just a few words to say hi from sunny (lol) ENGLAND. ive had a few goldwings in my time, 2 1000's, 1 1200, and this is my 4th 1100. ive had a yammy fj1200 for th past 18mths and loved it but when the chance to straight swap for this 1983 gl1100 aspencade came along i couldnt resist. over here my fj1200 was worth about £700 and the "wing " is in my opinion worth in exess of £2000. good deal eh. anyway a tad about me, i'm 56yrs old and married to an absolute nutter called MAGGIE who also rides. i live in WESTHJOUGHTON which is about 12miles from MANCHESTER. no kids so i can ride 24hrs a day lol. ive done a couple of minor jobs on the wing in the 3weeks ive had it such as strip all calipers as they were sticking and an awful lot of polishing as theres tons of chrome goodies on it. hope to join in the fun, see ya's all soon, DAZ.
