SailorBill I had a 2010 Goldwing and loved the bike, but I sold it in 2016. I had planned on getting a 17 BMW RT ( more sport touring than the wing) but in the mean time I had my neck fused. The weigh of the Wing and the RT didn't bother me it was parking and getting the land yachts moved around in the garage with out banging them in to the other bikes ( I can't turn my head more than a few degrees). I picked the Tracer GT because of the cruise control and riding position. I don't miss the on board entertainment system the Wing had, but I sure miss how quiet the Wing was. I have tried a bunch of different wind screens on the GT, but I have not found one that has worked to quiet the wind noise (my only real complaint). So the GT has pretty much meet my needs and is a hell of a lot more fun to ride than the Wing. My longest time in the saddle on the GT was 7 hours of twisty back roads. I would recommend doing a lot of test rides and find one that fits your needs. Happy hunting!
