Life Post-Wing

Post by tom84std » Sun Sep 28, 2014 8:27 am

My friend DFWM took over my old '84 and it reduced me to the VTX and the BSA. The VTX is a good bike. Built like anything Honda builds, good and reliable. It's a heavy thing. 750 pounds and it's got a monster engine. I get on my BSA, at half the weight it feels a little like a hotrod moped! I do miss the Goldwing a little but I still have good bikes and the lower center of gravity makes things a little easier. The '84 while older, is just as sound and just as reliable as it ever was. I know he's enjoying riding it as much as I did.

The good news is, should you ever decide to get back into a Goldwing, there are plenty available to choose from that won't bust the bank wide open. Lately, I've been considering another "cruiser" kind of bike for short hops.. like a ZL1000 or similar... until I get it figured out, I'll hold on to the wing...

As long as you're riding, you're riding... and that's what is important.
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

Ya, totally agreed.....just keep riding, that is what counts.

When I rode my Vulcan, that was a 650lb bike, and it felt heavy in handling slow compared to the wing, and the wing goes so straight and solid when riding.....just keep riding, that is what is important. Don't let the grass grow under your feet ;)
