I am looking at 2 different 1999 1500's One states that it is an SE modle and the other states it is an Aspencade. Both aniversery additions. Is there really any difference in the SE and the Aspencade.



I have not drove and looked at them just pictures and they both look about the same.



Thanks

Randy

I think you should just by my bike and be done with it :D I dont think there is much differance between the SE and the Aspy.... I'm sure there will be someone along shortly to answer your question :waving:

Besides the name difference, the SE's have as standard, CB, foot heaters, adjustable passenger floorboards, 2 tone paint scheme, lighted trunk spoiler, 4 speaker sound system and(there's probably more that I have forgotten)a higher price. ;)

If they are both in equally good shape and mileage, the SE would definitely be the better buy.

I have the 99 Aspy and love it. Aside from the upgrades the SE has such as the CB etc., they are equal in all other ways. Like was said, if you can get either one for around the same price, go with the SE unless the Aspy is in better condition. As far as the CB goes, I ride to get away from all the cell phones and other means of communication. CB's do have their place especially when traveling in a group for long distances, but I love the solitude of no one being able to contact me. I am also a single paint color type of guy. I love the Candy Spectra Red...solid...without the two tone. Again...just my preference. Having said all of that...I would never turn down the chance to own an SE if I were in the market for a Goldwing. After all...it is a Goldwing!!:clapper::clapper::clapper::clapper::clapper:Just do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The CB on the SE alone costs near $1000. to properly add.

The 4 speakers and adjustable passenger boards are super if you ride 2up.

The lighted spoiler is not cheap& is a real safety piece.

Passenger controls, trunk rack, etc., adds up to a huge amount.

Sometimes,I just like quiet and turn the CB + Stereo off.

Think about resale value.



So much depends on mileage and condition as well. Good luck either way.
