As many of you know my father passed away, one of the items from his estate that I could not bare to sell off was his pride and joy his Goldwing, http://captfiero.com/goldwing
He spent a ton of money keeping it in great shape, aside from a few cosmetic things that he did not get the chance to do it is a great bike. My issue is that I know nothing about motorcycles, I actually had to call back to Canada and ask a buddy how to get it into neutral. I have not ridden a motorcycle in 25 years and that was when I was 10 and it was a dirt bike. I knew I would end up spending a ton to bring it back to Canada with me, but I did it anyway. Its now here in Canada with me and in my name. Insurance on it is 1600 per year, yes Sixteen Hundred a year. Thanks to government insurance. I have a perfect driving record, but don't have a bike lisc yet, I plan to get one of those in the spring. Already took the sample knowledge test and got 100%.
I am looking for info on them, any info to be honest. So far I have found out its a 1200 CC Interstate, Shaft Drive, Carborated, and the entire drive train was redone 12 months before he passed, cost him $3917 at Taylor Honda in Oregon. I have charged up the battery and fired it up, I kinda wrote it down the block and back and went as fast as 2nd gear. It blew me away how quick it was for such a big heavy bike, goggled it and found it runs mid 12's stock and I believe he had some updates done when the motor was rebuilt, but to my knowledge I really don't know what. I have the receipt that says valves and head work and lots of seals, but can't make heads or tails of what everything means.
So who can tell me what about an 85 Goldwing 1200 Interstate?
What kinda information do you need from the bike to tell me about it?
