    Good going, Tim!!

    Wonderful bike!!

    I had the very color 1986 Aspencade. Honda calls it: "Beige". It is really Mauve. I rode 69K wonderful miles on that ride. You will so enjoy it!!

    I found a very old photo (I actually had a little hair) of my 86' Aspencade after dressing it for ride-in shows (NOT a trailer queen!) . The murals painted by Charlie Buzzard are parrots I owned; the leather / upholstery custom work was done in Cleveland; Escapade trailer is fully upholstered inside. She won Best in Show for me in 1989 (Knoxville) and 1990 (Madison) at Gold Wing Road Rider's Association (GWRRA) National Rally:

    226925188_NYgv7-XL.

    I regret selling her; I hope you enjoy your wonderful machine; the only precaution is to prepare for alternator failure, common on 94-96 GW's. Keep the contacts clean and dry on the white plug with 2 yellow wires from the alternator! Your radio is awesome; the ambient sound / auto volume control works great! I can just about see the factory CB in the first photo.

    Honda did not sell many "Beige" and the only year they sold any at all was 86'. Most sold that year were "Wineberry" (maroon), then black. Honda did intro a fuel injected 1986 SEI in white. So, you will not see many this color.

    You bought a real gem. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!
