"Gold Wing - The first 20 years" book

Not really a product I suppose, and no this isn't a formal book review :lol:

I got this off ebay for under $12 usd shipped and found it to be very good. A lot of the info and history in this book is out there on the internet but it contained much more info that I hadn't seen as well. It covers all kinds of topics, like why bias ply tires were used on the 1500 even though radials were available at the time - a topic that I've seen come up on this forum, and much more, and goes beyond the history and into the thought process of the various model's design. Plus tons of good pictures of most of the old prototypes, mockups, clay models etc. Down at the bottom of the front cover it says Owners Limited Edition, was this really only sold to owners? There's several on ebay so it isn't rare. Being the first 20 years it only covers up to 1995, but that's what I'm most interested in being a recent inductee to the 1500 club :D

I still have three or four copies of that book somewhere in my house, I gave some away as birthday presents and one to a couple from OZ when they visited the states back in '14, I had our Goldwing group sign the book before presenting it to them
