New Goldwing Owner near Pittsburgh

Hi all. Long time rider, but first time Goldwing Owner. Just rode it home tonight. Runs real nice! I have one trim piece to reattach, and several light bulbs to replace, but other than that she's a honey! New bike is a 1996 Gl1500 SE, in a teal color, right around 98,000 miles.

She's actually the young'n in my fleet. My other bikes are:

1981 Yamaha XJ650 Maxim with a XJ750 front end - daily rider
1980 Suzuki GS1000 G - new project
1993 Kawasaki Vulcan 750 - old project, for sale
1979 Honda CX500 Custom - old project, Sold!
1991 Honda Nighthawk 250 - Wife's bike
2004 Kawasaki Ninja 250 - first bike, sold to some ex con right out of prison.

I enjoy wrenching and riding and I'm looking forward to the longer trips I can take on a nice Goldwing

Welcome to you from Mississippi. Nice looking bike and quite the stable. You will enjoy the long trips that the Goldwing makes easy.
