This 1994 Honda Gold Wing SE motorcycle is a beautiful, low-mileage, top-of-the-line touring bike. With less than 23,000 actual miles on the odometer, this 1500 cc, 6-cylinder, luxury machine is in excellent condition and runs great with recently cleaned carburetors. The two-tone green exterior of the motorcycle glistens and polishes to a bright luster. The chrome sparkles and the bike still draws compliments from passing motorists and pedestrians.

The standard features of the SE are impressive and include cruise control, electric reverse, adjustable air suspension, fresh and warmed air ventilation, passenger intercom, CB radio, 25-watt am/fm/tape stereo, front and rear stereo speakers, lighted trunk, luggage inner bags for the trunk and side saddles, and more. The original tool kit and owners manual are secured in the left side saddle.

Added enhancements include floorboard shifter and brake, passenger communication control module, rear seat arm rests, smoke colored wind wings, cornering lights option switch, trunk side light strips, extra marker lights (fairing, trunk and tail), trunk rack and lower spoiler, lighted trunk mirror, freeway footrests, custom exhaust deflectors, battery trickle charger and a full rain cover.

Additional standard features of the 1994 SE include on-board air compressor for rear suspension and outlet, handlebar controls for stereo and CB, self-cancelling turn signals, direct driveshaft, headlight beam adjustment, folding antennas, seat cover for parking built into the rear seat backrest, windshield height quick-adjust, adjustable passenger floorboards, carpeted trunk and side saddles, and two helmet locks under the trunk.

While the Lexan windshield is clear, a non-obstructive crack extends downward from each side of the windshield ventilator. Two paint scrapes, one on each saddlebag, are the most significant mars on the finish. A small screw cover on the right side is missing. Also missing is a small trim strip on each side of the faring hidden by the wind wings. The grill behind the front wheel is cracked.

Three color matched Arai helmets with headsets come with the motorcycle, an XXL, a medium and a small. The XXL helmet needs a new pad in the top. The microphone attachment is broken on the medium and small helmets.

Chipotle Mexican Grill No Longer Serving Student Drinks

In just the past couple of weeks there has been a very troubling event in my life and that is that Chipotle Mexican Grill is no longer serving student drinks. It used to be that if you slid right up to the cash register while paying for your food you could flash your student identification card and they would hand you a free regular drink. That was a nice break considering that a chicken burrito with guacamole was about $8 a trip. now, with a drink its over $9.

Now I first discovered this when I visited the Chipotle in Cerritos, CA when I requested a student drink while showing proper identification and the cashier declined. Now I immediately became suspicious because there was an event month earlier in which I visited the Chipotle in Orange, CA and the cashier told me they didn’t give free drinks. I told him I went to Chipotle all the time and they gave out student drinks so after giving me a hard time he simply laughed it off and said “Just kidding”. It was frustrating then and even more frustrating now as I was severely caught off guard. She notified me that they no longer gave out student drinks. I asked her if it was just at the one location but she said that it was company policy and was fact at all of their locations.

I am severely battered by this latest news as Chipotle is definitely up there on my top 5 favorite restaurants of all time. I do plan on still indulging in the great Mexican food there but I think I will have to cut back on my ordering because unlike their shirts say they’re meat isn’t free.
