Hey SapphireWing, Congratulations on the new wing
I have a 1998' Goldwing SE that has 5,700 original Miles on it the previous owner could not get his wife to ride with him, he was older, and then had a stroke and had to sell it.
Like the guys said just change the Oil, Goldwings are very durable
My 98' wing has less than 6K and it rides like a brand new bike.
Wings don't usually just kick out of gear.
I have Four Goldwings currently;
two are GL1500, one is a 88' has 75K miles, this one, when I bought it was lacking in maintenance, but once I completed ALL the maintenance it purr's like a kitten and now has full power & stops & handles well.
My low mileage NEW one, the 98' has only 5,700 Miles, neither kicks out of gear.
Goldwings are very durable.
Go on a long ride after changing the oil.
