Going through my threads on this and other forums to save and print - like hard copies. It is quite an adventure. I have not finished, but I can say that I did not know much when I started. Had very good training acquired over the years to assist me in my motorcycle endeavour, and had a few good work habits.

First item on the agenda that I have continued is getting the OEM and aftermarket service manuals for the different bikes I have owned. Valuable resource(s) that without, too many questions are asked, and excessive time is spent trying to resolve issues.

Knowing what you are dealing with is another issue. Learned early on that an issue with the '85 Limited Edition and '86 SE-i fuel injected models can be considerably different than a similar issue with a carb model. Mechanically virtually the same, but once you get into the CFI system, all bets are off.

I've been reading my topics and the responses these have generated, and can say that the learning curve was very steep. The principles were always the same between the automotive and motorcycle world, but the nuances were considerably different.

The journey has had me look into and understand issues such as suspension and suspension setup, fuel injection systems, electronics such as what makes an electronic control unit (ECU) tick, what modifications can be made to enhance toe ride quality, performance and safety.

One major issue and this is that there just isn't any room on these motorcycles to do anything. A lot of the work is getting to the part/piece in question and replacing everything after the work is done. Honda was nice enough with the '85 Limited Edition fuel injected model to pack a Honda Civic into a two wheel platform. Newer technologies may require more real estate than is available. The newer series regulator/rectifier (RR) is larger than the OEM shunt RR and locating a suitable spot for it is a challenge.

Electrical work/wiring is a challenge. Started off joining wires and taping, then using all types of connectors and finally getting into the OEM style of connectors and doing solder and shrink tubing on wires. Accessory installation, accessory fuse blocks, relays.

The tools needed to service these older motorcycles is another world. Trying to stay away from tools sets and to be specific in the requirement. There are tools specific to a make and model. Do I go the make it yourself route, or just bite the bullet and buy the proper tool for the job. Budget, availability and what is my time worth comes into play in the decision process.

Read a lot of threads on conversions, rebuilds, retrofits, transformations, and was always amazed at what was being undertaken. At the start, always thought I would like to do this to my long term retirement project '85 Limited Edition. Fast forward some 6 years and I did get to do a significant renovation of my '85.

I am fascinated with the Goldwing, and its variants such as the Silverwing, CX500/CX650 turbo motorcycles. I collect literature and books on these, and am amazed what it took to get the Goldwing culture going. What it took to get the product to market, the design challenges - some quite humorous, why certain decisions were made and taken, makes one appreciate the Goldwing even more. A testament to this is the number of older Goldwings that are still used as daily rides, and touring motorcycles.

Not finished with my saving/printing of my threads and some others such as projects that have been done. It's a trip down memory lane that is quite enjoyable.

Cheers

Not to worry Joe. It's reminisce of my early school years, being brow beaten by the school marm who had a better mustache then most men! :smilie_happy: Had this happen years later when I was on a Junior Officer's course. Had an English test first day of course, everyone failed - preordained, and for the first 6 weeks of the 6 month course, every morning 0730 to 0800, was practicing English grammar and writing.

Going through the threads/posts is reminding me of what I should finish and/or close out. I do anticipate continuing with the journey, having more projects and adventures before this chapter of my life is finished.

Cheers

I have many of my favorite threads bookmarked via the bookmark button at the bottom of each page and can go back and look through many subjects. Sometimes it is a great trip. Sometimes, with the Slug gone now, it is a bit painful. But it is always great to look back and see the work and follow the trips!

I don't. Back and knee issues that could cause permanent damage. Not taking that risk.

This is one of the reasons I have a Can-Am Spyder in the garage to keep my '85 Limited Edition company. Still have good leg joints and the back is always a consideration. Lots of other things we do that can impact on our quality of life, don't need it to be a motorcycle with rider, pillion, and trailer to be one of them. It's like my father mentioned about retirement, do it sooner than later and you won't want to throttle the person that coined the phrase "golden years" and it wasn't David Bowie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRD0ghlFSgk

Getting back to the topic, reading what I wrote is quite nostalgic, and some of the early comments/posts regarding what I did or wanted to do, meant in the kindest way I think, needed a person to have broad shoulders and be thick skinned. Most of what I did was for learning purposes, to see if I could do the same, and to bring the '85 Limited Edition back to its former glory - still working on this aspect. My thoughts on maintenance/work were also to have the bike as a reliable daily rider, and to tour on far and wide. I knew that a lot of the work done would not have to be repeated - not to say I haven't done just this, and that having as reliable an older motorcycle as possible was key to having a good riding partner. Nothing like having an irked riding partner when you're a few miles from home.

I can see the day when these older vintage motorcycles are going to be found in a museum, collecting dust in a garage, or in the back forty waiting for whatever, and not be on the road. The expertise to keep these motorcycles operating and on the road is quickly becoming a premium.

Don't know what I am going to do with all the information I am amassing, but I will come up with something. Musings on buying, owning, and maintaining an older vintage motorcycle, Honda fuel injection and turbo history, rationalizing motorcycles - what is the best fit, what mods have been invented and shared, why do a specific maintenance issue a certain way, the don't cheap out way of doing maintenance/work. What are the accepted practice(s), and what is a good, better, best approach. Layman's guide to understanding charging systems - the three part alternator system versus a combined alternator, suspension and suspension setup, and a host of other thoughts. There's always topics that bring out the best in us such as installing a car tire, and how to do wiring to mention a couple.

Going to continue collecting information, try to collate it and determine what to do with it.

Sorry to hear that.
Yeah, I am almost 60 so my riding years are limited also.
Want to retire now and ride but this pandemic makes it really difficult to travel abroad.
Thanks to the new delta variant, it may take a few more years before traveling gets pre-pandemic.
I will lose my precious golden years. :fiddle:

Yes, "reliable" is the key. The stuff I didn't have in my Oldwing.
Hopefully this 2014 NC700N will give me that. It's really quiet but quick. Hope my roofed conversion won't harm the reliability.

Internal combusion engine days are numbered.
When the boomer generation (I seem to be a part of it according to the latest definition) goes, no one cares about old gas-engined stuff enough to keep riding them with limited and expensive supply of gas.

This may be the way ahead. I can have my daughter and son-in-law vet this information and give suggestions. My daughter has wrote some short books, and is quite good at it. Have determined how I will use the information. Going to start with musings on owning, buying, maintaining an older, vintage motorcycle, then transition into some history, then into the various aspects of work/maintenance on the older GWs starting front to back. Going to limit the information to 1000/1100/1200 GWs. Going to give myself a year time frame to come up with a finished product. 68th birthday present.

As I go through the information, will have to contact the owner(s) of specific info and get permission to use.

Be a shame to lose this information to the sands of time so to speak.

Took a stab at an intro last night. Since I am strictly a layman and DIY wrencher, though about a title for such a book. Something like "The Art of Wrenching - The Goldwing Way". More to follow.

Dave - have decided I have to do something with the material, and I have started with an intro and some 4 chapters of reflection. A lot of this information that I have been reworking was done several years ago when I first got into the Goldwing(s).

You mentioned an interest in what I am doing. Would you like to be a conscientious commenter for me? I will write and compile as best possible, then forward for your review and comment. Let me know. I could be out in left field for all I know. Would need email address so I can send an editable version for comments.

Intend to reach out to a few others as well.

Cheers
