    Nice idea Steve, thanks. How many miles do you have on Isleen now? I got 93k...getting there - Steve

    Hello to all from Macon Georgia! 120,560 smiles and counting on my 2013 F6B. I bought new in April of 2014 and thought I might keep her a couple of years and trade for new. I still can't find anything wrong with this marvelous machine and I enjoy the ride more today than when she was new. She is still a head turner!

    The bike has not been on trailer since shipped to the dealership new. Together we have had an absolute blast riding the lower 48, Alaska, all of the lower Canadian Provinces and the Yukon. All in comfort, style and without a worry about anything mechanical. She has never left me stranded and it seems strange to state that. You already knew it - it's a Honda! Chances are you've never seen a GL 1800, or any Wing for that matter, on the side of the road broken down.

    I'll circle back with an odometer photo soon. Our 5 year Anniversary is coming up next month!

    Happy riding to you all!

    Ha! Thanks unsub but I'm just a fortunate guy who had plenty of opportunities to get in the wind. Georgia is a great State to ride in year round.

    Steve, At 93K is there any sign of mechanical fatigue? Slight loss of power? Shifting getting hard? Valve adjustments more frequent?

    Oh that's funny!
    Isleen still has yet to get a valve adjusted - been checked/measured a few times - no adjustment necessary.
    No loss of power that I'm aware of. I test rode several bikes at Daytona and Isleen could still take any of them.
    Shifting is fine.

    How's the F6BX? She doing well?

    Yea, I was being funny. Same here the X is better than new. No valve adjustments. Runs and rides out better than new. Awesome machines!

    This past Friday the 19th was my 5 year anniversary with the F6BX.

    I could not for the life of me think of what to get her. What DO you get for the girl who has it all? A tank of premium? Maybe a bath and wax? 303 oil treatment for the plastic? Nah. We rode 150 miles through a storm hauling a chain saw to the Lake. It rained. Looking in my rear view mirror at times it looked just like the wake of a boat. I only saw 2 other bikes out. Both Harley riders in an F150 trailering their scoots.

    So it was a fitting end to a very sweet 5 years together. Another hard ride and put up wet with 122,348 smiles on her. No worst for the wear, we had sunshine and smiles all the way home today. Wishing the same for you all - happy riding!

    IMG_0020.jpg. Apologies for the poor quality photo. I'll need to re-learn how to post photos with an iPad or iPhone.

    You could:
    - get her some custom side badges
    - get her a BeadRider seat
    - do her eyebrows with some pretty LED lights
    - a FULL spa day (lol)
    - get her a Whelen TIR3 brake strobe light
    - show her a family photo album of all her cousins

    I could go on, but I just think you both enjoy just hanging out with each other.
    And that's beautiful.
    Steve
