Glad to be Aboard

New to Gold Wing, previous sport touring with the R1200 (x3). Before that some cruiser time. Before that what ever an E-4/5..... etc. salary would allow!

Two days into it now and am enjoying the transition.

I perused this site prior to the purchase and the information contained here was very helpful. I felt it was polite to introduce myself so as not be labeled as trolling, Jim

Welcome, Jim


Why not add your hometown in signature and/or public profile. You might acquire some rider friends and enhance your membership here.

Thanks for the recommendation and greetings. I was able to update my location but haven't been able to transfer my album pic to my profile (side left) versus signature (below).

I am located just south of Savannah Georgia which allows for year 'round riding and use my bike as my daily commute. As I enjoyed a cup of coffee this morning I wondered how it must feel to have snow on the ground and being unable to get out with a new bike in the garage. Must be like prom night!

Another welcome - lot of good info here, and some sarcasm in abundance. But we usually reserve both for squids

I have found a good delivery of one typically requires a good dose of the other! Glad to see some fellow swabbies.

I got the red 2016.

While I have to admit BMW offers more toys for the buck I am hoping to decrease my time at the dealer. It never left me stranded and BMW certainly goes above and beyond with warranty support but I just never had that warm and fuzzy with reliability.

Honda won me over with their bullet proof reputation and local dealers if needed.
