Congrats. I felt the same way when I first got my GL1800. Although my first rides were definitely not the longest rides of my life, they were the longest I had enjoyed for some time due to tendonitis in my back. I can once again ride full days instead of just full half hours, :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: So, I know just how you feel.

Wishing you lots of those rides

That is a beautiful part of the country to ride. If you haven't been there yet Zion and Bryce national parks makes nice rides.
25,000 is nothing for this bike you should get many years and smiles out of it.

Congrats and enjoy.

Congratulations for your new toy :) You'll surely love it.

We made this tour last year with rented Goldwing from LA. Something realy very special, amazing and unforgetable, specialy for one European, habituated to very different look of countryside. :)

Ride safe.
