New from South Dakota

Hello. I am new here. No wing yet but...

I have been riding for a little over 20 years. I sold my last bike when the kids were small and we bought a camper. The youngest is starting school so now it is time to return. I was considering all types of touring bikes. My area is predominantly HD. My buddy picked up a 94 Gl1500 and let me try it out. I am sold. I am now doing my homework on the 1800 models and trying to decide what I want. I am planning to go shopping in the spring. We are taking a trip out to the Rockies this summer so this will be a perfect fit for it.
Already learning a lot from reading the info.

Welcome, Welcome To Steve Saunders Goldwing Forum, so with any Maintenance you do.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 "Goldwings" in their previous lives and can answer any question you have. The forums that I get the most from are::

Goldwing Technical Forum
General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
These have the best info about your bike and are where you ask questions and get help..

For Sale/Wanted Forum Good stuff for Sale....

And when you just need a good laugh:: Fun Forum Again Welcome to the Forum...

And A Big Welcome From Clermont, Indiana.....

Hello & Welcome to the forum family from PA. Good luck with your search for either a 1500 or 1800. I do believe that whatever you choose you will be happy.

Welcome Phenrichs, so your sold on the Goldwing, when you find the one you like, you will know, get the color you like, settle for nothing less then the color you like.

I'm a new member too. I joined the GW FORUMS this year in January 2014. I have a HGW GL 1500, Blue, 93 Aspencade. Read my story below how I came across my GW.

I began riding motorcycles in the middle 70's while my dad was in the USAF stationed in Germany. My fist bike was a Honda 50, I rode that bike everywhere and always wore my helmet. Graduated H/S in 1977 and returned to the good old USA, God Bless America. After a few years I followed in my dads foots steps joining the USAF as a Security Policeman. I retired from the USAF, but I'm still playing copper here in San Antonio, Texas. Back then I got away from riding, got married, kids, dogs, house, oh yea and my beautiful wife. I've wanted to start riding again for years, but just didn't get there. My oldest brother an avid bike rider for all of his life, still is, now retired, called and said he found a Honda Goldwing for sale. I told him I couldn't get into a M/C at the time. He told me he would help. While he was telling me about this GW, I was thinking to myself, I can't get into a bike right now. He then said the GW's the same blue as my old Ford Ranger truck I used to have. Well I had to have it. That was in November 2013 we bought the 1993 GW GL 1500 Aspencade. Just before attending the motorcycle safety course with our son Joseph in December 2013, my wife found a helmet and motorcycle jacket on our bed. My wife asked if I was buying a motorcycle, of coruse I said no! I'm just getting ready for the motorcycle safety course. Now the wife asked if I was buying one, not if I bought one. Very BIG difference between buying one and bought one. I know I'm messing with life as I know it. But what the heck, better to ask forgiveness, then to ask, "honey, sweetie, babe, can I buy a Honda Goldwing . YEA YOU KNOW THE ANSWER... Ride safe, love the ride, always wear a helmet and riding gear, to live to ride, but most of all enjoy the ride and watch your 360 for cagers.....
