New from Gig Harbor, Wa.

Post #1 by 240zron » Tue Mar 12, 2019 9:01 pm

Hello,
I'm new to this forum but have been watching and reading this forum for a while now. I just purchased a 81 naked Goldwing and looking forward to converting it to a cafe bike. This is my 9th Goldwing since the first one I bought new in 1978, I currently ride a 1800 Goldwing and can't wait to ride a slimed down naked wing. I look forward to asking questions and learning.

Take care
Ron
