Hi, just bought a used 07' Wing. Upgrading from a 05' ST1300 for more two-up comfort.

Hello everyone
This past March I traded up to the 1994 GL 1500 from a 1995 600 Shadow. My wife and I are sure happy that we did. We are looking forward to many more years of riding and meeting great people.

Thumbs up Intro

Hello from Texas, ya'll!
I'm back in the saddle after 25 years or so. Found a really nice '81 Interstate, right color, right price, and just couldn't pass it up. My last ride was a 750 Hondamatic that I really liked, but that's another story.

Glad to be able to find a 'Wing forum that appears to be fairly active.
Looking forward to exploring the site, and seeing what kind of info is out there.

"Wingin it across Texas..."
1981 GL 1100 Interstate

hi, as my name indicates, i am living in Tenn. probably one of the older riders of goldwings. just turned 68. i have a 85 limited edition with 36 thousand miles on it. got it second hand. Just finished some work on it, did a stupid thing and pulled out with kickstand down and it took me and the bike into a ditch. i ended up with a broken pelvic in two places, bike lost windshield, two mirrows and crushed in the top of the trunk lid on the back, just replaced all of that today. looking forward to getting back on the road again in a few months. glad to be here and hope i meet a lot of nice folks

We've owned a couple 'wings for a few years, now. First, is a '77 with 42k miles, but it was too much of a project. So, I found a nice loaded '88 Yamaha Venture Royale. Rosie preferred the seat of the Goldwing which allowed her a better view, so we found a beaut with 32k miles.

We love the Goldwing even though it's only an Interstate. I don't care for the bling on the Aspencades, but cruise and reverse would really be nice.

I put new Metzlers on the 'wing last fall and they've really been nice riding. We've taken a few rides from Kremmling, CO over Trail Ridge Road to Estes Park which has been a sweet picturesque ride (dozens of pics of Elk.)

Ealier this summer, I rode from Kremmling, CO to my sister's in Utah for a funeral. That was the longest ride I've ever done on a bike and I loved it. There was still the smell of Lilac in the air from our long winter, which added to the open air exerience of riding a bike.

I've just finished re-sealing the gas tank on the '77. In the process of re-assembly and sourcing parts to restore the bike to naked Goldwing status.

That's it in a nutshell. Happy riding!

Hi all, Just started riding after a 30 year pause. Don`t know I did that. I bought a 2004vtx1300 in Feb and really enjoyed putting 4000 miles on it in 4 months. Finally got the MRS. interested enough to take a few rides with me and we jointly decided that wasn`t a good bike for her comfort. I sold it to my son in law and got 1986Interstate w/60000
miles on it. I have it in the shop now, getting new rubber, tune up, new fluids and making sure I am ready for the road as safe and dependable as possible, I am sure I will enjoy this forum as I know Honda people are great people.. Willard
