Just bought a new goldwing in Oregon before we came to Havasu. A 1998 with 2500 miles, it has been sitting in a garage for 13 years and looks like it just came off the showroom floor. I saw on the forum about using sea foam in the gas and that really made it run smoother. Is there any other things I should look for because it set for so long?

Welcome from NC.

I have just gone thru a 95 that sat for some time and think I have a simple list for you.
If its:
liquid or
rubber, replace it no matter how it looks.

At the very least:
tires and
timing belts
Brake fluid
antifreeze and
oil/filter

after that, it is up to you and how it rides.

Welcome to the forum and greetings from Florida.
Sounds like a 'Barn Find'. Good luck, it will run like a charm when you're done.
