I think you should buy a new Goldwing.....for Laura of course. I’m sure she will appreciate that you are looking out for her interest so that she doesn’t have to worry about that raggedy old heap of shit breaking down in the middle of nowhere.
HA! Adventure begins when the plan ends. She is actually pretty comfortable with the idea that we are riding that old heap that is liable to break down in the middle of nowhere. I don't want to disappoint her!
You are talking about the bike, right? :lol:
I think so? I don't know? :(

Keep us posted with the PR5........ I'm headed in that direction, once I wear my Angel's out :lol:
Interesting looking tire, very large tread groves, the front looks much improved, with a slick type outer edge which will help with feed back when cranked over hard on the gas :D
2016 1290GT-remus link and muffler, 2010 Black 1200 Multistrada full Termi system with mapping, 2005 SMR 640, full Titanium system, Mikuni flatside racing carb, 2 sets of wheels, 18 litre tank, and a nice soft seat.

Yes, that's how I read the new tread pattern too......probably won't last as long as the PR4, but more grip and better suited to a lightweight like the GT ;) - anyway, my Angels are wearing really slowly these days....it'll take a trip to put some miles on them if this crap heatwave doesn't relent soon.. :lol:
