Hi Everyone. My name is Terry from central Illinois.
I'm not new to goldwings but it has been 4 years since I've owned one. I've owned an 81, an 88, a 93 aspencade, a 99 aspencade, an 01 GL1800a and have just agreed to purchase an 05. I'm pretty excited to get back on the beast. I sold my 01 in 06 to get a BMW which I enjoyed but I don't get the same comfort and excitement of a GL. I also currently own an 08 Kawasaki Concours, 08 HD Ultra Classic, 07 HD VRSCD and an 05 HD 1200C for the girlfriend to ride.
Now, let the farkling begin. :)

Welcome to the forum from Pa, and congrats on getting back into a Wing. Quite a stable of rides you have. Between license fees, insurance, oil, gas and maint they must keep you working a lot. Hope you have time to ride. When you do, ride safe and enjoy.

Having so many does create quite an expense and my full intention was to simplify and get down to just 2 or 3 bikes that I really like. I sold 2 bikes last weekend, have a couple of bites on the RT that is for sale and then I found this wing and couldn't pass on it. Hopefully my resolve will be a little stronger next time and I will just sell a couple more and keep the money in the bank. :rolleyes:

Howdy gntlewind and welcome. I've only owned more than one bike at a time once in my life; sounds like a fun problem to me!

Effingham is only about 35 miles from me. I live in Charleston. I know how you feel tho. I lived in Charleston, SC for about 10 years and then all over the south for the next 5 but moved home to raise a family and started a business which has kept me here for the last few years. I could move but then I would have to go to work and at my age, it wouldn't be as easy as it was before.

Hello gentlwind, welcome from another Illini guy, I'm up in NW Ill. 30 miles from the Wi. border and 12 from Iowa. Sounds like you could ride a different bike every day of the week. :D
