I think that Jim is about ready for a Goldwing trike! ;)

That's one thing you'll never see me on, well actually two....A Goldwing of any sort or a trike of any sort or combination.   If it gets to the point of not riding at all, I'll buy a convertible.

Goldwings are incredible bikes........you ever rode one? That is more than likely my next ride after the C14, I love the damn things.

No, it just looks like a big boy's tricycle with the wheels on backwards.

What about one of these bad boys.  These are as close to motorcycle performance and feel on four wheels IMO.

If you haven't ridden a newer "Wing you are missing something special.  Nothing beats a fresh latte at 80 ;D

Hey, don't diss Wings. I've had two of them and if I ever go back to 2-up riding, would consider another.

Most Wing riders are real bikers and amass some incredible mileage. And you'd be surprised how fast and hard you can ride one in the twisty bits if you know what the hell you're doing. Yeah, they ain't a C14 (what is?) but they're not lard bikes with straight pipes and pirate riders.

Update:
Took wife and daughter to Applebees last night, parked in a space next to two HD's.Came out, found this note on my windshield (and I type it exactly as it was written) :
"RELLY APPRECIATE 30 SPACES IN LOT YOU DECIDE TO PARK SO CLOSE TO MY BIKE YOUR DOOR HIT & SCRATCHED MY BIKE
BE A MAN AND TAKE CARE OF IT (phone # given)

After looking at this tantrum from an illiterate, I now understand why HD riders don't use real helmets- they have nothing in their head requiring protection!
I had no idea that only HD bikes can be parked in the parking spaces in front of the Applebees. My car had a foot of space between the door and where the parking line paint is, my door never touched his p.o.s. (don't want to damage my car on his trash-cycle).
Just goes to show the arrogance of some of these "bikers".

Go ahead give that pirate a call.  Or better yet post his number here so we can all call him!   ;D

Sounds like you're lucky that he didn't take his 'tantrum' out on your car when he had the chance. Call him up, should be good for a laugh or two I would think.

I hear ya there my friend; chill out.....

Not only does my best friend ride an HD I really do enjoying riding with them when I'm on the Ural as I can more than keep up with their break neck pace of 45 to 55 MPH..............................  ;D And when I'm on the Concours I love to blast past them all to which I then pull over and wait for them to catch up all the while I pretend to be bored......  :)

Some put miles on and some don't.  It's the same with any type of bike.  Still a pretty funny thread though.
