Anyone own a newer Gold Wing

I have a friend who is considering trading his GT for a Gold Wing. He likes the GT just fine, but I think he likes all the comforts that a GW offers. I have owned a Valkyrie, but that was no GW. Yes the engine is as smooth as it gets and has no issues. But for those of you that either own or have owned a GW what do you think about this?

If he likes all the comforts of a Goldwing, then God bless him, that's
what he ought to have.

I have only had my GT for 6 weeks and I'm thinking of changing. Like a lot of people here, I have issues with snatchy throttle and high idle. Instead of my wife and I going touring at the weekends, why we bought the bike. I find myself on the bike the wife following behind in the car to deliver the bike to the dealers, for the 3 time. Not what I would like to call enjoying my bike.

And here I thought my life was a living hell for being throttled by snatch for a lot of idling.

They say it handles like a big sport bike - I would like to have one myself.

I think they are pretty much bulletprrof.
