Well I guess I should have posted this at the beginning of the week since I have been posting already but it has been a busy week for me.

On Sunday 1/3/10 I bought my first Goldwing. A 1983 GL 1100A that has over 175K miles and is in bad need of a make over. She is not pretty at all right now but I intend to take some time and get her there. As you may have seen from some of my posts and questions she has her issues for sure but I am only the 3rd owner and while I do not know a great deal about wings yet I think I got a good deal on her at $700 cash. She seems to run good when she starts, she needs pain but otherwise body is in pretty good condition. Seat is dirty but no rips or holes. When I bought her I gambled that even if she did not run for long I could part her out and make back my money and then some. So thats the brief on my wing.

I also have an '05 Suzuki Boulevard C50 that I bought new in 2005 and have added options and Modded fairly extensively. This is currently my primary means of transportation except for my wife cage that she drives and I occasionally will take for an errand.

About me, I am 41 and live in the central valley of California (Sacramento area). I am currently completing a BS in Information Technology online and do not work while I concentrate on school. I have in the past managed hotels of all sizes including a casino property. I was a FF/EMT. I worked in food service and retail and was a teacher for Job Corps. I am married and my daughter has grown and moved out and is in the US Army Reserves.

So thats me in a nutshell. I have enjoyed reading the fantastic information here and I am very grateful for the help and advice I have gotten so far. I will load up some pictures tomorrow (well later today since it is 2:44 am) but I have to retrieve them from the other computer. (I am a junky/geek and we have about 10 computers in the house with 2 HSIA feeds on seperate networks).

I look forward to getting to know people here soon. Until then keep the rubber side down :D
