Great Forum! :YMAPPLAUSE:

I've ridden a 1979 naked wing since 2005. Bought her as a project and thanks to the Naked Goldwings Forum I've been able to do everything from rebuilding the carbs, to head gaskets, and every other bit of maintenance an old wing requires.

Recently purchased a one owner 1985 Interstate with 40,000 miles. Very clean and runs well. Not a scratch on her. Only blemish is some cloudiness in the clear coat over the pin stripe on the left bag. Starting out way ahead of where I was with the 79. 8)

I look forward to getting to know her as well as my old '79. I plan on doing a poor boy alternator conversion right away. Just don't feel comfortable taking a long trip with a 40,000 mile stator. I figure I'll end up doing it anyway, so might as well do it now. I've read most of the posts here on the subject, but will make a post in the appropriate area with thoughts and questions.

We rode the 79 all over the western US and will do the same with the 85. Here's my old 79 on a trip from Colorado to the black Hills.

Welcome aboard. Great video and a beauty 'Wing!
Remember, it's the journey, not the destination, that matters.

Hello, and welcome from Georgia :YMAPPLAUSE:
My '84 Interstate is running the same stator since 1998 or 99, about 100K miles on it now (200K on the bike). If/when it starts to go I'll do the Poorboy too.
Remember, No matter where you go...There you are!

Here is where I have ridden my 1984 GL1200I
I completed the lower 48 states in August 2009, riding the whole way with my Dad
