Red face Goldwing newbie

Not new to touring bikes, but just purchased my first Goldwing, 2010 ABS model. So far I found it to be a beast. Will take some getting uto the different riding position. Have a lot to learn about it so I am sure I will be asking questions.

Congrats from Washington state!

I have my first Wing. We ride 2 up.

When we first bought it, I rode 1 up for about 1,500 miles before I let my wife on. The Wing and I had to make friends. I remember reading the manual twice. Maybe I'm slow, but there was so much to learn.

We did make friends. My wife and I since then been all over the Pacific Northwest and most of the US west coast since then.

A great series of adventures are ahead!
