  • 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.

              Yes, that turquoise Gold Wing is beautiful.

                What is the service interval on the timing belts? I think you have a ways to go on that.

                  Im not sure. I did them last week just for peace of mind. They were the original 24 year old honda belts. Still in remarkably good condition.

                    Good score! I think you came out with the better end of the deal.
                    Don't fall asleep while riding it.

                      Is it an interference engine?

                          I recently bought a second bike as well (pics to follow, if I can figure out how to transfer pics from my cell phone to my computer). I got a 2015 Yamaha 1300 Tourer that the PO saws-alled the saddlebag brackets off. The bike only had 5.5K on it! A few Accessories from a previously owned 950T also fit on the 1300 (aftermarket windshield, since the PO put one on that had too low of a headlight cutout for a proper mount). One of the first items I bought for it was a Clymer shop manual. The manual only covers up to 2010. Did Yamaha change the model (not counting the Classic...dealer had one, but mileage was 91.5K)?
                          My Road* had 6.5K on it when I bought it five years ago, I wonder how much mileage the smaller bike will get (I still have it and plan on using it for out-of-town trips). You did quite well with your new acquisition! Enjoy (as I know you will!)

                            The only thing changed on a 1300 of any version were the handlebars in 2012 (maybe 2011) & they only have a different bend with a little more pullback.
                            Other than that, the entire production run is pretty much all the same, so all manuals work for all years.
                            Clymer just published the book in 2010, that why they say it's for 'up to'.
                            You'll see the same thing on parts you buy "fits 2008-2011" but it also fits a 2012-13-14 ... because they printed the label for the part in 2011.
                            Not having a time machine & all.
