Hey Sly!!! Saw you on that on Broadway and realized too late it was you or I would have chased you down. Nice bike!

I so disagree, respectfully...

I ride mine everyday, when there's no snow on the ground.

At least wait til drinking hours.


As for you Slygrin, congratulations on the new bike. Just take her down a nice twisty road and scrape the luggage a few times, and that should shut everyone up.

^^^ Can't argue with that, but the luggage is one of the last things to scrape.

Don't ask me how I know...

Yup, that was us.

My AC stands for Air Conditioning of course.

Sitting on the passenger seat while riding a GL1800 gives you all kinds of Air and it feels great. It also works for stretching the legs too.

Who needs highway pegs with a rear seat!

In the last two weeks of 90 degree weather it sure has felt extra good.

You'd have to catch me first.



OK it wouldn't be hard, seemed like the proper response though

I don't know if she'll let me sit on her lap while riding, or any other time for that matter.

Well, hell......all this time I thought you were saying "Gullwing".....what with all this talk of a/c, stereos, cup holders, reverse, a spare tire, seating for 4, airbags, and a tow package, I thought you were getting a Mercedes-Benz with extras!

LMAO!

Nice bike, Mikey, but I think you're gonna need a bigger lift.............

I moved the vise up, think it will fit. I tried to roll it on by myself, couldn't get the back wheel over the ramp. Looks like it will be a 2 person job. If I put the extensions on I might be able to ride it on.

And I will let you know of all the features you listed it only has the stereo and reverse

Pick up that second Bentley yet?

Rode the Guzzi yesterday for the first time after getting the wing, never thought it would ever feel small! It will be interesting switching back a forth between them.

I thought about changing my avatar from a tribute to the classic Italian twins to something more in line with the wing.

Just a suggestion, don't Google Image search "Big Blue Butt" when your wife is standing behind you....
And here I was going to complement your taste is color.......

Do you really need a motorcycle with a coffee maker and toaster?

You bought a snowmobile when you coulda had this right here.

Nice Ride
Mike:

Congrats on the new bike, I too have made a purchase and major change in types of motorcycles I am riding. No I'm not giving up the grocery getters or land missiles, but wanted something that would let "ME" ride lot's of miles and what I have come to find out it best words " not having to compromise" when taking anything short of a day trip.

The Wing does lot's of things very well and you 2 should have a blast putting some miles on it.

Enjoy and hope to ride with you guy's soon.

What did you get? I can't remember if you told me when I saw you a while back. If you did the "old" brain forgot it.

I'm just glad that there are enough different types of bikes out there that everyone can ride what they want.

We headed out tomorrow for our almost annual ride to Winthrop.

Congrats on your new bike. Just don't covert it to a trike... Actually it would look just fine in my garage. I just can't add one to the stable just yet
