I had motorcycles since I was 16 years old.
All sport go fast bikes.
Bought my first wing in 1986 at age 44.

I bought my first Goldwing on the 24th June 1983 at the age of 20. I turned 21 on the 26th June 1983.

Since then I have owned the following Goldwings:
1998 GL1500 - Red
2005 GL1800 30th Anniversary model - Silver
1998 GL1500 Lehman Trike conversion - Yellow
1996 GL1500 - Magenta
Now I own a 2008 GL1800 - Black - Airbag, Navigation, Premium Audio and ABS.

I was 48 too when I got my GL1800 in 2008. Before that my dad bought a new Aspencade back in 1985 and I rode it home from the dealer when it was new when I was 25 or so and put a lot of miles on that bike. What a huge progress Honda made from GL1200 to GL1800.

18 when I bought my first "Wing"... it was a GL500 SilverWing Interstate. :)

Did my first unofficial Iron Butt ride on that thing from Lubbock TX to Grand Rapids MI during Spring Break of my freshmen year of college.

1300 miles in 27 hours. :thumbup:

I was 39 and I bought candy red 1500. It was a 93. I did long distance touring since 1975, but that was always on 3 and 4 cylinder motorcycles.
