Introduction .. (sorry)

Post by r2h »

I am new to this forum. I should have signed up much earlier. Right now my chats and whatever will be posted here .. unless someone suggests that I post elsewhere. Am 72 as my profile says and still riding. First GoldWing i purchased was a new 1978 standard blue. Had a Vetter fairing, a hang ten seat, and case saver bars installed. The original price was 2995.00. An unusual fact is that the license plate i was given was 78 295. Made trips to Florida several times, and a one time trip from Illinois to the East coast, north to Yellowstone, through Rapid City, to home, about 6800 miles in 2 weeks. (tis a story I may elaborate later, and post a video on you tube)
My current 1983 Aspencade was purchased April 1996. It has taken us alot of places over the years, to include the Grand Canyon, Deals Gap, Iron Horse Stables in Arkansas, and Blue Ridge Parkway. In 2012 we traveled from Illinois to Palm Springs, Calif.
Of course it was used and wondering if anyone recognizes this Wing. When i purchased it, most everything is as it was then. It had an Air Force Base pass sticker on the front fork.
I bought it from a Mr Norman from Chicago. Hope you like my intro
