Not me,88 gl1500 .I took the code to our local and all I got was a blank look.They said it wasn't in the book and must have been "special".
Found it "online" custom mixed and a price to match.
Google your color code.

My local Body Shop Supply House had a camera that allowed them to match, and my Shinny Pearl Blue 96 matches up to a Nissan 2010 Blue. . . . I forget the exact color name the match was, but it was MUCH cheaper than the motorcycle paint I found online.

You might try looking up the U.S. Paint site, the OEM supplier for Goldwing paint. I recently(spring '14) had a Kompact Kamper trailer I now tow color matched to my '06 Goldwing and the match was exact. The hot rod builder I brought it to to paint it did say the paint was a PITA to apply but the finish is beautiful. The quart was $125 if I remember correctly, then there was the reducer, clear coat and catalyst. All told I think the paint cost about $300. But I would do it again in a heartbeat. I got the trailer used for a good price and saved some money by stripping all the lights etc off before I brought it to my hot rod builder. If you are interested I have some pics of the finished product in the member pictures section of this site. Good luck.(BTW- I tried the color matching route at all paint stores and the like to no avail thats why I went with the OEM supplier)
