Hey everyone.

Just writing to make my first post and introduce. I'm in central NC, just got my first goldwing, '86 1200 interstate. Came with the Corbin seat and drivers backrest, and 120,000 miles!!!! The owners manual has about 100 maintenance entries. Unbelievable how good this bike runs. Just did a 600 mile 1.5 day trip our first time out on it. Went to Boone and rode the BR Parkway and countless other great roads. I'm hooked and will never go back. My only regret is that I didn't buy a wing sooner. Riding with my wife 2-up mostly, just came from a '05 BMW K1200S.......while the most mechanically amazing machine I've ever experienced, not a good 2-up bike. Anyway, great forum and thanks for all the great posts I've already read!

Welcome, WelcomeTo Steve Saunders GoldwingForum.If you have any questions no matter how trivial they may seem this forum is the place to ask them. What I have noticed is that some of the people here were 'sin their previous lives and can answer any question you have. Theforums that I get the most from are::

Goldwing Technical Forum

General Motorcycle Discussion Forum

These have the best info aboutGoldwing’s and are where you ask questions and can get help..

For Sale/Wanted ForumGood stuff for Sale or if you have old parts sitting around the garage you would like to get rid of....

And when all you need is a good laugh to start your day try the:: Fun Forum After that it’s up to you which of the others you will like the best all I can do is suggest.

Again Welcome to the Forum...

Oh and did I mention everyone here loves pictures.. Show us some of yours... Even if it’s not a Goldwing just a pretty view

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Always look for the door "C" it may be hidden but there is always one there...
