Here’s a couple shots of fall colors in Quebec that I took while on our cruise.  The colors were particularly nice in the city of Quebec.  I had to include one of a sunset at sea that was really nice.

Very nice, the trees here are finally turning but nothing as vividly colored as Quebec.

Wow those pics are beautiful.  As Joan said very vivid.  Trees are changing here but not like Quebec.  Thanks for sharing.

I guess not long after we left Montreal to go home, there was a bit of a storm that did in a lot of the fall colors.  We felt fortunate to see them when we did. Thanks for the nice words.

Cathy, how’s the new Wing treating you?

Greg, Wing is treating me well.  Nice wind protection, smooth ride. Love the electric windscreen. We are going out tomorrow riding.  Meeting up with my old boss.  He retired in February.  Suppose to get up to 60° and sunny.  Have to take advantage of the weather while we can.  Today mid 40’s and lots of heavy rain.  Brought down a lot of leaves.  Thanks for asking.

I’m glad Honda chose to include a powered windshield.  On my ‘05, I could adjust the windshield slightly, but it wasn’t easy.  Someone came up with a mod for adjusting the windshield height with a motor, but it was expensive and hard to install.  I don’t think it was a very popular accessory.  Most of us just opted for putting on an aftermarket windshield.  The one I put on my Wing looked pretty much like the stock shield, but was wider and taller.  You’re gonna love that powered shield.

I don’t know how the overall wind protection is on the new Gold Wing, but on the previous models, like mine, there was a bit of wind that would come in on the rider when it wasn’t appreciated.  Like when it was cold outside.  I got a set of adjustable wind deflectors that mounted to the edges of the fairing, using existing attaching hardware.  The enabled me to either bring breeze when it was hot out (and there was a bit of heat that got to the lower legs from the engine) and to deflect the wind around the rider when it was cold out.  I wish I could remember the name of the manufacturer.  Maybe someone else here can recall who it is.  Oh yeah, there were also the foot defectors that kept cold air off the feet. 

Seems the new Gold Wings are all new, pretty much from the ground up, so I can’t really say much about them, other than they look really nice and, by all reports, are great performers.
