bristol. Good morning. I escaped from New Jersey in 1966. Spent my young years in Summers Point at Egg Harbor. Most here would agree that 6 years is the max you would want to keep a tire on the rim. Would you trust a 12 year old Trojan ?
bristol for sure like the Maestro just said you'll want to change the tires. The rubber loses it's plyability after that long. I'm still trying to figure out how a Wing of that age has only 1500 miles on it! Anyway welcome to the site.
Welcome to the forum from the keystone state. Congrats on your new Wing. Wow, 1,500 miles on a 98 SE. Must have spent a lot of time in the garage. I would replace the tires as soon as possible and have all the fluids checked or replaced as well. Not good for a bike to sit that long. Enjoy the site and ride safe..
Yes Matt, first GW. Dirt bikes in the 60's and 70's. Went sailing for 35 years. Picked up a V* 1100 Silverado 2 years ago. Found the GW after the Mrs. said she wanted to join me and the V* was too uncomfortable. Setup the V* for solo ride. Takes a little getting used to the wieght.
Welcome Bristol3261. Wow, 1500 miles! I'd also run some fuel conditioner through it. Also, check the sight glasses on the handlebar reservoirs, and if the fluid is dark, better change that too. Coolant flush wouldn't be a bad idea either.
