Greetings!



I've got about 25 years total riding time under my belt, but took ten years off from 1998-2008. I've had several bikes over the years, beginning with a tired old '70's CB500 four, an80CB650, and an 84 Shadow 750.

After getting back into motorcycling in 2008, I bought a lightly used 2002 Honda 919 and have put over 40,000 miles on it since.



I purchased an '81GL-1100 project bike last year, and then promptly crashed my daily ride and broke my collarbone :(



Since then, I've healed up, restored my daily ride ('02 Honda 919) from an insurance total to better than it's former glory, and have been riding as much as I can this summer.



The past month or two, I've been thinking about my poor old Goldwing project as it languishes in my garage. I've been thinking that I better get started on it so that I can have it finished by springtime!



This poor old bike is in rough shape, it's in desperate need of a full frame-off resto...but it runs! I figure this is a good starting point. Last year, I began buying up needed spares so that I can really tackle things once I get started. Now, after another year of neglect, I'm really ready.



I've even purchased a running but wrecked 80 GL1100 as a parts donor. THAT bike has bad front end damage, and the right hand frame downtube was punctured...so it's not fit for restoring.



Anyway, if you're able to follow the long and twisting path that I've just laid down...Congratulations! I'm looking forward to spending some time on this site absorbing wisdom and learning more about old Goldwings!



Thanks,

Declan / The Shadow
