Hi everyone,

My new (second hand) GL1800 came without an Owners Manual. (The handbook that is supposed to come with the bike)

Does anyone know if I can download one for free from the web? I have found sites where I can buy one, but if possible would prefer not to have to pay. Especially since I bought a Goldwing yesterday and am feeling particularly skint at the moment.

If anyone knows where i can get one I would be most grateful.



Chris

I have not seen anywhere where one can download an owners manual. Kit

The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike.

Thanks Kit. I am slowly coming to the same conclusion. They seem to be available for all other models but not the 1800

Many manuals for the various Goldwing models available for free download through the generosity of one of our members.

I believe he's looking for an "Owner's" manual.

There is one on Ebay right now but it is 95.00

Ouch, how much do they cost at the dealer?

This is an awesome site, I had found it already and have downloaded the service manual for my bike, but unfortunately no owners manual for the 1800 there.

Thank you everyone for your efforts. I think I am going to have to resign myself to parting with more of my hard earned cash for one.
