Since I can only vote once, I placed my vote for my #2 son, as he is not a board member. He spends too much time wearing tires and burning fuel. You may find it of interest, and maybe not. He's been on his GL1800 for a well over a year. Several members on here have ridden with him and comment on his age and level headed riding. He began on a 650 Savage, up to a VTX1300R, on to a 1800R, and finally at 23 years old he made (as he has said) his last motorcycle choice. I guess I did do some things right. BTW, I'm 62, prowd of it, riding since 1961, and 100% on Goldwings since their introduction in 1975.
