Brought home the new addition

Postby wilmo » Mon Nov 14, 2016 11:02 pm



Rode her home today. 1994 SE with 66,400 miles. Replaces Christine. Didn't take long to find a decent replacement. And at $3200 it was $800 less! I always thought I paid too much for that 1200. Bike is in good shape. Brakes will need some attention. Only rode it 11 miles to home and have to park it, not registered but could tell about the brakes. Temp gauge doesn't work right but fuel gauge does. Already have ideas on improvements and how to make her mine. :twisted:
So without pics it didn't happen, right?

Happy for you. There's no feeling like a new bike. Good luck going through it, and getting it in shape. I know this forum will be a great resource for that.

Good looking ride. Way to go. I'm amazed at the prices for gl1500s now.

For some reason this one was about $1000 less than any of the others on the site. But most of those others also had the trailer as well. Typically, they run around $4500 range but if they want to really sell it this time of year, ya gotta drop the price. The seller just needed to get rid of it to keep the better half happy.

This time of year (in the Northern hemisphere) is the best time to buy a motorcycle. Christmas is coming and people are often looking to find some cash, the deteriorating weather makes it less likely the seller will start riding again, and there are far few buyers about. It looks like you did very well.

Looks great. Mine is a pile of parts util I get the tank in place. Having issues, but my dad is in town, he said he'd help. Good thing, cause my fiancee is itching to get on and go for a ride. :D

Congratulations, it sure is a nice looking Goldwing.
I have a '94 SE also. At 54° I wouldn't expect my temperature gauge needle to move at all.

that's the kind of info I need. I don't want to start messing with it if it ain't broke. Maybe I'll just wait for a warm day next spring for a long ride and see what it does. I will do the test though and see if it is the gauge or sensor. Doesn't require any real mechanic work.

I also made a post on your "Sold my wing" thread. Went into a bit more detail there.
