Went on a run yesterday. About fifty bikes making more noise than a B52 on takeoff. I was on our goldwing. A few others had them, but mostly harleys and other Vtwins with straightpipes. As we were threading down the back roads from tav to tav, I thought, I would rather be on my TW in the woods. Having to ride next to others in close formation on a twisty winding road, wondering who is going to brake hard or do something silly keeps a person on high alert. Like I said, would have rather been in the woods with a few other TW riders taking it slow and enjoying the out of doors. Thank goodness I have two of them to go out with the wife and have some laidback easy riding in nature.
