I asked my Mexican friend to translate and she said:

"Omg, he is saying he got the Goldwing and had no clue how to ride it. He said he needs someone to explain how to shift, and pretty much needs a riding manual that explains all controls and how to ride the bike."

I don't even know how to respond to this. Someone who has no idea of how to ride a motorcycle, really shouldn't be starting out on a GL1500, in my opinion.

Anyone?

Absolutely right, Wing Admin. This is a recipe for a very big disaster. I have seen other people buy a brand new big bike with no riding experience, or experience that was 30 years ago, and then essentially go out and trash the bike or their body on the first ride. Best to get an old, small displacement bike and practice on that for a while before upgrading. Even better is to get some riding experience on a dirt bike, offroading. If you can get proficient at that, you will have much better success on the road.

I would say that if you start with a GoldWing and you manage not to trash the bike or kill yourself, then you should be able to ride anything that has 2 wheels.

Well... you should.... :-)

FYI my first motorcycle ever was a 1987 GL1200A. That was 8 years ago and I was 61 years old. That being said I did have a basic rider course first and that is critical for anyone operating a motorcycle especially a Goldwing. I did not tear up the bike or myself but we had "mishaps" along the way. Would highly recommend this fellow get riding instruction ASAP before going forward.
