  • I finally pulled the trigger......

    Some of you might remember a while back i rode a 94 goldwing and i got the bug. Well shes mine today.
    1994 Goldwing SE. Fully loaded with all the bells and whistles. 29k miles. Immaculate condition. I dont think i could have asked for anything better. The guy i got the roadstar from and i kept in touch and he called me a while back after i told him i was looking for one. I couldnt afford his asking price.
    I fixed a head gasket issue for his wifes jeep commander a month ago and it turns out he now needs his hemi fixed (dropped valve are common on 3.7, 4.7 and 5.7 hemis).
    so we worked up a deal. I fix his truck and the bike is mine. Before i could touch his truck he called me up today and told me to just come get the bike, he needs room in his one car garage. He even gave me the title.
    i rode it home, 10 minutes to my house and what a machine this is. If you never rode one you really should. I can wait to get tags on monday and take it for a good ride. I plan on changing fluids tomorrow and come winter time do timing belts just for peace of mind, he has receipts for a replacement 5 years ago at 21k miles.
    im keeping the roadie as well. Not gonna sell my baby.

    Congrats Rodzim! Nice ride and that's one heck of deal. And not only is it clean, but you know who it came from and know it was well taken care of and that can be worth even more. Enjoy!

      From my experience, owning two bikes if possible is the way to go. Different set up's for different rides. Plus if one is broken or needs maintenance, one has a backup. riding season is very short in Canada and a 2 week breakdown feels like 2 years. Great to hear you have a Gold Wing!

        I think you are right. The rear seat and trunk from my roadstar are likely coming off now.

        That is what I will be doing next summer. One bagger and one solo rider. Always wanted a Wing, but the last year was a financial bust. Next year may be better.

      It’s also kind of cool that it’s made in America too. I believe those were made in Ohio not too far up the road from Dayton.

          Congrats. When I got back into riding after 30 years, that's what I had. They are great bikes. Met a local GW riding group and from that some of us rode out to Colorado from So Cal. First REAL roadtrip. It was a blast.

            Canton, Ohio I believe is where it was made. I love how they stamp that right on the valve covers. I think they do that just for the H-D guys. I know a few H-D guys that also have 'Wings, and when they really want to go riding, they take the Honda. Those early 1500's were pretty solid bikes. The next evolution (1800's) were too but they had a lot more moving parts, just a little too technical for their own good. I have seen a few that sat out in the Texas rain most of their lives and still have solid electronics. Honda reliability is hard to beat, bikes and cars.
