Hello from Michigan

I am newly retired and back in the market for a bike. I have owned many bikes over the years but my only Goldwing was a 1978 model which in 1987 I completed a solo cross country trip on. Being extremely budget concious I am looking at 1985-1995 models. Whatever I do I enjoy reading the forums and gathering info. If money were no problem I would probably buy a 1500cc model.

well, anything beyond 1987 is going to be 1500cc

so, include the 1988-89 for the Gen-1 model of 1500s

and the 1990-2000 for the Gen-2 versions

about 1997 the transmission was upgraded to a Valkerie transmission.

you can find 1500s down below $3,000 almost anywhere, and some very nice ones have shown up for $2,000 and below....

if someone gets in a bind, they will flip them fast.

and NASR12 was fun!

I live in Michigan also and have a beautiful low mileage 87 Aspencade that I am looking to sell. It is Wineberry in color, and has under 10,000 miles on the clock. Everything works and the carbs and fork seals were worked in 2013. Here's a picture taken last summer. I'm asking $3800.00 OBO
Here is the link to the ad in the for sale forum
