A return of the Goldwing!

Post by puddleduck »

Hi Everyone!

Just wanted to reintroduce my self as I have been away for a long while. I purchased the wing in 2010 as full dresser, made her naked and got lot of good advice ( and parts) from many a great member here. Shout out to Rat and Sandy!
I even when to the Ohio rally back in 2013.

Then my friends started getting off-road adventure bike and I wanted to join so I bought a V-Strom. The poor wing went into hibernation for many years. Fast forward, got married, had a kid and not much riding later I decided to clean up the Goldwing.

Now she's running and pretty again.
When I got her..

I hope everyone has great day!
