Hello from Richland PA or as my wife and I call it "Pettycoat Junction". Last summer just before driving my daughter off to college I panicked and sold my 2002 Suzuki Intruder 1500 (real nice bike) because I thought I needed a little cash. Now I know that there is never enough cash, and I realized that I hadn't been truely happy since, so I bought my first Goldwing two weeks ago. I'm the proud owner of a red 1982 GL1100 Interstate with 32,000 miles on it! I waited until the temperature got above 10 degree F and the sun came out and rode it home. I really wanted to ride it home. Even in the cold I discovered what a motorcycle should be. I'm in love...but unfortunately this bike had lead a comfortable indoor life for several months and has had trouble adapting to my cold garage and my desire to ride it as long as the roads are ice free and the sun it out.



I found this site looking up solutions for a problem I started having shortly after bringing it home, and I found many great references. Seems Goldwing starters don't like cold oil. Luckily I have a very knowledgeable good buddy who stores his 1983 Interstate in my garage and he andI plan to take a closer look this weekend.



I really like the friendly helpful attitude of this site and look forward to meeting you all. I'll get a picture posted and my profile flushed out soon. I'll be sure to post the rest of the story soon.

:12blue:Welcome From the HOOSIER State:1000red:

I keep mine under the cover and surrounded by old interior doors to keep out the elements (until the shed is ready) I keep a battery tender on itand when the weather warmed up to 35 degrees a few weeks ago, I turned on the key, set the choke, hit the starter button...3-5 minutes later I was riding...What a way to kill off the winter blaaaahs!!
