Srevice records...Service records...Service records. ( Did i mention service records)?

Make sure you a good collection of service records on an older bike. anyone can say "it runs great" just to find out that no service has been done to the engine or bike itself.

Yes I did, That is my front porch it is sitting on. Runs will real nice and sounds good, paid 1300 for it. I like the fact it has been lowered. Height was on of my concerns. I am taking my endorsement class on the 25th. Here in Oregon that is what you have to do so you can ride. I don't mind, I heard good things about the class and it will help me get the rust off my riding skills. They have bikes you can use, which I am going to do, then after I have the hang of it again, I will take the goldwing around the neighborhood lol

my niece had a plexi-fairing 3 on her 1000 wing and really liked it for blocking some wind, her husband had a 1000 wing with a vetter fairing, she didn't like it. she has a plexi-fairing 3 on her 1100 wing also. if you plan todo some traveling you might want to look at those plexi-fairings also
