    My last wing was a yellow ‘05 as well… Did the Dl1000 V-Storm for several years and now on my 2020 DCT Tour - loving this machine! It is hands down the best motorcycle I’ve ever owned. Three major modification that made mine much better are the RDL saddle, Traxxion suspension and HeliBar handlebar adjustment. I did other stuff too, but those are the ones that took it from 80% to 100% great bike.

    Got out for about 150 miles this afternoon. Rode county, state, and interstate roads. This bike is pretty good. It might derail my upcoming plans with the AT and adventure camper out west. :lol2

    Here's a pic from today as I passed through Clarksville, TN.

    This gray Goldwing and battleship gray color have some thoughts floating around, wait for it, my gray matter. :lol2 Anyway, with the DCT parking brake, one of these is not needed.

    Spotted this at the American Legion in Crossville, TN while looking for a bridge. ba-dum-ba! A road bridge :lol2

    I realize I’m 4 years late on this and probably 205 to boot, but I don’t recall seeing a bumper dumper on your list … don’t forget the hitch.

    (fwiw, my ‘03 w/24k miles still rides nice so no upgrade for me.)
