Hello All,

I've joined to learn as much as I can about Goldwings. I used to be a standard/sportbike guy but my body is telling me that I need a new riding position.
Any insights gained would be welcomed. I know I'm looking for a bike that is reliable, well maintained and priced so that if I get in I can get out without getting burned too badly. Now my budget is tops at $5k but that will change as time goes on. So basically I'm looking for bang for the buck and a machine that will provide a good experience for big-boy touring.
thanks

tom

Hello from King NC and Welcome to the forum, one of the best ones you'll ever find.

I am constantly on Craigs list looking at bikes and I can tell you that there are several in a couple of hundred mile radius that seem to fit you bill. However....... , if you come across the right deal, you don't have to look close to home, you can buy one in Texas, fly down to get it and drive it home.

Good luck in your search, it's a great time to buy.

Thanks for the hello. Anything that I should be looking for or looking out for? I know that is a big question. Is there a link perhaps that may have a checklist of items that a decent tourer should have. or perhaps some things that you or others couldn't do without?

Thanks all.
I read through the buyers guide. Very helpful. Also learned to think about ergonomics (I'm 6'3'') and wind management. I also tend to do more damage with tools than if I had just left the problem alone. Any model years particularly bullet-proof or will I just have to find a Goldwing guru.

What I have noticed is that some of the people here were :15red:'sin their previous lives and can answer any question you have. Theforums that I get the most from are::

These have the best info aboutGoldwing’s and are where you ask questions and can get help..

For Sale/Wanted ForumGood stuff for Sale or if you have old parts sitting around the garage you would like to get rid of....


:18red::15red::12red::11red:


And when all you need is a good laugh to start your day try the:: Fun Forum After that it’s up to you which of the others you will like the best all I can do is suggest.

Again Welcome to the Forum...

Oh and did I mention everyone here loves pictures.. Show us some of yours... Even if it’s not a Goldwing just a pretty view
