Wing lover

Hi guys, I have been a Wing Lover for most my adult life. Have had seven Goldwing's going back to my first 1975. The last two Goldwing bikes I have had Training wheels! Yep, a bad back has shown me I need the added stabilization of those extra wheels. My current is a 1999 1500 SE with a Voyager Conversion Kit. Just bought this one August 20th and drove it home 200 miles right off the bat. I call that a leap of faith, brainless or Balls. Not sure which but I do know what my wife thinks! lol Going to try to post a few pictures of my Goldwing "fetish" machines below.
I made my first/last trip to Sturgis in 2018 at age 65, rode both ways, was a good time despite being snubbed by the hardcore Harley guys.
Have had a 1975, 1982, 1984, 1986, 1989, 1994, 1999 Goldwing's.

Never too late to ride,
Jump River, WI

Hello and welcome to the forum.

I rode one of my 1500s about 800 miles when I first bought it. Maybe we are crazy, but I think we just know Wings.

Welcome! Nice selection. Question though, I only remember that style of fairing vent (on your 86 Aspy) being on the SE-i model...

grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!

Nice looking bikes! Welcome from IA!

The best thing invented for long distance touring was the Honda Goldwing. The second best thing was motorcycle highway cruise control.
