Question another newbie

Hi everybody,
Just acquired an '85 GL1200 Interstate. Haven't had a bike in many years and can't wait to punch holes in the wind with this old classic, but gotta work out some bugs on her.
Don't have much free time to work on it right now, or play on the computer hunting answers. Ran across this site and am impressed with the members willingness to share their knowledge and experience, as well as their time, so I decided to join. Kudos, attaboys, and thanks to all who share.
By the time you guts help me get this old bike on the road, maybe I'll be able to share something too.

What?? SELL a bike??

Can I have a motorcycle when I get old enough?
If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lots of things. You've been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. Its having the right attitudes that's hard.
