage, I get to park inside, and less than 15 second walk to my office

Picked up Honda oil and K and N filters for the shelf in the shop, first 2 oil changes taken care of. Also picked up a fork brace, always had them on my other wings, seems right. Day 3, and still stupid happy. And fully insured thru Allstate, 426 a year. Twice what the 1100 was, but a much more expansive bike.

Last step of the "new" bike stuff today, picked up the title and got "real" plates. Oh, and took the wife to dinner on the new scoot too. Least I could do, Eh?

Gave her a coat of wax, and put disk brakes all the way around for the gent I bought the bike from. That was part of the deal...was not much trouble anyways. And found the front brake light switch is out. Will look into it on Sunday.

A jug of new Honda 10w40 oil and a k and n filter. Installed my flashing LED brake light to the rear fender (put it where the stock reflector goes) found wires first time, yea. All the wiring on my other Goldwings has been thru many many owners and changes. So opening up a virgin harness is something that I am not a custom to.



36102 miles


And off to Cleveland in the morning for it's first real trip.

Put on 1478 miles, went to the Tail of the Dragon (yes the little dragon sticker is on the rear fender) and did the Skyway too plus most of the Blue Ridge on the way home, great time and real nice weather for a change.


38927 miles.


Saw 47.2 on one tank, all freeway though, and 34.6, dragon and the skyway..........
