2012 Goldwing demo

I ride a 2008 airbag Wing that because of a bad back had to get a custom Works Performance rear shock as well as a custom Hartco seat which moves me back 1 1/2". I'm 6'3" so need leg room. This bike was crate new last year so I bought it at a discount at Hollister Honda, a Honda Powerhouse. Soooooo......stopped by the dealer today and they had a demo 2012. One item I had read was Honda changed the suspension. Seems they modified the rear AND front suspension for a great improvement. I would not have a back problem on a 2012 Wing after installing my custom seat. The ride is much more compliant and smooth.
Soooooo.....call Hollister Honda if you are in the market for a much improved Wing. Several out of state buyers have already done so according to Neal the Wing sales guy.
Oh, I may consider looking into the inners of the 2012 forks to see if they would work in my 2008.
