I recently bought my first Goldwing. I have always admired the wings but they did not fit my riding style. I ride a Kawsaki KLR 650 dual-sport. however I found a 1984 Aspencade in realy good shape and could not pass it up and now I am hooked and loving it.

I may be bius, btu I think the 84 is the best bike on the road. Handles well, rides well, and has quite a bit of power. I have only had one problem with my 84 that has yet to be fixed. You cant let go of the handle bars very long are the front goes to wobling. I have replace front tire, tree head bearings, front fork springs. I know it sounds crazy to let go of the handlebars but I have road many bikes that you could let go and make your turns by leaning the bike. Other than that The 84 wing is the best.

i love my 84. hi, i'm new here too. this is my first ride. i was gifted a cb750, in boxes. while i was still working on it my buddy decided to get a new boulivard. and sold his wing to me. i stole it. still havent gotten to ride the 750 except around the block. (still working out the bugs) but use the wing daily. its been about two months and ive put twelve hundred on her already. i'm almost looking forward to winter so i can work on her. hope your enjoying yours as much as i do mine. welcome

Hi Fellas. I'm a first time Goldwing owner too and i couldn't be happier.I've had other bikes over the years, but the wing will be my last stop...What a machine ! Mine is a GL1800 06, silver, and i have put a lot of stuff on it.I cant believe how good it looks. If i can work out how to do it , i will post a pic in here.I'm in Australia and the only place to buy bits for the wing is in the US....as you obviously know lol
Cheers
Graham

Welcome guys (did you set up a consortium before posting or what hehe) nice to see not only one but three new members. I had my 1200 for 8 years and 167,000 miles of joy. Replaced a couple stators and lots of tyres, but other than that, not a whole lot of upkeep other than following the schedule in the shop manual. Graham, I loved Brisbane when I was there, beauatiful city.
