Time to introduce myself

Postby Delmarosalinda » Fri Nov 02, 2012 8:03 pm



I wish to say hello to everyone. I presently own a 92 shadow VT100c and a 83 Honda magna v65. I am making payments on a 89 GL1500 goldwing. It has been many years since i owned a GW and thought i'd stop by here and get educated.
I won't be able to ride it this year but I'll have all winter getting it ready.

Greeetings from the UK.

Can you have too many motorcycles. is that possible?

A comfortable couch might be a good investment.

i agree but it will have to wait a while. This is a barn find. Set 5 years, ran a little and sat another two years in a barn. So it needs a full service and tires along with carb work.

I bought mine back in July it had spent about nine years in a barn. The saga of changing the petrol tank can be found elsewhere on this website.
Good luck with yours.

Welcome from the U.P. of Michigan. And I agree you do have some nice bikes. Now is a good time to tear into the GW since it sat so long. Of course the carbs will need rebuilding and timing belts replaced,all rubber hoses replaced,change all fluids. Then you should be in good shape.

I imagine Honda will do most of the work. I work on a average of 80 hours a week. Been like that for three years now. Im taking the bike and a week next summer. I think they call it a vacation.

Aww, too bad. That would be a great time to get to know your bikes workings. I wish we were closer I would take on the job for you . But I understand, working those kind of hours the last thing you want to do is take on another job. I hope mother Honda dont hit you too,hard for the work. At least with most dealers you can find out ahead of time about the reputation for quality of work so be sure to check it out.

The local Honda dealer is the biggest in the state. They charge a pretty penny also. I've had work done by them before. They know what they are doing but it will cost out the ying yang.
Maybe when the time comes, a local member would be willing to work on it for me. Who knows.

I am sure somebody in your area would be able to help you out. Just be sure you get a good mechanic on Gold Wings. Some may be great on many other bikes but GW mechanics are a little more rare.
