I have just purchased a 2015 GL1800 nav/airbag Wing. Been after a Wing for a while and finally found one where the price matched my expectations. I have traded a K1600 GTLE for the wing. I have owned two K1600's and I certainly don't have a bad word for them. The wing is a different bike, different experience. I ride with my wife as pillion the majority of the time and will probably do around 7000 miles per year (which compared to you guys in the states I know is a walk in the park). I aim for one European tour per year, this years being to Lake Como, Northern Italy in May. Who knows what after that.
One of the attractions of the Wing,believe it or not is the lack of technology and what appears to be the possibility of home servicing, something I have not done for a while due to the complex nature of the BMW.
I would however like to bluetooth the audio/satnav to my bluetooth headsets. Does anyone have any experience of the SENA Freewire kit which is specific to the Goldwing? I am struggling to find a stockist in the UK and therefore information re its effectiveness is a bit thin on the ground.
I did peruse this forum a lot prior to committing to the Wing and I have to say the community appears stacked with knowledgeable owners that put to rest any jitters I had before buying.
Anyway, I collect the bike in a couple of weeks (dealer servicing etc) and looking forward to many miles on the bike and continuing to feed my interest with the huge variety of topics on this forum.
