I'll agree with that! We were in Hot Springs Ark. last April, with our Corvette group. There are some pretty sweet roads up in the mountains there, and not a lot of traffic to deal with, either. ;)

I'm in Nashville. Within a few hours you can ride everything from flat country to the Smokies (expecially, "The Dragon"). I love all the backroads and twisties in this part of the country. Sometimes I forget there is life off the GL. Bummer...

Not a whole lot but can piece together a few good rides here and there.


I like to go to the Smokies a lot - just 250 miles from Deals Gap.

in charleston SC

HI im a new rider. just picked up a 84 intrestate my first street bike so i dont have any thing to compare it to...... however i test rode a sportster which im sure is an ok bike,,,, but i am sticking with the goldwing. i had some problems with the brakes and inop fan , the fan hapen to be two things,, the thermal switch and no power due to the inline fuse holder bad. wow... took forever to find the fuse. it was along the left side under the seat. the back brake and right front brake would start to hang and really bind us after a short time riding. i rebuilt the master cylinder all seems well now... the temp gage wasnt working either it was the gage itself. hardest part of that was getting to it......... lots to remove to get to that instrument cluster..... just had to get the temp. pointer moving freely.. a ever so slight tweak.... get it all back together works fine. but noticed today the tach is sticking a bit...... its a high mileage bike with 97500 on her. it puff a lil smoke (oil) when i just start up. not all the time but occasionally. it always immediatly stops . i also get a ticking from the right every now and then a friend told me it from an exhaust leak. has anyone heard of this???

is there any additive that may work and what oil is reccomended for high mileage wings? wow so much to learn....:) all take care!!! and if ever in the north charleston area give a shout !!

Mike,
First off Welcome to The Wild World of GW. I have a 87 Interstate with 12,413 miles on her. If you have any questions the guy I go to is capnfred57 here. Fred is really good on the older wings. He has a 84 aspy. Also Join GWRRA for you can find alot of good info on the member boards there for Our Classic Wings.

Again, Welcome to the forum and hope to see you on the road. Till then, Ride Safe and Be Seen!
