I started riding last year on a little 1985 Honda Rebel 250cc. Yesterday I made a deal for a 1980 Honda Goldwing Interstate 1100. The bike is running (owner currently rides it) and sounds/feels great (I test road it for about 30 minutes). Everything looks good on it and he has maintenance and ownership history, seems like a good fellow who just loves bikes. We shook hands but the horn isn't working (we tested the horn itself and it works so it seems to be the button) so he is fixing that and, once it is done, will be bringing the bike to my house to make the transaction. I am super-pumped! I am going to be using this bike for commuting on the freeway everyday to school and for some long trips I hope!
