Ok so I screwed up. I had a 2014 ES and sold it after six months. Since then I have had two Goldwings, a 2014 and a new model 2018. I am keeping the Gold wing at my wife's insistence but after heading up to Memphis and picking this Blue 2017 ES with 5K on the clock I think this will be my go to bike for solo rides from now on. I got it for the same price I could have bought a T700 for but decided I want something more steet oriented. I now need more lighting up front and on the rear as I am really conscience of being seen. Looking forward to cruising this forum for headlight help and tail end lighting improvement.
