Gold Wing 1100 £800-£2000

BIKE (UK) - - LIFE - Mark Gra­ham Editor at large

As far as twowheeled ‘ex­pe­ri­ences’ go, a Gold Wing is up there with two-stroke 500 sin­gles and six-pot four-strokes. It’s a thing in it­self to be treated as more than mere mo­tor­cy­cle. Too much money is now be­ing asked for 1975“79 GL1000S, while the next gen 1100 re­mains un­rec­og­nized as a bet­ter bike for vir­tu­ally no money. It’s got black re­versed Com­star wheels, plus there are su­per­charger kits avail­able. If you don’t get the Wing thing, there’s some­thing wrong with you.

Been rid­ing for: 45 years Owns: seven bikes in­clud­ing H D FXR Shov­el­head, Kawasaki KH400 and Wom­bat.
