Hello from Connecticut!
Hello and Happy New Year to all. Newb from the northeast here. Will be getting my first Wing here in the next couple of months. Most certainly going the pre-owned route to take advantage of previous owner's investment in accessories and upgrades. Seems to be a select few around and a good time to buy. I've owned a GT550/GS850G/GS1000S/XJ900 and GTS1000 (RADD). I'm pretty much over the sportbike scene and looking forward to some real comfort and long trips as well as contributing here in some small way. Been on the fence about a GL1500 vs GL1800 but decided to go with the newest Wing I can afford after reading much here. Will want cruise/heat/progressive springs and I know my way around a tool box. A bit disappointed that major suspension upgrades are needed relatively early on these bikes but will factor that in for my budget. Is there an acceptable upgrade path vs. expense from the experienced riders here? Am I looking at a $2K Traxxion upgrade or can I get by for less?
