A Honda GL1500se from 1991 - built in the USA, exported to France and then 'grey' imported here- hence the 'kilometers'.  Jo has worked hard over the years and the age lines are showing in places...

"Riding a Goldwing"

It's easy right?  Well yes,  It is, but it's not the same as riding a smaller bike (smaller in terms of weight and width- not engine size).  The controls are the same (except there are a lot more levers and buttons that have almost nothing to do with riding a bike).  

The physics are the same - once you are moving the bike is as light as any other and a lot more grounded on the road, although a heavier bike has to lean further into the corner.

But the first time is daunting?

It was for me.  For a year or so I looked at Goldwings for sale and realised that I had serious issues about getting on one and riding off,  They are just so heavy.

But bear in mind...
