I started shoping for a Goldwing early this spring & I found this forum. I found it very helpful with lots of information on what to look for in the older bikes. I have been riding dirt bikes since I was 12(& that has been a long time). Our youngest graduates from high school this spring so I figured it was timetoget a street bike & I have always admired the Goldwing. Any way, with the information I gathered here I felt comfortable bidding an a 83 Aspencade with 88,000 miles on E-Bay. I picked up the bike last Friday and have put on 150 miles so far. I'm loving the bike and the experiance. The bike is going to need a little tweeking but for the most part is in nice shape.

Just wanted to say thanks for all the information that is exchanged here. I'm sure I will be checking in regularly.

Welcome to the World's Greatest Goldwing Site 83Wingrider!

That's a nice looking 1100! Just goes to show how a bike that's almost a quarter century old can still be a fine riding machine. Your's looks great, a little maintenance to bring her back to excellent mechanical condition and you'll have a lot of trouble free miles passing under her. I hope you enjoy your wing as much as I do mine.


BTW have a mana on me.

That bike looks like it has every option you can get. I got my old 82 a year ago and these guys where a huge help in getting it up and running. You are going to love it here, and I have had Harleys but some of Harley owners have a stuckup attitude toward people who ride other kinds of bikes. Everyone is so helpful that even I have been able to get my bike fixed up, with my limited mechanical skills. big daddy

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your first Wing. I got mine last Tuesday and put on 900 miles already. It is so great and so addictive. Best of luck on it.

Nice Wing enjoy... Oh and welcome

Anyone can drive a new motorcycle. It's keeping the vintage ones rolling that make it fun!
