My first goldwing. I took the plunge and have just purchased an 01 with 65k kilometers. I agonized over it for quite a while, and finally decided on this one. My rationale being if I didn't like it I could sell it after a yr and not really lose anything.
I'm just under 55 and also own a 1400 concours and an 85 madura. Some day I'll decide three bikes are too many, but for now they are just fine.
Now I'm wondering if i should buy a newer version. Can anyone enlighten me on the history of the 1800's and what was added in what yr? I have abs but no tpms.
I would also like to know if there is anything I should watch out for. My only issue now is sticky switches, but I think I can work on this over the winter.
Glad to meet everyone and hope you can enlighten me- mat
