Hi everyone !

I would like to introduce myself . I am Mike and live in Michigan in the summer and Arizona in the winter . I am 76 and got my first bike in 1962 , which was a 650 BSA . I thought that was a big bike , but not by today’s standards . I spent my younger years riding mostly off road in Southern California , but at this age decided to give up dirt riding . I’m still feeling the after effects of previous mishaps . I used to make fun of the big Goldwings , but I find I enjoy my amenities now . My first big bike was a 2009 Yamaha Stratoliner , then the 1994 Goldwing and then a 2017 Harley Streetglide Special . I still have all 3 . I may need to get rid of one , but can’t decide which one , since I like them all . My Wing has about 60000 miles and is really a beautiful bike . My wife likes the comfort but worries about the weight and height of the bike and last time I checked , I wasn’t getting any taller or stronger . I tipped it over a few times when stopping but found it necessary to keep it centered a bit more than the lighter bikes and keep it moving . I worry a bit about getting a mechanic to work on it and find parts , which is why this forum is so important . Thanks for adding me !

Hey Michael, My brother still has a 1960 BSA 650 "Super Rocket" that he bought new. It runs great.

Your 1994 Wing is east to work on and parts are readily available...!

There are a few knowledgeable folks here who can provide assistance when needed.
