It's time for me to move on

Well a fit of old age has possessed me and I've sold my Versys and gone to the Goldwing. The versys was possibly the best overall bike I ever owned, but I'm looking to ride some long distances in comfort and the Goldwing can't be beat. The best part is it's paid for!

I've truly enjoyed everyone on here and want to thank you for the support of my center stand, but it's time for me to move on so I'll say my "adu".

Ride safe. Don

Its hard if not impossible to beat a wing for mile munching on the interstate.

Good to see you got a Gold Wing in silver...that's the fastest color for sure. Enjoy it, Don. Don't forget to drop in on your V buddies now and then.

Ride what you like and like what you ride. I can see a GW in our future someday. They are great bikes as I can see us trading the ole' ST1300 for a winger ourselves someday. The important thing: You can still ride & enjoy it!

Nice ride.

Still have more then a few more years of college tuition to pay for my children so by the time I finish that and can afford a an upgrade I'll be looking for something with four wheels.

Like a wheelchair.

Happy riding.

Couldn't you have just put the Versys in the trunk as a back-up ?

It has been a pleasure to have you around, Don. Maybe we'll run into each other on a pie run someday! enjoy the new ride. I'm determined to own a wing one of these days.

Hey Don, good luck on the "Wing". Thanks for your keen machinists mind (center stand) and your thoughtful comments. Don't be a stranger.

Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching.
