I was just cruizin' the local stuff to keep myself abreast what is out there.

This one showed up in the search for 'goldwing'.

I've never ridden one of these bikes, but it is a nice looker.

I am curious to know what they used for a 6cyl. A friend of mine rides the Suzuki version, but its a V-twin (1400 I think).

Before I bought my first wing, I had a chance to buy the Suzuki version for a great price and turned it down, for that very reason.

Like I said, I know nothing of it, or it's length of manufacturing run. Only 3 years? Nah, don't think so.

That is the very reason that when I do find something I want, it will get previewed here first :grinner:

I don't need a hidden gotcha in my closet.

A lot of years ago, a freind of mine had that exact same model. As I remember, it was a in line engine like most all the older kawwies were. I was a heck of a lot stronger back then, ( body building ) and it was all I could do to hold it up as it was so top heavy.:baffled::baffled::baffled::cooldevil::cooldevil::cooldevil::cooldevil:

Those used the 1300cc in line 6 cyl. kz motor I believe. It was fed with 3 large cv type carbs.They were water cooled and most were very strong runners. Now if you had one that had a problem you were in trouble. I worked on several of them and most of the owners resented buying them.

Madura 1200 V4 smaller version was the 700 couple of 1200s in the uk along with the Venture royal 1200 think suzi did make some large V twins too in later years
