The epidemic spreads
« on: February 28, 2018, 01:58:17 am »
As noted elsewhere, if you let your  wife get on a Goldwing, well, you know... ;)  Just brought this 2008 beauty home last weekend.Has  27,500 miles. It's powerful in a different way and smooth. Oh yes, it's smooth... And yes, I'm keeping the C-14 and the Wing, too.  But the two of them sure fill up half  the garage...  :nananana:

I don't care what anyone says, gotta like a goldwing. and that's crazy low miles for a 10 year old wing, that'll be a good bike for a long time!  :great:  Steve

Thanks all. It was owned by a Vietnam Vet who traded it for a SideXSide. Seems well taken care of, although I will admit SISF needs to play with the on/off fuel delivery.

Let's all help Dave spend his money. I think I'll ride it to the Carolina Conclave. Only bad thing about it is  I can't figure how to make  it a rolling hot tub without a sidecar... ;D

I'm sure glad the original and only bride is old school and still likes the 900. Bugs wind and all.

And yes it is a nice looking scoot. Congrats.

Farkel #1 - Done. Highway pegs for long legs. Battery maintainer purchased today.

This is my original and only bride, too. 38 years this summer.

I only think of reverse when I DON'T think of backing in first.   ;)

Seems like a good time to find deals, especially in FLorida on CycleTrader. I just stumbled across this one. Got me some new tires and waiting on a little warm weather.  I really like it and the C-14, just in different ways.
