Well, I have wanted to buy a GoldWing for a little over a year now. But I first needed to sell my golf cart. Well, today we sold it to a nice older couple at the campground. I would really like to be able to get a 1500, but we only go $2500 for the cart, so I am going to put it in the bank, and hopefully save up a little more money until spring. I know this is kind of a broad question, but how much $$$ do you think I will need to get into an earlier 1500? Not sure if it makes a difference or not, but we live in Minnesota. If I cant save up enough over winter, I would be willing to buy a 1200, as long as it was really taken care of.
