Ready For the Darkside, might even do the double

So Its time, to go to the Darkside. I have read a lot, and I'am ready, but can't find a definite size.
I have a 1996 GL1500, and want a run flat.
So lets keep this simple, if you are that guy who has switched and loves it, let me know which tire and size you recommend.

Re: Bluetooth stereo system installation

I am currently building a 91 from the ground up. The only thing I need in a stereo is bluetooth. I can stream XM, Pandora, or my own music from my phone and don't want clutter on my bike. I have found an amp that up to 3 phones can bluetooth to, at the same time. My wife can control the music and I ...

Installing Cruise Control

I just bought a 91 goldwing anniversary edition. I noticed that it has a throttle lock but no cruise control. Is possible to put a cruise unit on this bike? Thanks Big Mike :?

Poorboy Conversion

I have a 1982 GL1100 that is having the typical charging issues I want to do a poor boy conversion. Does anyone know where I can find instructions or a wiring diagram on how to do this?

83 goldwing Digital Dash

I have an 82 aspencade. I just came across an 83 with a digital dash and like it. Can I swap out my old reg speedo & tach for the Digital one off the 83? Will they interchange?
Thanks, Big Mike

GL1100 engine swap

I am very new to Goldwings and have bought myself a nice fixer upper 82 GL1100. I was wondering how many parts interchange from generation to generation. Like would in be possible to a 1500 in my bike? Also would other things interchange seats, fairings, etc. Thanks Big Mike

I have checked all of the fuses in the fuse box and they are all good. The headlight did work and the high beam indicator worked now neither work? Any suggestio...

Now I do not have any inticator lights, turn signals, headlight, or running lights and the temp and f...
