    Wife and I went to Sarasota yesterday, rode with my brother and his wife. Went to an Amish restaurant for lunch. Nice ride and good food. My brother rides an 08 Goldwing that I have dubbed the "couch rocket" for obvious reasons. Well, as we were coming home on Hwy 62 I noticed my sister in law on the back of his bike. Couldn't believe what I was seeing so I had my wife take a picture. While the GW may not be the original "Geezer Glider", I think Honda has taken the concept to a new level.

    Yea, it is a nice color. He bought the "Pearl white" and it is a pretty bike. Wife and I rode it for awhile on I75..I can say it is wicked fast.

    Yeah, when I was riding my sportbike with my friends from the ol' MSF daze...I recall very fondly how others quickly acclimated to the Luxuro-Wing...the pillion partners would do some pretty outragious things like eating, reading AND sleeping. Gotta love it how quickly your gal took on the "Feather-Wing"...!:p

    Hobbit, my wife doesn't particularly like the Wing. She says it is "almost" as comfortable as our bike but she much prefers the HD. So do I. Brother's bike is nice and I'm sure will give him thousands of miles of service but it doesn't strike the same chords that my bike does, you know? Once again, it is wicked fast though.

    My wife has been known to snooze on the Ultra now and again. I don't understand it but, I can't imagine being the passenger either :D

    Mnultra, I was thinking the same thing...I can hear the next generation GW pilot saying to his pillion partner, "--please put the tray tables in the upright position..."! Me, I like things with a "bit" more road feel...:D
