History
I never imagined that I would own a Goldwing, but now that I do im sorry I missed out for so long.
I mow lawns for extra money on the weekends. I saw this monsterous motorcycle (im a dirt biker) sitting in the corner of one of my customers garage, dusty and obviously unloved. I asked the kid about it and he said it was left in the garage when they bought the house.
$200 and it was mine. It was parked 7 years with gas left in the carbs, i figured I would get it running and sell it for a quick buck...... I cleaned the carbs and took it for a "test run".
I fell in love before I had run half a tank of fuel through it.
