I bought a 1979 GL1000 a few days ago. I am new to riding and thought a nice cruiser would be better to learn on then a rocket or somthing like that. I have only rode it 1.2 miles sofar. I am impressed with the balance of the bike and how relativly easy it is to ride. I'm a little worried about the power it will make when the bike is running as it should. As of now the carbs need synced and the intake tubes need new O-rings aswell as new points in the ignition. It Has a custom paint job on the bike that looks cool if it wasn't purple. i'll put up some pics tomorrow. I just wanted to say hello from michigan

Welcome to the addiction! I learned to ride a big bike on a 1981 Goldwing.

I strongly recommend that you take a MSF Rider Safety Course if you can. I learned a LOT of stuff that has probably saved my life many times over, and I am a cautious person anyway. You cannot go wrong, and the first thing they told me was that 90% of motorcyclists who get in a collision have NOT taken the course.
