Thank you for letting me join this forum. Currently I am riding a 2002 Magna, at the moment I don't have Goldwing, but if all goes well I will be buying a Teal 1996 GL500 SE. Since I'm buying the bike from a friend and the price has already been settled the only issue is going to be if I feel comfortable jumping up from a 750 to a 1,500. I think I'll be fine!

Looking forward to getting to know my new to me bike and taking some longer ride with my better half.

Until then I'll just leave this one here:

Thank you folks, as you can see from my new avatar I bought my first Goldwing. She is a beautiful 1994 (not 1996 like originally thought) Teal GL1500SE. :D 8-)

Thanks Curt! Planning on taking my time getting used to her, my Magna only weighs in at 500 pounds. I will definitely be spending time in an empty parking lot working on my low speeds maneuvers.

I know I'll be looking for an electronic version of the service manual. Otherwise I'll just comb through the forum and gather whatever info I can.
