Another new/old member

Post by donmitt » Wed Jun 01, 2016 8:59 am

I've been a member for some time but haven't introduced my self. I ride an 06 wing that was bought in Montana when my not so reliable BMW stranded me. It was in the dealers show room when I got the broke bike there. My friend (who was riding a wing) said "there's your solution". We both laughed about that but a week later and the part needed (had to be shipped from Germany and was held up by customs)wasn't there I had to make a decision. So I rode home on that very Wing I saw when I first came into the shop. And I never had a more comfortable ride.

Welcome Don (a bit late, as was your introduction). BMW used to be the top of the quality possibilities back in the 60's and 70's, but Honda then pulled up their socks and began making large scale motorcycles. I won't say Goldwings are better than BMWs, but they appear a tad more reliable as of late. (barring brake and Airbag recalls for the Goldwings, LMAO)
