Okay so I'm new to goldwings, but I seem to see a lot of 1984 goldwings for sale? Why do you think? Did they make more 84's then other years? Or are there a lot people just ready to move on?

1984 was a big year for motorcycle sales in general. If I remember correctly, there were something like 800,000+ units sold that year.

Specifically, the 1200 had just come out, with quite a few changes, and it was an instand success. (an understatement, actually) I bought my Aspencade in April that year, and there were GWs everywhere.

Only Honda knows, but I would say 84 was by far the biggest year for the 1200s. GWs where very popular before this, and someone correct me please, but I would have to say the 1984 1200 did more for the GL image than any other year. Biased appinion, so take with a grain of sa.....

You have to remember as well, this was just before any Hollywood actors had been hurt on a Harley, and they came to be the "I have one too" motorcycle. Nothing against Harley, but that is what happened. Good for Harley, but not for the actors of course. No one should get injured while riding. Anyways....

My wife and I were just going through some things a month or so ago, and I ran across 2 motorcycle magines that I had saved, with the tests on the 84 Aspys. I also found my original bill of sales. Also, I had a receipt for the $50 I had put down, to hold the bike while it was being assembled from the crate. I picked it up I think the day after I turned 33. Still have the bike.

Forgive me for divagating, but great memories....
