Hello. I have owned Gold wings before, an 81 GL1100 to be exact. It was also the only motorcycle that I have had a wreck with. So, after that experience I switched over to cruisers... this was about 15 years ago. Before that I owned many Honda standards.



Well, I guess when motorcycle guys go through mid life crisis they want to get AWAY from the black and chrome scene... at least this one does



So, I placed an ad recently wanting to get a sport bike in trade for my sweet Honda VT750C cruiser. In an odd turn of events I went out on a rescue call the morning I placed that ad, and it was for a sport bike accident. Also had another call that same weekend. Then, last night I get an email about a sweet 87 GL1200 and since then I cannot get it out of my head.



As I do with all of my other many hobbies I turned to internet forums and found this one. So, here I am. If all goes well I will have my wing by weeks end and I will have TONS of questions.

I assume you are not here about the alchohol and tobaco?
