You sell this bike? And if not, are you still alive?

Unfortunately the first gentleman that looked at it fell in love and paid the asking price without the customary " haggle ". I say unfortunate because, deep down, I didn't really want to let it go ! I advertised it and then left the ad up on the PC so that the wife would see that I " tried ". I can't complain too much because when I purchased the GW , I never mentioned it to her, I just bought and brought it home !!! So I guess I'm lucky to still have my skin !!!!

So what did your wife hate about the bike? The fact that you bought it without her permission or was it something on/about the bike that she really didn't hit it off with? I don't know any ladies that don't like being on the back of a goldwing so i am interested to hear why it didn't work out for you and the other half?

I'd be curious also, without getting too personal, that is.

I bought the GL1000 without the wife. She knew that my son and I were going to look at it, but she didn't know I bought it until I texted her and asked her to hook up the trailer to her Jeep and we were on our way home to get it. She's looking forward to it being on the road.

Now, when I bought my F-250 a couple weeks ago, I did take the wife along to test drive it and asked her input. Sometimes, it's just the right thing to do. 8-)
