Hello everyone from the Lower Mainland BC.
I am new here and have been snooping around at some of the topic discusions and found some answers with out even asking,
I just bought my first Wing, a 1985 Goldwing LE, love the bike but I do need to put on a new muffler.
should be ready in a week or 2, I should also be getting my Collector plate by then and looking forward to meeting new friends in the biking world...

thanks.. Johan

Welcome to the site from Terrace Johan. I ride a 1985 LTD as well,my ride of choice.My son in Chemainus has a twin to mine and his riding buddy in Port Alberni also has an 85 LTD.This is the place to find info about these classics. Like you, we have our collector plates.
These 1200's are excellent bikes, we tour every summer stateside.With proper Maintenance and TLC who knows how long these bikes will be around, mine looks as good today as the day it came out of the crate and runs just as well. 90,000 K

thanks everybody, I have been through many of your areas as a truck driver for the past 20 years.
I still drive truck for a living but now I work close to home and home time to ride and I bought a Wing because I wanted something comfortable for both Deb and I to ride together..

since joining this Forum I have learned a lot and I am greatfull that you are all so knowlegable and happy to help others with their issues,
I hope that I can do the same for someone else as well.

thanks again everybody..
Johan

well ICBC decided that my pictures were not good enough and they rejected my collector's plate, :roll:
I took some new pictures and and sent them off today and hopefully they will be happy this time.

all this even though the bike had a collector's plate on it when I bought the bike..
I'll update you guys when I finally get it.. :d
