newbie from down under

She's big :D , She's black :D , She's beautiful :D ,wide padded rearend :D , 1800cc :D and She's all ours :D :D :D . i have wanted one since I test rode a goldwing in the late 80's as a motorcycle mechanic in Melbourne Vic.
Now I own a 2012 Goldwing and the best part is the other half ( wife ) loves it. she enjoys jumping on the bike and hitting the road to parts unknown. we traded a 05 ST1300A with 47K on the clock which were very enjoyable Klms :D . Our first run will be to Cairns 1680 klms from here (1043.90 miles ) we will post some shots of the trip when we have some ;) . anyhow i have had a bit of a look around the site and found some really interesting articles here.

keep the shiny side up

What color? Any options?

The cruise you're talking about sounds excellent. I'm planning one like that, for this summer. I am going to various locations, specifically to where lay lines overlap at mystical power spots. I know, it sounds weird; but I like an extended ride to have a theme.

Hey Bootlace, did you ever work at Brockman in WA? I used to work there myself with a serviceman who went by that name so was wondering....
I'm planning a big trip, about 12 months worth, on my '08, leaving Busselton next week. First stop Ulysses AGM in Mildura then heading north, then whi knows, just follow the sun. Can't wait.
