Goodbye Yamaha

I am saying goodbye to my 2012 Yamaha 950T possibly as soon as tomorrow. I am going to look at a Goldwing. For the type of riding I do I need more comfort. Other than the belt I have had no issues with my bike. It is sad to see her go, but I hope her next rider will love her as much as I have. I have posted the picture of the bike I am looking at. I will still be here to harass all of you though, so do not think you are getting away from me that easy.

Well at least you're sticking around to keep us on our toes, lol. Good looking GW. Once you're exposed to the Yammy Brotherhood, you can never escape! Let us know your impressions of the GW once you get a few miles on it.

I am thinking hard for my second bike of a Sport touring and going with a Yamaha on that. It will be a Yama or a Honda ST.

I dont know how they shot that, but its a weird photograph.
