Hello Forum Members!

I just signed up for this forum as I'm now in the process of finding my first used Goldwing.

I've ridden a Suzuki 800 for years putting many many miles on it, riding all over the West coast into Utah, Oregon, Idaho and Arizona. Where I live here in Northern California we have quick access to Hwy 49 and the gold country, we're lucky to be able to ride year round.

I just traded my beloved Suzuki for a new backyard, it also has given me an incentive to upgrade to a Goldwing! (My wife found riding on the back of the Suzuki uncomfortable and has always admired the seats on the back of Goldwings)

My budget for a used one is around $5,000. I know I can't get a brand new bike, but what should I expect for that price range? To be honest, I'm not a mechanic so reliability in an older model is important. Any suggestions out there?

Looking forward to spending time here on the forum!

Welcome to the forum r8drz. I suggest looking for a 1500. You should be able to find one in that price range. Just make sure routine maintenance has been performed (belts, etc.) and it will give you many years of riding pleasure.
Ride safe,
Strat

1500, find the one that sings to you "Take me home". Very reliable.

run a craigslist search with filter set for goldwing, gold wing or one of the gl series you are interested in. I got my 1100 for $1100 in Rocklin, CA. Did about $500 in repair/renovation costs (not counting tires) and am happily riding around.

If you do need mechanical assistance, I'm in Woodland, other side of Sacto from you, but it's an excuse to ride.

Hello and welcome.
You can find some GL1500's in your price range. Like LarryinSeattle posted the Interstate model. The Aspencade and SE have all the bells and whistles. But you never know who may be selling the dressed Wing in your price range.
