Maybe while towing it behind a truck.

Sure I'll validate your 'Wing parking permit, but only on one condition:

You pull a single rung trailer with the new Guzzi V7 on it.

That way when you encounter nice roads and cool people you can offload and go scratch for a bit. Ya need something to talk about while sipping on your frap on the slab.

You know, I kid around alot bashing the Wangers...but having ridden a couple of the new 1800's and a bunch on a 1500...there is nothing like them for 2-up, mile eating days.
We rented one back in '08 out of Nashville and spent three days riding through the south, Arkansas, Alabama, Mississipi, Tennessee...it was awesome for a change to slow down and see the sights and meet the people of the back roads. (Cue banjo music.)

Now, we did manage to scrape a few pegs on the twisty stuff, and those bikes will hustle through the corners when cropped....love the adjustable air suspension....though my wife did fall asleep once and asked me to pick up the pace. (How aften does that happen?

Mike...all jokes aside, if you test ride one you will be amazed. The 1800's ride like a sports bike & have oodles of power. The size & weight of the machine go away as soon as you roll forward.

If I rode two-up alot for long distances a Goldwing would be my first choice. We test rode a used one at Chet's in Quincy & thought long and hard about buying one. It's one of the few bikes made that really hold thier re-sale value.

At one time. Chet's was one of the highest volume Goldwing dealers in the US! Stop in & talk to Rob the owner....I bet he'll let you try one out.

I've ridden several 1800's & 1500's. I don't think you're crazy at all.

I called Chet's last week. They are out of wings. Sold all the 12's and wasn't sure when they'd get any 13's. Can't do anything until next year anyway.

I can't really put much into this conversation (because I have a olderwing) except:
to the 500mi comment
I've heard that the 1800s are rockets
U could talk to BluesBros about them, but a guy who has 2 might be little biased.

I sit here thinking about the thread on the Goldwing forum reading "Someone slap me I am thinking about buying a CBR" the comments might read

1) Your back is going to kill you.
2) You will have to stop riding to enjoy your coffee.
3) Those earbuds and scala communicators will drive you crazy.
4) You can speed past a cop on a Goldwing..On a CBR you will get ticketed in the parking lot.
5) What about those cold mornings without heated grips, seats and air vents.
6) Dude you will get monkeybutt riding over 150 miles.
7) You will have to FedEx your camping gear and accessories.
You must want to leave the wife home as two up wears ya out.
9) I thought Goldwings came after the CBR midlife crisis.
10) At least you aren't buying a Harley with a batwing fairing.
