Dear brothers

Based On the fact that am looking forward to buy goldwing ,i will tell you the one offered for your advice .

it is GL 1500 Model 2000 with 90,000 miles on but with extra accessories and in excellent condition .

i want to know if the milage is too high or normal and will the engine run for how long more given that it is in excellent condition ...

in other words what is the average life time in terms of milage for this bike ...

and what is its cons .

i used to ride VTX 1800 so i just need advice from you

As long as it has had regular routine service by the PO then like jonbigwing said that wing has not been broken in yet. Mine has 196,000 on her and still going strong.

I think the 1500 is the most beautiful of all the Goldwings. Go for it!
