Default New member and pending a decision

I have been riding for 30+ years, and now that I am retired I plan on trading in my Triumph America for a bike that I can use for touring, including two-up week long trips. I really like the Cross Country Tour and had the chance to sit on one, but not yet ride one. I'll admit I'm also considering a Honda Goldwing.

I'd really like to hear from folks on this forum who may have owned a Goldwing, or considered one before getting a Victory touring model, and what factors influenced their decision.

Good and not so good with either bike...but FOR ME it came down to storage and foot placement...guess who won.

BEST BIKE I have ever owned. Is it perfect, NOPE. But it is pretty danged good as far as I'm concerned. I have a 2012 with 30,000 miles on it. Nary a problem as of today.
