New to me GL1800HPNA

Post by wingpilot08 »



Was going out for a ride on a sunny Saturday and decided to stop at the local Honda shop to price some part for my 96SE...but what did I walk out the door with....

A new to me 2008 GL1800-HPNA Nav & Comfort group. It was just my birthday last week...and it only had 3300 miles on it. Priced right....so what if I don't retire in 2 years!

So..anyone in the market for a 96SE...gently broken in with 209,000 on the odo?

I have to say it's a very strange feeling seeing someone driving away on the bike you had for 19 years and 209,000 miles. I put the Wing up on Craigslist and had an immediate offer..the buyer and his wife drove from Pittsburgh (about 4.5 hours) to purchase the Wing. I wish them the best with this Wing and hope they get another 200,000 miles. With the buyer...I believe I have made another friend! Goodbye to my Great White!
