After fighting with my 88 Goldwing I have made a command decision....time for a new bike. I have fought with this bike for over a month now changing the throttle cables. My #1 rule has always been "When you get frustrated back off and start up later". Well it has now been a month and I am putting the last piece of plastic back on. I fought the bike and the bike won. So I will be packing it up and taking it back to my father in law and he can do whatever he wants with the bike. The Goldwings are, IMHO, the best highway bikes going but when it comes to maintenance they are a bear. I can honestly say that this is my last GW.
