Currently the Gl1800 is just outside my cash purchase range, i would possibly buy new but nobody is selling new Goldwings in Alaska, special order only.
Just awhile ago i got off the phone with a fella in Anchorage, has a very nice 86 Yamaha Venture Royale, at that time it was superior to the Goldwing in comfort and extras, i already own an 89, its my favorite to ride, yes i also own a 93 and a 95 Gl1500 so why am i getting another Venture Royale? They are getting rare cause Goldwings eventually knocked them off the market when the Gl1500 came out, in the lower 48 they are cheap, very rare to see on in Alaska though, so i am trading another bike for this Venture.
Bottom line is this, the Ventures have something i like, not much of a demand for them, everybody wants a Goldwing, but in as such as buying a new one i absolutely agree, they cost too much.
If they had a sudden realistic change then i might buy new, the F6b looks good but i can turn a Gl1800 from any year into an F6b. With reverse.
