How do you get used to dealing with the weight and size of the machine?

Maybe that's better left for another thread.

Keep the photos coming...your Goldwings are awesome and the hack rig offroad is impressive!!
I suppose it depends on how you're skillz are and what bike you're coming from. This is my first GW, but not the first I've ridden. With the exception of the known issues, this thing handles like my XR says me. Despite twice the weight and half the suspension.....
