Sounds like you will need to get a rain suit. Welcome to the site and congrats on the Wing. Next to the red faster colour I like that green colour scheme.

Very nice looking bike, The rain gives you time to get familiar with the ride and a chance at those little maintenace things. Wing admin has an excellent post deatiling the timing belt change :D

Very nice bike. I too am a new ('88 GL1500) Goldwing owner and I'm also getting some necessary maintenance items done.

I've got the same color. Love it. I'm thinking about getting a trailer the same color.

Ride safe.
