I live near Camrose, Alberta. Live on a farm so I have about a mile of gravel to ride on before getting to pavement. Once I get off the gravel, it is a great ride. Thanks for the welcome. :)

I never thought of a goldwing as a dual sport bike!! :D

Welcome to the club, riding on gravel every time you ride the bike must help improve your riding skills and probably warms you up quite quickly.. :o

My brother lives about two hours away from you, outside a small town in the middle of nowhere.

When I first tried my Wing on gravel I was petrified - but I've come to trust it, and as long as you keep the speed up, it does gravel, dirt, grass, mud, sand, etc. quite well.

My wing is the biggest damn enduro I have ever ridden, just took some time to get used to it.

I agree with Road Rouge, gravel is a big larning curve, The wing seems to like it...It is me that is hanging on.
