Hello All,
Well after a long 12+ years of non-riding I'm finally getting back into what I missed so much. I just purchased a hidden gem, a 1983 Aspencade with only 64 471 km on it in nimbus gray. Very well looked after and properly maintained by owner and I'm sure close to $1000. in chrome and acc..... this will make my 7th motorcycle and first tour. From a 250,400,750x2 to 1100, back down to a 900 and now back to the 1100 in a more relaxed drive setting. I was going to buy a newer tour but couldn't let this pass along with the knowledge it would be best to get back into with this then say a 1200 after a few years. But my friends have bikes so I never lost my touch at all. My friends GW was so easy and pleasurable to drive I couldn't help ask why I waited sooo long! Great feeling to back on one again. I look foward to learning more and sharing tips & tricks here along with getting to know some of you. Thanks, and as i read and know, you can never have enough information.
Just added some before pics, after will come when I'm done.

Thank you. According to his maintenance log it was done at 45 000 km and almost all other regular maintenance at the specified time. She definitely needs a damn good cleaning for being barn kept..... the safety certificate indicated front & rear brake pad replacement and front caliper. I'm currently in progress of removing most accessories and cleaning as I go... hopefully I should be riding by Friday or Saturday coming.
