Where did you go for the test ride?
Did you get a decent ride?
How long did they let you have it?
Did they let you go on your own?

Ahh, there was a time when I thought there would be a Goldwing in my garage.  But alas, probably not anymore as I don't think I would be able to manage manoeuvring it in the garage, I'm already having problems with the ST1300.

I don't know your garage arrangement and I am not sure about the new model but the reverse gear on pre 2018 models works well and this replacement centre stand makes putting them on the centre stand child play. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8Fm0DZ0K10&t=9s

Yeah, for some time I've thought of a Spyder may be a possibility, for when I get old.  But, I'm not old as yet, or am I?  Maybe not in years, but the body certainly feels it at present.  Perhaps when I get over some current ailments, I feel different.

I have a decent size garage, around 7.0m x 8.3m, just too many things in it.   When I need to do any jobs that need a bit of space, I need to move things around or out, and this often means the ST.

Interesting comments about availability and 2021 changes re GL1800. Also interesting about the tie down points.

That's a feature of their trike conversion, along with highway pegs.  They might sell the add-ons to customisers.
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott
