Did the live chat to check and see if they actually had one in stock, and of course they don't.

Strom's don't have headlight adjusters? Maybe you're aiming high.

Maybe you should try 10 clicks of preload on your rear shock or pushing yourself away from the table sooner.

I'm trying, really I am. Almost 10 lbs this summer but muscle weighs more than fat, right?

Okay, I come seeking wisdom. Possibly Byron's big moment here

To those who know I'm trying to sell the 426. So I added it to Columbus CL last night and this morning I was contacted by a guy wanting to trade a Gold Wing for it. Thing is it's a 1977 with 80,000mi, possible carb issues, and rear suspension needing replaced. I'm asking 2100 for the 426 but want $2000. I even looked at some other wings online that are newer, less issues, and only cost $1500. I don't think it's that great a trade for me but I know very little about gold wings and told him I'd probably want $600 cash plus his bike. I guess my thinking is it would be nice to have a really big touring bike for highway trips and such but this thing sounds like it could be a real headache. What say you?

Monte knows quite a bit about 'Wings. Let's see if he's around here someplace.

Because it's over 20 years newer? Maybe he's tired of a magic button.

My opinion is not to trade. '77 wings are cool stripped down like valkeries,
but suspension & 4 carb rebuilds are gonna cost BIG $$$.
Plus with 80,000 what else will need replaced/worked on?
