Biggrin Honda Goldwing

Well, I guess I am officially a senior, senior citizen. I bought a Honda Goldwing so I can cruise in style. Been wanting a big bike for a long time. However, I still have my Vespa LX150 that I bought new in 2007. I have a whopping 2,200 miles on it. I just use it for a quick trip into town, or on hot days, i will ride the country roads to cool down.

Naw, lots of youngsters ride a "Road Sofa"....when you can't hold up a 2-wheeler anymore you're officially a senior citizen and have to resort to a trike.

This isn't a trike. You can't own one of those until you move to a mobile home retirement park in Florida.

Those babies are amazing. A former neighbor had one. The thing just sat there and purred at idle. And when he took off, it sounded quiet but like it had much more than adequate power. Enjoy it.

I know, Road Sofa is a term for a Goldwing just like Geezer Glide is for Harley baggers.
