New pics. Got My Goldwing home. It was a chilly ride!
« on: February 10, 2019, 02:48:22 pm »
I figured to move on to a ride with a little less of a tucked riding position after the wreck, so I finally got a new Wing. It's the DCT model with a few extras, including the airbag system. Went to Niehaus Cycles in Litchfield, IL to buy it, and they are good folks to deal with. Can't wait for some good weather, so I can go back, and ride it home.

Congrats on the new bike!  The sun is shining out here with a balmy 50 degrees, a shame I can’t go enjoy it right now.  (Recovering from a tonsillectomy). Should be out riding in a week or less. 

Question, what does DCT stand for?
2009 GTR 1400 ABS, 48k miles, AMSOIL synthetic 10W-40 (since new), AMSOIL synthetic 75W-90 final drive (since new). Helibar Horizons, Symtec heat demon grips, V-Stream windscreen, Mountain Runner Flash, Brian’s low fuel eliminator farkle, ST2 smart brake module and smart turn system, Two Brothers Black Series M5 w/P1X decibel killer.

Ouch! Hope the scratchiness is past, and You are feeling better! It's colder n a mofo here.

DCT = Dual Clutch Transmission. It'll function as a manual with paddle shifters on the handlebars, or fully automatic, with different shift points depending on the mode selected. And it's a seven speed. I'm still learning about it, but this is in my opinion, a game changer in motorcycle performance.

Congrats on the bike!  Love the red!  Rode one of the std transmission models in Evansville.  Went with a buddy to Clarksville to CC Powersports so he could ride the dual clutch models.  I didn't ride that one.  The dealership directed him to ride up 65 a couple of miles and turn around and come back.  I just hate 65 so I just followed on my son's C14.  The new wings are really really nice.  Really liked the seat on the 30 mile ride I took.  Wondering if that seat is as comfortable after a few hundred miles as it was in 30.

Me too about the seat. It seems pretty good! I expect I'll get a good feel for it when I ride it home from Niehaus. Thanks for the kind words.

Hey, I loved mine the whole ten years I owned it. I'd have another one if the wreck hadn't messed up the ol knee. I just needed a little lest bend. The airbag really just makes me feel better.

Congrats!  :thumbs:

Jamie', please stick around and give us occasional feedback on the new wing. I know it will be tempting to wander off to new forums and forget your old friends, but please keep us in mind. With the eventual demise of c14 manufacturing and no likely suitable replacement coming from Mama Kaw, there are several of us that may want to follow in your foot steps.

I'll definitely do a comparison and give my thoughts on the differences and similarities of the two beasts at some point.

I bought a Wing last spring. It was kind of a turning 70 event and it sure does make the long rides with my wife more pleasant. I got to wondering if we may be the only riders to have both a new style Wing and a C14.

Is there anybody else?

I'd still have My Connie if it wasn't for a minivan and the loose nut behind the wheel.
