New Old Guy in SWTN

Greetings from Hardeman Co TN - About 1 hour East of Memphis on the MS state line.
I've been riding since 1966 - Always an HD in my possession but a mix of others along the way.
I'm a retired Electrical Engineer and worked as an industrial electrician and industrial electronic repairman.
My wife isn't comfortable on my Heritage Softail anymore so we tried a GoldWing. It was love at first sit for her
She NEVER liked going over 45 mph on a Harley but was ready to keep going after a 10 mile or so ride at 75 on the Wing. So I'm buying a '95 GoldWing.
The bike has 11.5k on the clock and looks like new. I hope to be picking it up this week (1st week of June '19) - the seller is waiting on the title...

I've been reading a lot of threads on this site and WOW - GREAT SITE!

73 es Take Care, Don

Be cautious of deals that seem too good and owners waiting for titles.

With only 11 grand on it, I'd be a little leery of a bike that is a quarter of a century old as well. That's less than 500 miles per year. Too much sitting is bad for a 'Wing. I'd be much more comfortable with 111K.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Donny from another Tennessean!!! I'm over on the eastern side about 40 mile north of Chattanooga... Your gonna love the 1500 - most comfortable of all model years IMO... I owned a 93 Aspy for just over 20 years before trading for my 1800 - great machine... How about some photos of the bike???

Good luck with the new ride...
