1 week away from picking up my painted bike at Honda of Russellville

Bike is starting as a new 2016 ABS silver goldwing. Painting all the silver, ( not telling what color, you'll see next Monday)
leaving all the black parts as is.

They are adding at 22% discount, vertical hitch, ergo III in black, transformer boards in black, ( just became available in black) utopia back rest, black Honda led spoiler, cubby cup holder in black.

Then riding to Knoxville to electrical connection, where Lewis will install these items
Single shooter fog lights in ION
4 function spoiler insert
Heat seat amplifier
Dash switch illuminator
DRL switchback with smoke lense
Power plug in fairing
2 power plugs in trunk
Fuel cap harness
Roundel emblem illuminator
LED light bulbs
Ground loop isolator.
Will be nice having them install their own items.

At home I'm taking in the car on the way to get the bike,

BMG zodiac jacket
GPS sunvisor
Optic armor windshield -2 tinted/vented
Rain suit
S3 radar detector
Baker hand wings
Shoei helmet imminent 2X
Wife's helmet/ gloves
Cup holder for passenger
Pak it rak
Jeans with Kevlar
Honda bra
Convex mirror

Have I missed anything? Lol

Son getting married next Saturday, then starting in Galveston, TX, we get bike next Monday, heading to Knoxville to electrical connection, WV, for a few weeks, then NE USA, Niagra Falls, west through Canada, ND, SD, south back to Galveston, Tx.

This is why I drive a school bus, to travel in the summers.

All wife's idea, believe it or not,
last summer was our 30th, wife had cancer, couldn't go anywhere, so we're making up for it this year.

Congrats on the new bike and the trip. Congrats to the wife as a survivor. I am going to take a shot at the new color for the bike. Yellow?

I'm going out on a limb here. Because of your wife having cancer last year, and you mentioned it was all her idea that the mystery color will be Pink...the recognized worldwide cancer awareness color. If it is, ride it proud...you have a survivor back there on the seat with you. Hot Pink and black are a great color combination.

I've seen where Schroaders did paint a wing pink. I'd have to get with pepto​ bismol​ as a sponsor.
Wouldn't​ mind it painted like a big ole beautiful USA flag, my birthday coming up on June 14, flag day. ( Also your presidents birthday)

I'll say that because gloss black hasn't been available on an F6B for awhile, that'll be the new colour.
And beep your horn 4 times when you pass through Winnipeg on your trip.
I'll buy you a beer or 6.
