I was more thinking the Voyager because of the cruise control and rear speakers/intercom for the woman. Though I do like those older Goldwings...

I'd still like to know if anyone has ever ridden a Voyager. I've never ridden one, much less seen many of them.

Not only have you never seen a Voyager virtually everyone else has never seen one either. I've seen a few Yamaha Ventures from that era but the Voyagers (and Zooker Cavalcades) never sold very many. There are about a dozen of them currently on cycletrader nationwide.

I would see a hand full when riding around in the AZ area.

I said I haven't seen many of them, not that I haven't seen them at all. :-p

Yeah, I know what they are, old and all that goes along with it. But if I can enjoy a Concours as much as I do it really can't be all that bad. Besides, I'm looking for a comfy rolling couch, not a high tech 1800 Wingamabob.

No, no, no, NO! Smoke, you are a young Gen Xer! You need a top of the line sportbike. Something with massively low clip-ons, super high pegs, and jam packed with technology.

This whole "simplicity and comfort" phase you're going through really needs to be looked and corrected.

Damnit, I like things simple, black coffee, pumpkin pie, meat and potatoes AARGH!!

Besides, a Voyager will still be more powerful than my dad's(and his buds) Harleys. :-p If that's any consolation.

I had an '81 Interstate for a winter bike a couple of years ago, I changed cam belts and fluids, brake pads and tires, I think that was about it. It was a pretty fun and surprisingly quick bike, I put about 8 or 9 k on it and sold it for what I paid for it. I prefer the 1100 to the 1200 with integrated bags and stator issues.

The Voyager is a damn bike big and didn't really sell well so your whole support structure is going to be pretty thin from parts to even finding one and keeping it running. Connies on the other hand are a dime a dozen and probably have better support than anything but BMW and HD, I'd get one of them myself and either use a bar snake or bird shot or hang lead weights off the bars to kill the vibration.

I almost bought an 1100 Wing a few years ago, kick myself for not doing it. It was a snazzy dark/light grey two tone. The only reason I'd want the 1200 over the 1100 is the cruise control, but then I suppose I could add it to the 1100 if I really wanted it. Or even get the Audiovox cruise for the Concours...

By the by, my right hand is still numb, I think I pinched a nerve.
