My new ride ....

Post by Koebes » Mon Apr 06, 2015 5:44 am



Hello to everyone on this forum !
My new ride is a 1995 Goldwing SE ...... And I finally had a chance to take her out last weekend! This Ohio winter has been a bear..... Glad spring is here. I have a few trips planned this year :
May...... Ride down southern Ohio & a trip to Maryland
June..... Pigeon Forge Tn. .... And yes...the Dragon
Aug.... Maybe a trip to Colorado....
Looking forward to many miles & smiles....
Thanks...Steve

I love the MC. I hope you enjoy her for many years to come. I know you'll like this site!
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

Welcome, from the Deep Deep South. You need to get those wheels turning, so that others know that you love riding. Enjoy your rides, as it looks like you have a few planned already.

I had a 1100 years ago......loved it. Since then I have owned a XL 1200 custom and later a BMW K 1100 RS . All nice bikes but none compare to the 1500! Wow.... What a nice ride. The guy I bought it from is a independent dealer.... Specializing in Goldwings! He knew my bike since it was new and told me not to worry about the mileage ( 70k); the day I picked it up a guy on a 1800 pulled up; complemented my bike and said " 70 k ? .....that barely broken in, I've got one with 185k! The 1500 ride a lot better that the 1800's".
So....it seems that the 1500 are a quality used bike and a tremendous value compared to the new wings......
Good luck with your hunt...
