Hello, FM JAX FL 81 GL1100

Hello, My name is Todd and I am in Jacksonville Fl. For some reason, at the age of 44, I decided to go out and buy myself a bike. Midlife crisis? No. I don't think so. I like old school bikes and the Gold Wing has always held a special place in my heart, so, when I found one for $500, I bought it.
She is a 1981 Honda Goldwing GL1100 Interstate. Her Name is Infidel.

I do have a Build Thread on the Naked Goldwing Club.

Ill just add a couple before and after shots here...

Fellow GW rider to Goldwingfacts. 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 Raner 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, Live to ride, Love the ride, always wear a helmet and riding gear, to live to ride again, but most of all enjoy the ride and watch your 360 for cagers.
