Hey everyone, figured I'd make a thread saying hello. Got my first motorcycle about a week ago. It is a 1982 GL500 Silverwing interstate. Needs some work before it is really ride ready but I don't think it looks too bad for being as old at is it. Got a Haynes manual for it and I have some basic mechanical common sense. However I do not know much about motorcycles in maintenance or motorcycles in general, which is why I even found this forum. The plans are to get the bike up in running and practicing a bit in a parking lot then taking some basic riding courses as soon as possible. I just figured before I annoyed everyone with my newbie questions I will probably have as I get into riding and messing with the silverwing; I would go ahead and say hello. So hello from Southeast Ohio thanks for havin me!
