New to this board

Hello to all. I recently purchased (late last fall) my first GL1800. Over the last 27 years, I owned 2 GL1200's and 2 GL1500's. I'm excited about taking this next step up in Goldwing riding. Since this Wing is substantially different to the Wings I've previously owned and worked on, I'll be looking forward to hearing about other folks experiences and opinions.

My new ride is a 2001 model with 50,0000 miles in it. Come spring, it will go into the shop for a complete fluid change-out, new rubber and a rear suspension upgrade, as I am planning a 2 week trip in July to go to Ohio by way of Michigan. We will be towing my Aspen camper on this trip and I'm looking forward to having the extra oomph the injected 1800 engine offers.

So, over the next few weeks, I will be familiarizing myself with the board and setting up my profile and learning how to post photos.

Welcome to the board. When you meet your friends at Chillicothe you will be at the edge of where the hills start and the glaciers stopped. I live about 45 miles south of Chillicothe close to the Ohio River. Give me a shout and if nothing is going on I will be glad to show you some roads through the hills here in southern Ohio.

As I can not change the writing in my Avatar, It was changed by a rogue moderator I would like to note here that I am the #1 Rail hater.
