    Default This site sucks!!!

    Not really, the opposite, now I want a Goldwing bad. Long story short, sold my motorcycle a few weeks ago to get a Honda side by side. I did it for the kids, because I was not riding the motorcycle that much. Blah, blah, blah...........I am back lurking at this site, and now the Goldwing itch is really really really bad. I am sick with motorcycle fever, need help. Any suggestions???

    Get another one.

    I've had three different model years and was always sad after I sold each of them.

    Get a Trike and take the kids for a ride(of coarse,one at a time).
    They will get a kick out of that, I know my grand kids do.
