Re: Agent Orange Cheese and the Bush Monkeys

I suspect your attitude towards Law Enforcement is the main cause of a lot of your non- Motorcycle problems. On a more relevant note, glad to see you worked so hard to restore the Wing, In it's day it was an excellent cross country machine, but time takes it's toll as I find out every time I ride my...

Just returned from a trip up the E side of Kootenay lake, then the West side to Meadow creek, Raining ash up there, smoke so thick you could hardly make out the valley walls.

Re: CB Installation help needed GL 1200 Limited

Oh, and I will have to replace the present junction box with one that mounts to the rear of the CB Unit, as the present one mounts to the fairing box and has different mounting arrangements.

CB Installation help needed GL 1200 Limited

Howdy folks, I want to add the CB unit to my 1985 Limited, the manual on this site is not for this model.
If there is anyone who has done this, or could peek inside their fairing and let me know what plugs into what
I would be most grateful.

thanks

I glance down at the voltmeter and it says 11.5 Volts. Yikes! Did I screw up on the wiring somehow? Yup, it happens, I've known t...

Re: The idiots are out there
