Hello everyone. I have been lurking at this forum for a little while enjoying all the information, friendship and comraderie. I feel I had to join now as I just got my first Goldwing. It's Candy Red. My wife surprised me by buying it for our 24th Anniversary. We live in Hamburg, New York and bought a 1994 Goldwing Aspencade with 30,000 miles from New Jersey. We drove there on Monday, met our new friend Mike, made the deal Tuesday morning and I drove it home 400 miles. My first time driving a Wing. WOW, what a ride, what a trip, what a wife!

Wow!! She is a beauty. Wish I had one like that!!

The bike's not bad either.

Welcome to the forum, D-Rod! Hamburg NY, huh. I bought my Suburban off E-bay from Superior Auto Sales in Hamburg. Took the Amtrak out to pick it up. Fun time.

Not a bad start for a first bike. Not crazy about the color , but itWAS your first time!

Welcome. again!

Welcome to the World's Greatest Goldwing Site D-Rod!

Damn good looking bike and the best color too!Your better half has excellent taste. Now you just have to saw off the top foot or so of that windshield and the bike willl look even better.

When you get a chance please post your location in your profile.

don't listen to those class clowns, the best colour is the one you own and ride, that screen is a bit tall also so do as exavid mentioned and cut it down a bit..


p.s red and white wings are for ambulances anyway.........

Hi D-rod and welcome to the forum. Great looking bike. windshield is waaaay to tall though. You should be able to see over it. Easy fix..
