I am brewing a batch of Dunkelweizen. It has been in the primary fermenter for 8 days now and the airlock has slowed down to about 1 bubble every 2.5 minutes. This is going to be the first batch that I ever keg with and don't want to mess it up. Should I go ahead and keg, leave it in the primary, or transfer it to the secondary????

I would give it two to three weeks in primary, then keg.
Primary 1: Guardrail Pale Ale
Primary 2: Lake Vacation Wit
Primary 3: Air
Secondary:All my secondaries are currently primaries
Bottled/Conditioning: Riesling
Keg 1: Old Yeast
Keg 2: Old Yeast
Bottled & Drinking: Commercial Stuff
On Deck: Nada

check the gravity... my Dunkel was at final gravity on day 8, I kegged it and was serving it a week later. (It won a small homebrew club competition)

The airlock means nothing regarding the progress of your beer.
