Greetings and salutations all. Been about 6 years since I rode, orginally had a naked 77gl1000, kept it that way to buzz traffic on the California freeway. 4:30 pm on the I-5 is killer. After my stint in the Marine Corp, I moved up to Carson City, NV with my wife to live near her family. Unfortunately, the scooter couldn't follow. Needless to say I was pineing for years to get another, and I came across this baby earlier this year. $2300 cash got me the title. Sure, the 164,000 miles looked intimidating, but don't doubt the prowess of the Goldwing. After spending all last week doing the necessary maintenance (and refreshing myself on the fine art of riding) I got to take her for a spin, and oh how I forgot how great the open road is. If things work out, I hope to slap another 160,000 on the odometer. Thanks for listening, and hope to be contributive on the forums.
