Cool

We have family in China Spring and I laid eyes on that very bike some time ago. Thought to myself, man, that is on great looking color combo. Funny, as I have previously posted on this board, I seriously considered the 16 FJR ES before I bought my Wing. The local dealer I am close to both friends and business could not find one anywhere at the time. I was ready so they got this Wing out of the Honda warehouse in Dallas.

All things considered, I am extremely happy with my choice. Your F6B will run harder than the Wing due to less weight. I tend to have a heavy right hand so cruise control and something not crazy fast is a better choice for me. Comfort is also much more important due to advancing age or that is what I have been told. Enjoy both your rides. Now you have the choice of whatever strikes your fancy.

Welcome back.

Taking Spring Valley Rd from Waco to Moody is a more enjoyable ride than heading down I35, that's for sure. I've done it a hundred times. BTW I bought my 2009 Goldwing from Chad at Bargers Allsports. Enjoyed doing business with him.
Chad is who I dealt with as well! I pushed for one last price concession, via email, and he knocked $2 off, "just to show we have a sense of humor". I countered him by saying I would take the bike, but my final offer was $1 less, "just to show he who laughs last..."! Good guy.

Thank you very much. As I mentioned, I had been looking at both the blue and the white, (my wife hated both colors), so posted a poll over on the F6B forum. The blue was the favorite of about 60% of the voters, but truth be told, it was always second place to me, and if I could get a good deal on a white one, that was going to be my choice.

I'll be back out in Big Bend sometime this year, and most likely will be running the Wing. Here is a pic of the FJR, running back to the Chisos Mountain Lodge from Terlingua a few years ago.

Very sharp. Bike and the scenery!! That area and the Hill Country are 2 of my favorite places to ride and sightsee.
