Goldwings are actually pretty nice....after I bought my Harley and had it for awhile, I swore I would NEVER buy another...too much maintenance...until I started doing it myself...

Mine is not a loud bike...original pipes...didn't want to attract the attention of those "loud bike haters" out there and get run off the road...had enough close calls without it!!:)

Jim;

Wish you lived closer to Texas. I have a 100th anniversary Ultra classic in the silver paint scheme I would give you a great price on. Great bike for long rides, with the CD,CB, and radio, but it eats brake pads and rear tires like you wouldn't believe.I get about 6,000 miles out of a rear tire, and about 9,000 out of a set of brake pads.

At 62 years old it's not my riding style, it's the weight of the bike. Of course that's what makes it such a good long distance bike.

Yikes!!! I got over 20,000 on my rear tire...still going on my front (over 30,000)...but I heard that the rear was only supposed to last between 9,000 and 12,000.
