Another new guy from Wisconsin
I'm from Colfax, about 20 miles northeast of Eau Claire.
I just picked up a 1985 Aspencade from a friend. This will be my sixth Goldwing, starting with a 1978 model in January of '79.

The grand total was 2 GL1000's an 1100, 2 1200's and a GL1500.

One of the GL1200's had a sidecar on it,

as does the '96 I still own.

and here is the new addition

Nothing bad happened to any of them. One went as a downpayment on a house. One to my son, one got sold when I told myself I was done with motorcycles,(I lied!), one to a friend, and two I still own.

Didn't mean to be so long winded.
A motorcycle is like a cast iron skillet, it mellows with age, wash it and you destroy years of seasoning!

Welcome Mike, from Southern California.
They occasionally race sidecars (special event) during the speedway season on a local track in Costa Mesa CA.
The smallest track they race on 1/10 mile. These are 1000+cc bikes more often found on larger tracks.
