This is getting addicting. After looking at other avatars with multiple bikes I realized that I needed more. So I put an add in craigslist looking for a 84 1200 Standard. Yeah, I know there rare. So this Tom calls me and asks if I would be interested in his 86 1200 SEI. He is the original owner, always stored indoors and super low mileage. Tom is 75 y/o and decided the riding days were over. So I gave him my condolences and struck up a conversation about good times on the Wings. So I told him that I really wasn:t looking for a full dresser but lets have coffee and take a look at it. Tom was an awesome guy. This bike had only 15900 miles on it. He wasn:t sure how much he wanted for it, then said I:ll take 3K. We:ll all of a sudden I had a new bike to put in my garage. So not only did I make a new friend, but his baby is now my baby, sort of like an adoption...can:t wait until spring. And O yeah, I can:t part with my 82 1100 Standard.

Once you wing, you don't go back. Carol and I now have two Wings in our garage. They are VERY addictive. We have a 82 1100I and a 86 1200 Aspy with a Champion Escort sidecar. When we can afford to buy another one we are thing about getting a 1500 Aspy or SEI. Deciding on which bike to ride isn't that hard for me. I just ask Carol if she wants to go for a ride and that decides which one I am riding.



Edit: That is good loking bike you just got. Take care of it and it will take care of you. Enjoy the ride. :action:

No thats not my garage, the guy I bought it of of is holding it for me until spring. But on the other hand my garage is just as clean. No junk, heated, hot and cold water, stereo system, air compressors, ceiling fans and 12 ft ceilings. This is where I hang out...

You STOLE IT....

I paid $3500 for mine and it had 48K on the clock.

You will love it. The fuel injection makes it a great bike. Runs just like an 1800.
