As we say in Texas "Howdy Yall!" Sorry about so long with no Introduction Post. Between work and attempting to restore a garage find = 1982 GL1100 Aspencade, 30,111 original miles. I have failed to post. But I have replaced fluids, gas tank (had a gallon of rust), brakes working, timing belts, plugs, coolant crossover "o" rings and gaskets, got it running and ran for 6 hours, started flooding so rebuilt carbs. What fiascos with the carbs, long story short - 4 sets of carbs and finally have a set that could be rebuilt. Carbs installed tonight and putting things back together. Forgot to take Pictures during repairs, guess I'll post some after completed. Maybe next week I'll see what else needs to be done, plus see if it will run. Its been over 30 years since I have ridden, (hope I haven’t forgotten how). I dont even remember what I rode back then, but never had a Goldwing! I hope its fun, and my wife is getting anxious to ride 2 up. She has never ridden.

Howdy fellow Texan. Where do you live? I'm over in East Texas near Tyler. If you're returning to riding from a long hiatus, which I did too you may want to consider taking a MSF course to brush up on your skills. I did this to get my motorcycle endorcement/license. I also plan on taking the advanced course where you ride your own bike. Also riding 2 up is another skill set that one should ease into after they get very familiar with their bike. Raising the center of gravity with a passenger can get very dicey in low speed manuvering such as pulling into gas stations. Ride safe friend and keep us informed on your restoration and ride experiences.

Welcome to the GWOF. It's a fun place to hang out.
DanB; is giving you some good advice Get good and use to the bike before you put your Lady on the back.
I recommend the MSF course around here they provide 125cc bike for the course, lots easier to learn the basics on then an 800lbs machine.
Best of luck with the restore and the re-learn on riding skills.

Welcome to the GWOF from Alabama. Very ironic, we have been talking about Storm-chasing on an earlier thread.

Congratulations on your find and getting back after 30 years. Being in texas you will have to take the beginning drivers course to get your license. That should take off a lot of the rust from 30 years. I live in Alvin, Tx near Houston. The course was worth it for me also, as I had been gone for 15 years. But also am back and loving it. Welcome home.
