Just joined a few minutes ago. Today while walking to the campus library on the way to a meeting I saw an old wing parked out front. It instantly took me back to about 1981 or so when I was still riding every day. I had a 1978 Suzuki 550 with a Windjammer fairing that I rode every chance I had.

Unfortunately it was stolen in early '82. I had it wintering in a neighbors garage. One day the neighbor, noticing the bike was gone, asked what I was doing riding in the middle of winter. Of course I wasn't riding and upon further inspection my neighbor realised a lot of his tools were also missing. One very sad and ugly day.

I never let my license endorsement lapse because I knew sooner or later I would buy a bike again.

When the meeting was over today I walked over to the wing and I checked it out. Looked to be an mid 80's model to me probably 84 or 85 with just a plastic windshield. But it got my juices flowing again.

The last year I was riding I was thinking of trading in for a more luxurious bike. I figured either a Suzuki 850 or a Wing.

All that said I am getting all my ducks in a row and will be getting a wing either at the end of this year or early next year. I will be asking a LOT of questions, as well as reading as many posts as needed.

Hello and welcome to the forum.
It's sad when people steal from others.
You may find a great deal on a used Goldwing, I have seen in the past some very reasonably priced 1500's with low miles. There's a Wing out there waiting for you.

Welcome to the forum. You won't be regret if you buy a Wing. Once you ride, it's hard to get it out of your blood. Good luck in your surch.
