Boys and Girls,
Per RK's request, here is a picture of our new GW and I have named her Thelma. Best wishes and safe riding to my friends here on the forum.

Best of luck with the new bike!!
That is easily the best looking GW I have ever seen. Should be easy to spot if we ever share the road. I hope you share some of your trips with us in the future, if not in person then here on the forum. Be safe and enjoy.

Thanks RK! No riding this past weekend due to frickin monsoon weather here in Missouri. Now we have Tropical Storm Bill sitting over the top of us dumping more rain on our heads. If only we could save some of this rain for August when everything dries up. I sure hope our paths cross someday so I can shake your hand in person.


Dave, Lesli, and Thelma.

Very nice. Good looking bike. Top rated touring bike for 18-20+ years. I'd thought about one once but to stout for my 5'7 frame. Why i went with ultra low. Good luck have fun.

Hey just checking in with my good friends in the HRF. My wife and I are riding the Goldwing somewhere almost every weekend. I have to admit that the GW doesn't stirreth my soul like our Harley did, but it is much easier to handle and backing it into the garage with the electric reverse is priceless. As my wife says, I have turned into a Geezer Goldwing Glider! The weather here in SW Missouri is perfect for riding and the fall colors are beautiful. Hope everyone is doing well and keeping 2 wheels up at all times.

Hey TI,
great to hear from you. I still think your GW is the nicest one I've seen, love the color scheme. As for HD vs. GW each one has its strong points. I always thought how cool it would be to drop a honda motor into a road king chassis.
As for the geezer, there are bold riders and old riders but not many old bold riders... be happy you still can get out there!! Keep the shiny side up!! Keep in touch.
