    Coming back soon

    Hi all! Getting the itch for a new GW. Like the black but I also want the touring this time round. Funny they said F6b model wouldn’t last! Name didn’t, but style did!

    Sounds good. Just hitting 50K miles on the B. When I hit around 100K, I'll probably go with the GW.

    Yup, the absolute best bike I've ever owned - or ridden. May take the unemployment $$$ and do another 3 wk trip. You traveling anywhere this summer?

    This summer is a bust, it will be no doubt new summer before I make any plans for any long distance riding. If where you look the virus is spiking and making any kind of travel difficult. I will remain local for now. We all need that wind therapy from time to time.

    Agree with you guys, my B has 63k and I am thinking of possibly upgrading in the next couple years. It has been the best bike I have owned. In CO now after 9 days in the Black Hills. Starting home today to be there by the 4th. As far as travelling....we really have had no issues this trip. Stayed mostly AirBNB's, or with family but a couple nights in local hotels. Stayed in Buffalo, Benton Harbor MI, Iowa, Spearfish, and now Denver. We have done the social distancing and pretty much stay to ourselves. Seems to be a little "less strict" towards the middle of the country - less masks, more open dining in places. Hotels are open but close to empty. One of the results from this virus is the tourists are not travelling as a whole so the traffic is much reduced. Great riding and no crowds.

    Very nice . . . did you go with the DCT? Would be interested to hear your thoughts on main riding differences between the '14 B and your new ride. Congrats!

    Yes I did go with the dct, I find I prefer the riding style in sport. I am getting use to the smooth ride in Tour mode. I miss the clutch mostly when wanting to guide into a corner or to a stop or even a uturn. Overall it is quite a smooth experience.
