First hello to all I hope this is the site I've been looking for. I have always dreamed of my own GW someday. GL1100 or one that is has parts availalbe. I currently have a cheap metric crusier :Dbut am far frommy dream bike,:cool: the GW since I was a kid. (now 48 yrs.)That said I do have aseveral questions from the start. This will show how much I don't know.



First, have Goldwings (GW) always had air adjustable shocks? If not when did it begin as optional or standard.



Second, are the air shock system the key to the golden ride they have? Smooth a chocolate on a hot day.... I assume there are other systems that assist but it must be built on the shocks in the back and the forks upfront.



Third, What makes the front forks soft ride so different than large crusiers?



Fourth, where on this site can I look up a list of the various years of GW's and what may have been new that year or dropped that year?



Fifth,how longdoes Hondasupporting any of their bikes after production has stopped? i.e. makes replacement parts for 5 years after bike production is stopped ...



Sixth, short of getting used/junk yardparts for older GW's, are there places making new replacement parts for GW's? If so other than cost, are new partsdifficult to find?



Seventh, are there junk yards that offer parts shipped to you online? If so how is service, quality of parts and price compared to possible new parts?



I think thats more than enough for now:action: , thanks for helping with anyof the questions I have. Dan

I recommend you post your question over in the technical section. Most of the gurus won't see it over here, and a lot more people frequent over there. Just a few of us greeters hang out over here on a regular basis.
