I'm hoping someone out there can help me with a dilema.
I'm the second owner of a sweet 1979 GL1000 with full Vetter fairings and Hondaline bags. As far as know it has approximately 28,000 original miles and runs great. By the look of it the previous owner kept the bike very well maintained, even as an everyday rider there's very little to be corrected.
I have put on new brake pads, new clutch, all new fluids, oil changes at 2500 miles and air filters. The electrical prowess of the previous owner left a lot to be desired so I rewired the AM/FM/CD Sat. radio, all the signal and brake wiring and added a few new LED lights for better visibility at night and the usual maintenance items as needed.
My dilema is my health, I just had a new hip and knee installed, which changes my joy of doing my own maintenance and service on the bike. Getting older sucks at times, huh? What I would like to do is sell the GL 1000 to a good home and get a newer Goldwing that may not need the hands on so much as this one.
If anyone would like to contact me about a possible sale let me know either at Goldwingdocs.com or at, firstname.lastname@example.org. The asking price is $3500.00 but with all things, it's negotiable.
If I decide to keep it look for my queries on the forum page, thanks folks and keep riding!

clarkekw: Just a note someone else had posted about having there knees and hip done they said that it was easier to ride the smaller 1000 then the bigger goldwings . You might try a test ride on newer wing before you sale your baby,just my 2 cents. good luck with your new knee and hip Hal

My thanks to Hal for the info on having new personal body parts. It never occured to me their might be limits to sitting on a newer Goldwing. I have a buddy that comes back this spring from a ride to California from North Carolina on his 2010 wing. He and his wife should be back in time for me to make a test ride. I e-mailed him and he said the same thing you did, the new ones sit a little wider.
