Classic photos

My first Goldwing was a 1986, 1200A. Loved the bike - cruise was great, ran a mp3 player through the tape deck and it ran like a top. I think the bags had more usable space that the 1800! Would enjoy some photos of your classic.

View our 3 min. video of the Mokie Dugway in Utaha! Its not far from Mexican Hat.

I believe most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the seat to the handlebars.

Ride long and prosper!

Nice GL1200 Mike! Looks just like my wife's current bike (her 3rd 1200). Here is a photo of her '86 and my '05.

Here is my 1987 "Chrome-Zilla"


You see anything different on the back (No-it's not chrome!)


BTW:I sold this bike to a friend who then sold it to the current owner and it looks as good today as when I kept it this clean.(I miss that bike)

I don't think it had it on there when I saw it. That was way back in 2003!!

Can you believe it was that long ago?
