Hello from Bethel Acres Oklahoma, land of the red dirt road. I am John, and my wife is Sandy. I love motorcycles, and have had a few.
I bought my first Wing new in 76, then I had an 84 Interstate for a couple of years. I had heart surgery and as soon as I was able to ride I bought a 98 Aspencade because I always wanted one and didn't want to wait anymore. It was a beautiful bike, but it just wasn't what I really wanted, so I just recently sold it. I may get another 1200 sometime, but now I have 2 1976 GL 1000s, and I just brought home a 78. I would like to make the 78 my daily driver, and one of the 76s has a fairing, bags, and trunk. I want to get the dresser looking good and use it to pull our little camper trailer to the nearby lakes for some nice simple camping. We have a travel trailer, but the bike camping is just so nice, I can't give it up.
I hope to retire in a few years, it is sounding better and better.
It is NICE to be in this group, and I expect to be asking for a lot of help, and hopefully offering a little help as well. I just came in here to look for timing belt info, and it was all right there. Easy helpful advice that I am greatful for. When I get a pic, I will add it. I would also like to say I am thinking about finding a sidecar to fit a 1000, I'd like to take my dog with me sometimes.
Thanks for allowing me to join, I look forward to all the great GoldWing help and stories.
