Going by the photo, I would say the guy got a great Wing

Congrats. My first bike was a 1998 White SE. I feel the 98,99,2000 models were the best of the 1500s. You have a great bike.

Ain't that the truth!

I sometimes still lament the sale of my 75, back in 84.

I felt the same way about my 86 when I traded it in for a 2004 wing. I hope she finds a good home. You sure had a nice looking bike though. Any pictures of the new one?

Life was a rock until my goldwing sold me. Gotta go riding so my inner biker told me. At the end of my rainbow lies my golden oldie.
Some people see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

I don't know guys. I just couldn't bring myself to selling any of my bikes. Watching someone else throwing a leg over and riding her away to who knows what. He'll prolly clean her seat with Armour-All for Christ Sake!! I plan to give mine away to family when they are ready or when my time comes.

Maybe (probably) I got it wrong, that these bikes really are just metal and plastic, foam, vinyl and rubber. By I know mine have souls too! A personality! To call a bike that you've taken apart down to the frame and lovingly rebuilt "just a machine" would be like calling your dog "just an animal". You wouldn't sell your dog just to make room for a newer, sleeker, more fasionable model, would you?

I feel your pain, Bass!

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?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. Its having the right attitudes that's hard.
