This is my bike

Post by Jere H » Thu Aug 15, 2019 1:19 pm



I don't ride it very much at all. I haven't put more than 100 miles on it since I bought it a few years ago. Its got around 46k+ miles. And the cool engine covers. I don't know what do do with it really. I should probably sell it. I like to ride but fear florida drivers. The carbs are good, the smart man I bought it from said he had "pistol pete" do them. Though the suspension could use some work.

Cool looking bike! Your pictures completely changed my opinion about Goldwings without fairing and trunk/saddlebags. That one of yours is great. I'd alter the two tone paint job a bit. I see it painted bright silver metallic in the areas where the green currently is. Keep the low bars on and then put the cafe fairing you have on too! Damn, I wouldn't usually look twice at a standard but now you have me wanting to buy one and build it like yours!

Thank you! I cant take credit for its design, it was all painted and modified by a cool dude named Steve Burke. I did remove his rear saddlebags and bars though lol. I still have them though. Im not sure what the engine covers with their mounts would go for, or if I should try to sell it as a whole piece. Ive been told these are trying times for selling used motorcycles.

That's too bad you feel you need to sell it. Don't give it away if you actually decide to let it go. That style is pretty hot right now and yours would get a lot of inquiries if you listed it. What kind of motorcycle would be more interesting to you for riding to replace that Goldwing?

To be honest, I can't think of another style that I think is more beautiful than the naked GL's. As for riding, I've never been on a sport bike so I can't really say! But maybe you are right about holding onto it longer. If I did sell it, I would be taking an indefinite break from riding. I'm ashamed to say I've never got around to riding it on an early Sunday morning. Afternoon rides too close to rush hour might've discouraged me before. But I will this weekend for sure! It definitely deserves it.

I'll jump on the pile and say that is a really nice looking naked wing. And if it runs good I can't imagine having to get rid of it.
