    There isn't any reason for any one to waste their time looking at a new wing, and going to the trouble to look for the best price...just send me the money you would have spent on the new wing, and I will take the time out of my busy life to buy the wing, and I will contract you every now and then, to let you know how well your money was spent.

    This is gettin bad, there is no 2011, won't need one in 2012, and we aren't allowed to buy one in in 2013 or 2014. Looks like before I get a new one it will prolly be a GL2500. It may even have to be registered through FAA.

    If it ain't a WING, it's just another motorcycle.

    Lime Green??? Damn, I thought that was just a rumor for the colors on a 2014!
    Think I'll put my pre pre pre order in as well!
    Lime Green! Happy days!!!!!
    Uhhh just one thing....... I'm red/green color blind so what does lime green look like? It's kind of red right? And red is kinda like orange isn't it?
    Oh well, doesn't matter! I'm just glad they are going to have Lime Green! I had inside information from my dealer that I would not like the colors on the 2014! Guess he doesn't know so much after all!

    PS..... for those that tend to take life very seriously, please understand that this is pure jibberish. Not just my post, ( thats real) but the thread itself.
