Re: Wingnuts: Why Goldwing owners SUCK!

The Honda segment of "Twist The Throttle" has a nice piece on the Goldwing, design, engineering, manufacturing, history etc. I must say I have a new appreciation for this machine now. Complexity rivals/exceeds an automobile.

If it helps any, the first Goldwing was designed as a "muscle" bike.

Here it's the BMW's, Harleys, and to some extent Goldwings. You wanna have a toy that costs more than my annual salary, kewl. You want to delude yourself into thinking you're a biker, kewl. You want us all to think you're kewl, while we know you're a douche? Kewl.

But get out of my WAY g*ddamit ... they are ALL over the road, big as a bus, and the brains of a bus driver. Let me take your bike out of it's misery, i'll look after it, and ride it, a lot. Please?
Thank you! All exept for owning a Goldwing....or a Harley...but f**k yeah I'll take a BMW.

Re: Wingnuts: Why Goldwing owners SUCK!

...I should have added that to me, a bike's a bike. They're all cool in their own way, and to each their own. But they are NOT toys, they are vehicles of the road, and any rider worthy of one should take the time to learn to ride the d@mned thing right. That doesn't mean taking the $30,000 annual bonus and running out to buy a Honda Goldwing just to show up someone's buds. Anyone I know who takes in seriously learns to ride on an appropriate starter bike, takes the time to get comfortable and aware, ATGATT etc., and moves up from there. Sure, we all want to be cool and have something to be proud of, but we all know the risks and responsibilities involved.

Many Goldwing owners do not suck and have earned their ride, and are some of the coolest guys on the road. I could see myself touring in style on one of those birds some day. It's the clowns that want to buy an attitude that run me down.
