Were I to ever go that route even though the new wing is quite impressive, for a true sport mega touring machine I would have to go with a 1250RT.
Enjoy your GoldWing, yes you can hang out here but each time you say something you have to pay me 10 cent ...View attachment 281478 First of all. I kept my 2012 Vee. I’ve had a dream since my boys were little of doing the cross country thing with them when they were old enough. So now we have 3 capable bikes, and if the vaccine can get in our arms, we should be able to this summer. My wife encouraged this purchase because when she sat on the GoldWing she got excited about how comfortable the pillion was. So, win-win. Got to take it out yesterday for about 3 hours before it started getting to cold. It’s a 2018 and it’s fantastic. It is the DCT which is strange, I keep grabbing for the nonexistent clutch. But I really can’t believe how nimble and small that huge bike feels. Just figured I would share some kinda cool news in the doldrums of winter. Am I still allowed to hang out in here with you all?
DCT would be my choice as well. As far as an old mans bike, I think it's generally accepted that is who buys them and I don't see that as a negative.I can as
I can assure you the latest Wing is no old mans bike, I would LOVE to have the new DCT!!!!!
Approaching old biker age, who am I kidding hah!DCT would be my choice as well. As far as an old mans bike, I think it's generally accepted that is who buys them and I don't see that as a negative.
1. Old bikers know what makes a good bike! V-Strom is also viewed as an old mans bike, and from the events i've been to that's generally true.
2. Old bikers can afford a 30k bike
3. Old bikers have the time/money to properly travel on such a beautiful bike
Dual sports are a gas. I'm 67 and love my WR250R. Put 8500 miles on it in 2 years including some week or longer BDR trips with camping gear. It's a plus that I can pick it up when I drop it in the woods, lol.Approaching old biker age, who am I kidding hah!
I would go smaller and lighter than my 1000 Strom not bigger and heavier.
I can see myself on a dual sport when I'm 80...
