New Wing owner checking in.

Hello all,
My name is Dave. I have been riding 45 years and during that time I have owned dozens of bikes. I started on dirt imports, then went to street, spent 30 years riding Harleys and I just now purchased my first Goldwing after riding my buddies 2010 GL1800. My last touring bike was an 04 Ultra that I unloaded with almost 200k on it. On December 28th I was at the dealer getting my V-Strom inspected. They rolled my wing past me as I was waiting. It was still dripping from the wash after uncrating and assembly. I looked up, said stop, I want that, I love the color, how much do the paperwork. I got the deer in the headlight look from the sale guy. Now I own it. I hope to learn a lot here. I love this bike, so far it has lived up to its reputation as the king of touring bikes. I hope it treats me as good as I'm told it will.
