We've owned a couple 'wings for a few years, now. First, is a '77 with 42k miles, but it was too much of a project. So, I found a nice loaded '88 Yamaha Venture Royale. Rosie preferred the seat of the Goldwing which allowed her a better view, so we found a beaut with 32k miles.
We love the Goldwing even though it's only an Interstate. I don't care for the bling on the Aspencades, but cruise and reverse would really be nice.
I put new Metzlers on the 'wing last fall and they've really been nice riding. We've taken a few rides from Kremmling, CO over Trail Ridge Road to Estes Park which has been a sweet picturesque ride (dozens of pics of Elk.)
Ealier this summer, I rode from Kremmling, CO to my sister's in Utah for a funeral. That was the longest ride I've ever done on a bike and I loved it. There was still the smell of Lilac in the air from our long winter, which added to the open air exerience of riding a bike.
I've just finished re-sealing the gas tank on the '77. In the process of re-assembly and sourcing parts to restore the bike to naked Goldwing status.
That's it in a nutshell. Happy riding!
