I was encouraged to introduce myself in this forum. First of all, I hate typing. eashooter: I have dyslexia and invert a bunhc of letters. :icon_confused: Thank God for speel check. But I do like to be helpful when I can. I am from Bay City, Michigan, and we get too much snow for a motorcycle rider like me. I must move some day, but the grandkids need someone to show them about Goldwings. I have been riding motorcycles since 1966, and can wrench on em a bit. My currant love is my 1982 GL1100i. Fully clothed. It is in perfect riding order. I plan on hitting her with some new paint, once the paint shop is up and running. Also I need to add stainless brake lines yet, then I'm done. I look forwadr to helping out where I can, and encouraging fellow wingers to stay patient and smiling while working on these treasures. It is a blessing to own one. Thanks for your time.
