New guy here

Hello all you Wingers and Season's Greetings.
I have been riding Yamahas for some time now...my last Honda was a '96 ST1100.
I feel it's time to get the ultimate touring platform and after 8 yrs with a Yammi Royal Star Venture, I am looking FW to a good handling/steering machine once again! Cheers.

An excellent choice. Although being from BC, don't you folks have like 9 months of winter and 3 months of bad Ice Hockey? When do you actually get a chance to ride a bike?

Hey...Welcome to the forum...If you can't get your question answered here...most likely there isn't one. Good luck finding a Wing

Merry Christmas

John

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders

Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

Thanks for the welcome everybody. I plan to check out the Honda Demo Days in the spring and hope to test ride a wing....buying a '17 if all goes well, Cherry Red.
Besides the RSV that I have had since '09, I have a '15 FJR 1300ES which is my fun bike and I plan on keeping that one for a long time yet.
I am hoping that the Wing will inspire immediate confidence in me, what with it's more than decent handling prowess. The RSV is quite ponderous.
The excellent weather protection will be great for the long rides we take....our riding season up here starts in April and ends in October. While it's cold in the off season (so far, over 50 cms of snow has fallen this month), the summers can be blistering hot...35-40' Celsius. On that note, is there enough air movement in the cockpit to cool things down?
Thanks again !

As far as we know cms stands for can't measure stuff
And Celsius !! Is that star in the sky or something ?
BTW of ya wanna test ride a wing , come to Wi the keys are always in mine . Trust me on this , I do not care who rides it as there is absolutely nothing anybody can do to it that I have not done ,,,, at least twice already
