Wingnuts: Why Goldwing owners SUCK!

Lazyboy. Thats what I call gigantic cruisers with 2 tons of chrome, those gynecologist footrests, suitcase sized saddlebags, AC, cd player...you get the picture.

Anyways, today as I drove my car home from work(a bright green convertible blaring heavy metal) I come up to an intersection that I frequent in my hometown. Im on the main road and to my right is a some what rundown shopping center. Also to my right are three bikers in the exiting lane waiting to pull right onto the main road.

The leader of the pack is a small framed man in his 40's with with a baby blue polo shirt, khaki shorts, and what I can only assume are penny loafers. Attached to his shiny new 3/4 helmet is a helicopter pilot styled headset. He was sitting atop of a brand new Honda Goldwing with all the spaceship-esque styling and big rig chrome you would expect from such a bike.

I should have known to prepare for stupidity to follow after seeing the leader of this pack's feet scuffing frantically against the pavement as he struggled to stop his own bike. After seeing the fear in his eyes I dared not look away.

With him was a woman, and in the back of the pack was an obese man in similar atire. All of them on brand new Goldwings. The leader and the woman behind him pull out of the shopping center and head on there merry way.

Just then the light turns green and I start to drive keeping my eyes on the fatman and his two wheeled RV. Without even glancing my way he pulls right out in front of me not noticing my crayola green convertible with the top down blaring Avenged Sevenfold. He heard my horn though and he spaztically jerked the bike to the right almost running onto the slightly elevated sidewalk and into pedestrians.

These are no doubt the same oblivious snobby and soft cagers that pull out in front of me in their Lexus' and BMW's when I'm riding without care or consequence. WINGNUTS AND LAZYBOYS MAKE ME SICK! Thanks for reading, I feel better. Cheers

Re: Wingnuts: Why Goldwing owners SUCK!

Actually my Dad(who rides a wing) is an everyday workaholic that rides whenever he gets the chance. I understand the frustration....but lets not sterotype here.

btw -I actually had a chance to ride one last weekend for a friend who bought one in Aztec, NM, but needed someone to pick it up for him. Not everday you see a 132 lb 23 yr old piloting one of these. And yes, reverse is a good thing :-)

NO, lets stereotype. I vented on my thread about digitally punching people in the face, and my post got deleted. If you can keep your venting on this site and voice your opinion without it being removed, go for it. screw goldwingers

Re: Wingnuts: Why Goldwing owners SUCK!

Yeah, it's sooo easy to be jealous of such a fine work of engineering genius and luxury that with the right rider aboard can smoke a sport bike in the twisties...


Yes, that scraping sound you hear are the boards dragging.

Re: Wingnuts: Why Goldwing owners SUCK!

Oddly, I also had a bike run a stop sign and pull out right in front of me today. Wasn't a Goldwing, but some naked sporty bike, the pilot had long flowing blond hair and (once she passed me) a really, really nice tuckus. Couldn't get her to stop and talk, though...
