Hi from Richard and Lurena from Big Rapids, MI. We are new to this site and to the Honda Goldwing! We just purchased our Goldwing about 3 weeks ago. We have had many motorcycles in our past, recently we had a Honda VTX which we rode for a couple of years and enjoyed that, but I have had a couple back surgerys and my wife has a hip issue so this was not a comfortable ride for us.

We sold our VTX and it is on its way to Newfoundland. We found this goldwing from a friend by chance. It is a 1989, bought in 1991. It has 98,000 miles and is in great condition. We figured this was a good step for us to try the goldwing and see if it is a good fit for us.



We haven't ridden this only a few times as our weather here isn't warm yet, and actually we have a snow, rain and sleet today.. Not good motorcycle weather yet!!



We find this is a very good forum and have been reading a lot. We would appreciatehearing any tips and advise you may have for a Goldwing newbie. I am trying to catch up and do my own maintenance, as this hasn't been done in the last 23,000 miles or 5 years before we got the bike. The oil has been changed every 3,000 miles since it was new. The first owner was a finatic about his maintenance and upkeep, but the second owner continued the oil chances, but that is about it. I have changed the oil (mobile 1 synthetic motor cycle oil 10w40) on its maiden voyage home. I have ordered timing belts for it, so when they get here, that will be next project.



Have found Rudy's tech forum very informative on the timing belt replacements.



So if anyone else out there has some tips and advise for me I would greatly appreciated it!!



Thanks,

Richard and Lurena

Welcome willrich51 you might want to check the air cleaner and change the fuel filter if there's no record of its last being changed out. We're still waiting for continued warmer weather also.:waving::action:
