Purchased a 2005 GL1800 today

Well, I said I wasn't going to do it but I bit the bullet and bought a gorgeous 2005, 1800 . After looking for a replacement engine for my 1990 and really not seeing anything and having to drive my wife's car for the last couple of weeks I'd had enough! I think what really sold me was the meticulous maintenance records that come with it. It just turned 64,000 miles and is really nice to ride. It's the base model and only has what you really need, killer sound system, cruise control, and a drink holder.. Got to find a good spot to mount a cigarette lighter without drilling holes. I did purchase a warranty and gap insurance which is something I didn't know you could get on a used vehicle. I'll post a couple of photos when I pick it up in the morning.
The local Ridenow dealership is nice to work with and easy, now just gotta pay off 11 grand!!

Congrats on the new acquisition, Scott. You are gonna love it.

Ron - I think he might be in Las Vegas, NV. Close to Phoenix, but a big ditch in the way, :lol:
