I just joined this forum because I bought a 2008 GL1800AL. I've had many motorcycles over the past 40+ years, the most recent being a 1984 Honda V65 Sabre and a 1975 Honda CB550K, both of which I restored. The V65 has been my daily rider for five years but my wife and I decided we'd like to take some longer trips and hence our choice of the Goldwing.

Our GL1800 has about 77,000 km (48,000 miles) and quite a few options/accessories. Cold weather package, ABS, NAV, luggage rack, highway pegs (boards?), heel/toe shifter, CB, dragon wings, many chrome bits and a Utopia driver's backrest (not installed). I've driven it about 3,000 km so far and I've been nothing but impressed with its comfort, torque and ease of handling. I can't imagine ever wanting another bike (except maybe a new GL someday!).

Welcome to the GWOF from AZ, USA . You sure do live in pretty country up there. That is quite a stable, and excited for you guys that you have found the WING to your liking. Enjoy both the new ride, and the site.

Welcome, from an ex-Mainer. Nice Sabre, same engine as the Magna, IIRC.

That's right, the 1984/85 Magnas and Sabres have the same engine. And fine engines they are. The V65 has almost as much HP as the GL1800, but much less torque.
