I'll add a welcome from Mississippi. There are a number of experienced 1200 owners here who can help.

Welcome from Motown. My buddy rides a 1984 1200 Aspencade and we just returned from a 2,100 mile tour of of the Upper Peninsula over 10 days and his bike ran great right along with my 2005 1800. Enjoy.
