Another noobie - but with a garage full of goodies...
I love forums. I've belonged (and belong) to lots of them. But, after decades of motorcycling and resisting the urge to buy a large tourer...

... I finally gave in and picked up a VERY nice 1984 Aspencade. Loaded and very well-preserved with only 35,000 pampered miles. Bought it from a kindly gentleman whose wife couldn't climb on and off it, so he gave it up. I felt bad to see him have to give it up, but glad to obtain such a nice specimen.

And you know what??? Now, I'm wondering why I didn't get into the tourer scene earlier!

The Aspy joins a couple of muscle bikes in the garage, a 1985 ZL900 Eliminator and a '94 Vmax. I had a brand new Eliminator when they came out and just had to have this one. (They're quite scarce).

Hopefully, they'll all get along.

I will soak up the wisdom here, and might be able to contribute to the general lore...
