Hi all...

A couple years back, I traded in my 1995 Kawasaki Voyager for a 2005 Suzuki C90. Loved the Suzuki for its reliability... never let me down while I owned it, unlike the Voyager which seemed to always need its carb's cleaned or sync'd or the like. But, on a recent vacation to the beautiful Black Hills of SD, I decided that I was just really missing all the features of a touring bike... smooth ride, cruise control, stereo. Plus, I just needed a new crown installed on one of my molars, which I believe I can definitely trace to all the rattling I endured while riding that v-twin! :eek:

So, I pulled the trigger on a 2005 GL1800 with only 12K miles on it. Unfortunately, the tires were so wore, I needed to get it to the shop for new rubber before I could get it home, so I'm still waiting to spend some time in the saddle.

The new bike is definitely a base model, which I am kinda excited about. I can now add extra stuff that I think is worthwhile, so I'll probably be coming around asking opinions on this or that.

happy trails!

Welcome to the Forum, hotdogthemovie. My ride is an '05 as well--traded in an '06 VTX 1300R for it two years ago and absolutely love it. Handles great, comfortable, and absolutely reliable. Where do you call home base?

Home is the town of Ethan, SD... population of about 320. We really consider ourselves a suburb of the big city, Mitchell... home of the world's only Corn Palace, don't ya know!

Gotta love the Corn Palace. I remember when we went across country & I posted a picture of the Corn Palace on here, My buddy Chopin114 asked was it something to do with Russian heritage?

I think his actual quote was "What's the deal with that Corn Palace?"
