Hello, Just bought a 1983 gl1100. Its my fourth bike but I have never had a goldwing. I missed out until now, can't wait until its a little warmer here in Michigan. Right now I stripped it down for cleaning and inspection, I appreciate the information on this site. :D

Welcome from the U.P.of Michigan and I agree, we have had more snow this year then we have had in the last several years. Probably won't melt until 4th of July. All I can do is sit on my trike and dream.

Also welcome from the other side of the lake. One of the requirements on posting here, is because you are from Michigan is that you promise to keep the snow on that side of the lake :lol: :lol: Any way a big Welcome from me.
I think we all want to get rid of that white stuff and get our pets out of hibernation soon. Enjoy the new ride :)
