I'm back! Sold the Goldwing!
Yes I had the Honda Goldwing for about a year, 2006 fully loaded, POS! Why did I come back? Several reasons, first of all I just don't have the time to do cross country right now as I'm still in my money making years! So when you're only doing Maybe day trips and a commuter, nothing better than the Vulcan 900! Why else would I come back, believe it or not on back roads secondary roads, this has a much more plush ride than the Goldwing! You say I'm crazy? Google some forums about it! Unless you're ready to throw $4,000 to a traxxion suspension aftermarket ,your ride's going to feel like s***! My wife said her fillings almost came out on the back seat! Why else would I come back to the Vulcan 900? Gas mileage! 13 more miles to a gallon, three tanks I'm averaging 45 miles to the gallon, never got above 32 on the Gold Wing. Why else would I come back to the Vulcan 900? Believe it or not wind protection! Buffeting! My wife and I tried 3 different windshields on that Goldwing and nothing compares as far as clean air than the stock windshield on the Vulcan 900! I only missed two things, the stereo! And the seat! But I got my appointment scheduled with mean City Cycles for July! I feel quite sure they can fix me up for around a hundred and sixty bucks keeping the stock seat look. Anyway changed the coolant today, changed the filter, change the spark plugs, changed brake fluid, all I have left is the oil, and the seller of my blue 2008 900 classic LT told me he just changed the oil a couple of months before he sold it to me , so that'll be it and she is fully ready to ride! Oh yeah how long did it take me to change my filter on this bike? About 5 minutes, on the Honda Goldwing, it was an 8-hour job! There's just absolutely no comparison on the 8th of doing your own work on this one compared to the Goldwing. Good to be back guys and gals!
