No, I haven't even advertised the 1800 yet. Waiting to see what they will offer on trade (since they don't have ANY GoldWings in stock in Kodak, and just a couple 2021s "on order" at their other stores). This is a big dealership, too. Right at the exit for Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Dollywood, the Smokys. Multi-line dealer but right now mainly ATVs and UTVs and a good stock of Spyders.
The 1800 has "Full Monty" Traxxion suspension, which should add at least a thousand to the price. I'm willing to take anything else off of it. I have put the '79 GL1000 on Facebook Marketplace, but primarily to advertise our vintage motorcycle show next weekend. I'll update that ad after the show. Might take it to the show, but doubt it as I'll be driving my truck pulling a trailer with the Hunley (just changed the oil and filter in her).
Had the Traxxion Full Monty on my 1800 when I had it. First item I replaced, made a huge difference. Had considered the Traxxion suspension for the 1500 front forks, but this will not happen now. Down to one GW, just sold the 1500, the new owner didn't even dicker on the price. Now to get the V-Strom gone. Sonya mentioned that she will miss the 1500, enjoyed the ride, but we now have the Spyder.
Hear you on the availability of used bikes. The dealers up here had a banner year last year and are expecting the same this year. Make the used market a little better to be in.
