Re: Dual antennas

I answered your question over on the GWOF forum, but will add here that most people that add the extra antenna on the 1200 do it just for looks. The antenna on the 1200 is a dual antenna and works both the CB and the AM/FM radio.

Re: Does anyone triple tow?

It's not that hard to do. the rear trailer will follow within a foot of the 5th wheels tracks in a corner, the slower you go the greater the distance. You don't even attempt to back up more than a few feet. We pull a 6x10' enclosed trailer with the bike in it when we don't take the boat. I don't hav...

Re: Can't figure out which part is which

I hope '78 is a typo and you meant '87 as a '78 would have been a GL1000. If I remember correctly it's the square one under the cross bar under the seat. I'll give you a bit of advice. I went LED on my turn signals and promptly went back to the old setup. The LED worked fine except the signal cancel...

Re: Anyone in the Texas Rio Grande Valley area??

William, I really wish the world were different, but it is not. A friend of mine did this exact same thing from a guy in Mexico and when the 2nd package arrived so did the Texas State Troopers and the FBI. I'm going to have to pass and I am truly sorry. I wish I could help you, but I can not.

I'm the guy Chris was talking about. I've been in Edinburg for a couple of years now and will probably be here at least another year. What can I help you with. I'm up in Missouri visiting for the next couple of weeks, but I'll be back down there before the 24th.

Re: LOOKING FOR A UED TRIKE KIT FOR 1985 GL1200

Get a hold of Norm at HOBO Trike Conversions. IMHO he builds the best outrigger trike kit available. He did our 1200 and we loved it. His is also priced well below all of the others. Won't get you anything, but tell him Alan from Texas sent ya. https://www.facebook.com/hoboconversions/photos/a.54935...

Oh, I don't mean while you're traveling, I mean when you've got it all set up somewheres and a storm comes up in the middle of the night. Have you worried about bei...

Beings my bike is an 1800, my emergency switch is on a panel by my knee so I broke down and bought the momentary switch off the PeerClear web site. Kind of expensive, but it works great. I mounted it so all I have to do is place my finger under the CB PTT lever on the switch. Never have to take my h...

Probably because people forget to keep the original shorter bolts and the longer bolts won't work without the bracket.

I'm just guessing, but check the dog bone fuse next to the battery. Don't just look at it. Take it out and check for corrosion or if it's cracked.
