Just picked up my first Gold Wing. 2005 1800 ABS. Absolutely love it so far.

Can't wait to soak up the knowledge from you all.

The seller didn't have an owners manual. Any ideas where I can find one?

Thanks.

DTDew, hey I see that you are just up the road aways from me. I've had my wing about 4 months now and love it. This is a great place to find out anything you need to now about the bike.

Hi neighbor and thanks for the reply.

I can't wait to get some seat time on this bike.

Trying to drink from the fire hydrant and learn all I can from everyone.

Thanks again.

Welcome to the club, I love that color blue.. You will love the bike, I have always had sport bikes (R1, CBR900, etc) and my kids finally refused to ride on the back (They are 11 & 13) so I finally bought an old mans bike (a 2004 GL1800) and absolutely love it, I find myself riding more and more to look at the scenery and not riding at the speed of light and missing everything.. Its so much more enjoyable to look around, see the sights and enjoy the ride, I hadn't realised just how much I was missing on the sport bike.. Of course I still have a sport bike so I can deny that I am getting old!! but it doesn't get a lot of use.. :D
