I have returned after many trials, toils and job chainges. But I am still here. As the saying goes, ( had I known I would last this long Ida took better care of myself).Well hard times have prevented me from replacing my old truck, so for almost a year now I get back and forth to work on my bike. Im not complaining. most days I enjoy it. Been ridin all my life. But I been thinkin about buyin an old wing to commute on. the luggage would be a great help as well an the wind protection. It seems you can get an older wing for not much, if you look hard enough. And I do love all wings old and new. This summer my wife and I came upon a fella with a yellow 1000 gl it was so sexy so do you guys have any advice on what to watch out for. so 1000s 1100s 1200s ? anyone? anyone?

Welcome back. Lots of folks on here with early model year Wings. I'm sure they will be offering their advice shortly.

Toy, lot's of Wings out there. You need to find the one that calls to you "Ride Me"

Issues, most guys will say buy the newest you can afford & I would agree. 1000's are sweat, 1100's work great, 1200's were better (except weak Stators) 1500's were plush workhorses, & 1800's are hot sporty guys.

Here's some good reading. Enjoy & good luck.

toywg i always tell guys to buy the best wing that they can afford. other things to consider, do you carry a passenger? 1100 and 1200 wings have more room for you and your passenger

Well Toy. You've met the three wise men. I can add nothing because everything I know I learned from them.

Welcome back to the fold Toy. Lots of folk enjoy the 1000/1100 Wings, and there's often some around in pretty fair nick. Search the usual haunts like Craigs list etc and see what's available in the older ones nearest you, but 1000's might not have much in the form of fairings and luggage anymore.
