Thanks for taking the time to record and publish your story.
Bikes at present:
80 GL1100 Interstate: Now a Cafe Racer called DRAGON WING.
81 GL1100 collecting dust with about 300,000 miles, known as BLACK BEAUTY
2008 (I think) GL1800 Nice bike but as exciting as the family sedan!
76 GL1100 yes, 1100 with 1000 heads and cams, being customized
A fleet of parts bikes awaiting resuscitation or customization or abandonment :IDTS:

Excellent report, I'm a newbie starting my first build from a 76 non runner. Could you please give me information on how the one rider attached the panniers to his goldwing. What year bike did he order and adapt to the wing. Thanks

Sorry for the late reply postup, but which bike are you asking about? Backwoods fire bike? Purple haze 1.0? Pride ride 1.0? Or the mashup of the colorful pride ride with the purple fuzz back end?

After putting the bikes into storage, what did you do with them after that?
