Welcome to the forum. Tell us more about yourself; where you ride, what's your favorite road trip, what's the secret of the caramel bar

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Welcome! Gotta say it seems unusual for someone to downgrade engine size so dramatically.... did you keep the Goldwing for touring or are you a single bike family?

Xvs nice and light and handles really well this is the first cruiser I've had so you never know may change for bigger cruiser at sometime..

Welcome aboard wings57. I've got a similar weather issues a fair part of the year in the Pacific NW.

Being a new rider (with a XVS 650 also) I'm looking forward to the challange of riding in inclement weather with the exception of ice and snow.

Now that I ride, I think one of my bucket list items would be to tour the U.K. on a bike. I love all the history and charm of the villages and small towns that I only get to see on the telly.

It would be great to actually get to experience it first hand on a riding tour. Cheers

What part of England? I lived in Brighton for a while and spent most of my 2 year "working holiday maker" visa traveling all over the UK. (Favorite part was probably my stint in Belfast).
