Some of the decent takeoff parts from My connie are going up on the for sale forum. I'm leaning towards a Goldwing as a replacement, because of my knee's limited range of motion, so another sport tourer isn't in the cards, I'm afraid.

I read good things about the new Goldwing. But boy are they expensive! I myself am still too young, fit, flexible and sexy, so no 'wing for me for at least another decade  :thumbs: Good luck on yours though, and would like to see pics when you get it.

Maybe in the spring. I still don't feel up to riding yet. Hopefully, the reviews are right about the new one being more of a big sport tourer are correct.

An update on my healing process. It appears my knee that took a smack on the fuel tank is not healing as expected, so I'm seeing an orthopedic dude on Monday to discuss my options. Also, it's kind of weird looking, and that's not good either I suppose.
I've stripped all kinds of pretty useful stuff on the scoot, and put it on the sale section.

At age 49 I feel like "weird looking" is OK as long as it works pretty well. (I guess that's a variation on Form Follows Function)

Hopefully you can get it there :thumbs:

I hear you.... my "49" is almost done and although most everything LOOKS great, nothing seems to feel that way anymore.

Having surgery on my bendy part (easy boys, it's my knee) on Thursday. All the PT i did so far was just to build up my supporting muscles. The quad on my right leg is much smaller than my left, which is a little disturbing. My right leg was always stronger in my athletic days. Doc is going to root around in there, and remove any loose tissue floating around, and try to smooth out the edges of the meniscus pad, ow whatever that donut thingy is called.

On another note. I've sat on. Revved the engine, and monkeyed with the buttons on the 2018 Goldwings, so that makes me an expert. Ask Me anything. :-)

Ask Me anything.

Ya'll going to buy one?

On a more serious note, good luck with the follow-up surgery & recovery efforts. :banana :banana :banana Hope everything is successful so you can & will ride on 2 wheels again, whatever the brand.
