Took her for her first Ride.

Postby jobe05 » Mon Jul 18, 2011 7:16 pm



Took the 85 GL1200 LTD out for her first run today, what an awesome ride! This is my first time on a GoldWing and I can say, it will be the only bike from now on. I have some front end work yet to do, tire and fork rebuild but she still handle pretty well with just a slight wobble here and there, mostly on low speed stops. I read others talk about wearing down pegs and boards on their wings and just could imagine laying something that heavy down so low on corners, but once they are moving, their more nimble than the smaller bikes. Can't wait to get everything done so we can go on some longer rides, 70 miles in one evening just doesn't seem to cut it...........

At 70 miles, she's just getting warmed up! I'm anticipating my tour around Lake Michigan next month with some family and friends. Should be about a 4 or 5 day ride. Now THAT's what I'm talking about. 8-) 8-) 8-)

I ride up and down Lake Michigan just to stay cool...I did that just last evening. A number of times I have drove up
the peninsula to Washington IsLand. But to drive around the whole lake, thats going to be some trip.
I think I would maybe take the car ferry across the lake ha ha I can't ride distance any more like years ago
Age 72...Hope you have a great time!1
