Welcome to you from Mississippi. Good luck on your search. I can recommend a 2010, 156,000 miles on mine.

Welcome to the GWOF and best of luck on your quest for a new ride. Be sure to listen closely when looking at them because the one for you is going to be singing that Ride Me song.

Hello and welcome to the forum. May I recommend looking for something 2006 or newer, there were updates done on them.

As Bill stated above when you find the one you will know!!!! Doesn't matter the year if the bike picks you it won't matter.😁

Tanks for the welcome guys, looks like it is going to stop raining here for a day so maybe tomorrow I can go look at a couple bikes one is a 2003 with only 15kmiles but it silver, doesnt really do much for me other than low miles and good price other is black with 53k like the color but I’d love a yellow one.

you can look up the goldwing history... and see what colors were available in what years
some, like mine, was only available one year, or just a few particular years.
Black seems to be the only color that has been available every year

I found both of my wings on cycle trader

Welcome to the GWOF from Michigan. I have an '03 with 126k on it and still running great. Although "06 and newer have larger radiators for better cooling, mine has had no major heating problems but temps do climb some at low speed in heavy traffic and long steep grades in mountains at lower speeds (Mnt. Washington etc.). Good luck on your search and ride safe.

Only 15k?!!

Last spring I stumbled over a 1982 1100 with only 29k on it. Standard model with full Vetter furnishing, too.
I am humbled. At 60 I wasn't sure if I would ever own again, and my wing is certainly a treat, best ever, bar none.
So is the gang here. All the knowledge and experience you could ever want it's right here at your fingertips, just ask.
Buy the way, Welcome! Congratulations on safety reaching your retirement as well! If you find yourself near the North Star State next spring, just holler.

If you want a yellow one there is one on Facebook Marketplace but its in Corvalis OR 2001 Honda Goldwing
I live in Bothell, I bought a nice 08 From Moon Motorcycles in North Bend, he has a nice F6B Now but no trunk
Scott Moon seems like a good honest dealer


Here is another one on Facebook Marketplace that is down in Eugene OR 2008 Honda Goldwing 1800 But really low miles! I the 08 that I just bought from Moon last October was this exact model HPN and color but 27,000 miles for $9,700 and no trunk rack and My cruse control light is stuck on (its a pretty common problem) pretty irritating! I would be calling on this one if I didn't already have one! AND I LOVE IT! My First Honda MuchLess Goldwing!

I bought this bike in Oregon 08 with 11,000 I drove 528 miles to pick it up but it was worth the 1,000 miles and all day trip. : ) Bike is in perfect condition. price was a bit high at $11,000 but I got exactly what I was looking for. 08 with comfort package.

Pretty nice Rudy. Kind of a Burgandy or Wineberry. Looks great.
If you are looking for someone to ride with, there are lots of us here in the Seattle area.
