Hello Everyone,
Just joined this morning after checking a few sites. Thought this one would be best for me.
I've had several Goldwings in the past. My first was the Brown/tan 1982 Aspencade. After that, I, at different times, owned 2 1984 Goldwings. I've also had a couple Kawasaki Voyagers in my past.
Been almost 15 years since I've had a "big" bike. Then I got this '94 GL1500 SE.
Wow! That suckers heavy!
It's not perfect and it's got almost 140,000 miles on it but I'm really loving it! Anyway, Hello Everyone!

I don't have a "normal" computer, just this Wal-Mart cell phone. I'm not sure if I can post pictures with it.

True. Once I hit 5 or 10 MPH, I'm fine, but remember 10 days ago I was riding a 750 Honda Shadow ACE. Quite a difference, and still a bit intimidating.

OldZX11Rider,

Welcome to the forum from VA! Congratulations on your new ride! There is nothing like getting a new ride to make the blood flow and bring on the smiles.

Like you I have owned a number of different bikes, but never a Kawasaki Voyager. I tried to buy a brand new one back in 1988 but the dealer insisted I sign a purchase contract before taking a demo ride! I walked away from that deal and wound up on a Yamaha Venture. No regrets!

Now I am on my second Wing. I hope you get as much fun from yours as I have had!

Thanks to everyone for making a new guy feel welcome. Not getting much time to ride right now. The leaves are falling and I'm trying to keep up.
I did get out for a little bit this afternoon. Have only managed to put about 125 miles on the bike since I got it home.

Have discovered my temperature gauge isn't working and I was sometimes smelling antifreeze when I would come to a stop. So I got a couple things to work on this fall.
Again, thanks for the welcomes.
