Good evening to all. I have been a motorcyclist for many many years. I have gotten to the point that I need a more comfortable ride and back support. The GW appears to be my best option. However I have no clue on what to purchase. Age of a bike is irrelevant to me. I want dependability and not expensive. I just enjoy riding. Can anyone give me some ideas on older year models and pros/cons? Thank you.

I really like the GL1500. rode my 1993 Aspencade for 210,000 trouble free miles, when they are well maintained they aree pretty much trouble free. Plus they have more saddle bag and trunk room than the 1800's.
Just my opinion.

Thanks for the information. If I wanted to be $2500 or below, is that realistic? I was thinking an Aspencade but didn't know much about them.
