My current ride is a 2002 GL1800. I plan on picking up a deuce (as a second bike) this coming spring. I've been riding since I was 15 and just crossed the 300,000 mile mark this past summer. I get tired of all of the brand-bashing that takes place on some of the Goldwing-specific boards so I thought I'd check this place out. I don't care what you ride. The HD is a work of art, in my opinion. I'm not a wrencher and felt that for an everyday ride, a Goldwing would better suit my mechanical aptitude. Anyway, I'm going to surf this site, maybe offer an opinion or two and hopefully learn a ton from you all. Ride safe and take care.
