Congratulations on your New to you Wing. If you have any questions ask, there are a lot of people here that will answer and at least one person will have gone through the same thing before.

Welcome to the site from Wis.
You will find many of us also own a 82 Aspencade, so join the fun of riding and ownership.
This summer I turned my unit into a trike.I call it the poor-mans trike.I added the extra wheels by Tow-Pac.
Not to many enjoyable days left to ride up here,it was 36 F. this morning when I got up.

Welcome to the club, I also rescently bought my 1st wing(83) and like you... i also had a 78 cb750 back in the day and have been riding a 1200 bandit for the last 4 years. I foumd the goldwing in a garage sale and the orininal intent was to clean her up a bit and sell it .... but after a few rides, i luved it so much there is no way im going to sell her. have fun with the club ...its a great bunch and like stated above there are some real wing nuts here and can help you with any problems you might have (ive had 2 repairs to do and went smooth with the advise i got on here
good luck and happy riding
