I've been busier than usual this winter given my seasonal affective disorder diagnosed many years ago. Did first drive in my 99% finished 40 Buick. Redoing all the wiring on my 52 Ford F1. My 83 GS1100 got some detail work and all fluid changes but the big news is my purchase of an 86 Suzuki GV 1400 Cavalcade. 57,000miles. Suzukis answer to goldwing. Just had new tires and battery.As usual I don't pay much for anything and this is an example.Was on offerup for $1500 and I got it for $500. Issue was him and wife dropped it in their front yard and bent the fork. No other damage and he had a complete new fork/triple tree set to go on. So I changed that, lasered the alignment, new rotors and pads,all fluids changed and am getting it ready for a big wandering the country ride this summer. Destination I hope Charleston S.C. I'm needing a tow behind tent trailer, fold out type cause I don't want to motel it.Anyone have one for sale or know of one available? Can't be too big.Let me know.

Sold my Cavalcade and am now working on going back to stock carbs,airbox and exhaust for my GS1100. They haven't been on since August of 83. Figured it to be quieter on a longer trip.Just going to Tuscon AZ to visit relatives.That will do for now in this almost post covid land.
