I am very happy with my 2012 R1200GS Triple Black but it would never replace the Goldwing for touring, not that it can't do it, its just no as comfortable. BUT it is also 350lbs+ lighter. I like that part a bunch.

Here is my wing and new Triple black.

Take this for what it is worth as I have never owned a Gold Wing but I cannot wrap my arms around how the Gold Wing only has a 200 mile range.
