I currently have an '86 Gold Wing that I bought brand new in '89. Well, I am tired of fixing little stuff and being nickel and dimed by it. It's time for something new. That said, I want something I can use for both riding to work every day and for longer trips. I pretty much have it narrowed down to the following: -GL1500 - Pro: Costs less than an 1800, doesn't have the potential for frame cracks (there was a big recall for that) and has hydraulic valve lifters, unlike the 1800. There are plenty of low-mileage 1500s out there, and accessories and parts are still widely available. - Con: Out of production. In years to come, parts availability will become an issue. Has carbs which need synchronizing. -GL1800 - Pro: New bike, will be in production for at least a few more years, parts will be easily available for many years to come. Fuel injected, has all the bells and whistle. Nearly maintenance-free. - Con: Potential for frame cracks, but that should have been addressed by Honda by now. I am not completely up to speed on the latest on this issue. Expensive. BMW R1150RT: - Pro: BMW reliability, handling, ABS, heated grips and adjustable windshield. Minimal maintenance required. - Con: Luggage has less room than a Wing. Harley Road King or Electra Glide: - Pro: Image, comfort on the highway, resale value, unlimited customizing options. - Con: Vibration at idle and low speeds, cost of parts, higher maintenance needs than the other bikes on the list, higher potential for failures. I am pretty much down to either the BMW or one of the Wings. New or used, doesn't matter much if the used bike has less than 20 grand on it. The BMW is kind of getting the edge because I don't really take cross-country rides anymore, but it will do just fine if I do. The bags and trunk probably have enough room for 80-90% of my needs. Comments? Help me make a decision. All I know is I want a new bike that isn't going to need any more work so I can get out and ride. If I can find a way to keep payments under $300 a month, that would be huge, so I can continue to fly as well. If it came down to one or the other, I would have to quit riding.
