Re: Do you wear your " Helmet "

Helmets have been mandatory here in Ontario Canada for longer than I can remember. When I first began riding, 50 some odd years ago we could still go bare headed, now I feel uncomfortable without it on.

Re: Top Tier Gas Stations

My 88' GL1500 does not like 87 octane. After the second fill up it started knocking. I downloaded the owner's manual and it indicates 91 octane. It took two more fill ups to get rid of the knock. The Shell down the street does not put ethanol in the 91 octane but the extra cost is appreciable. BP h...

Re: gl1500 wont turn over

Depends on if you want it to turn over to the left or right. just put up the kickstand and let go. Sorry, I just couldn't resist.

Re: RV Toy Hauler Info

Anybody mount a wheel chock in their toy hauler? We got a 5th wheel toy hauler last summer and had the same issues. (sold the enclosed trailer because a double tow was a pain in gas stations) The bike got hung up going in and out so the dealer extended the ramp by four feet. I got a wireless back u...

Re: RV Toy Hauler Info

I have a 34' Dutchmen that has 19' of living quarters followed by a closed off 12' garage portion in the back. It is a fairly steep incline to load the bike. I lift the back of the truck/front of the RV to load or unload the bike, because, otherwise, the bike bottoms out at the summit of the ramp. ...

Re: RV Toy Hauler Info

I've watched my neighbor load his. He has a fifth wheel with a patio in the back large enough for his large HD. His first lesson learned was get a WIDE ramp so you can put both feet down at any given point. His first ramp was too narrow and he almost lost it. Second lesson was to put blocks under t...

Re: RV Toy Hauler Info

The key to comfort and success rests with the height of the cargo area from the ground. The steeper the incline, the more exciting it gets. Find one with a long ramp and easy angle. Also, I found that backing out is easier when you put it in reverse and back out gently. The reverse button gives you...

Re: New to Goldwing.

The subject of what GL stands for comes up frequently. So far I have seen nothing written in stone from Honda. Any reference as to what it really means is guesswork and opinion. Correct. There are lots of guesses, and some "definitive answers" that are little more than guesses themselves. In truth,...

Re: New to Goldwing.

The GL is just the letters Honda assigned to the line for Goldwing. The numbers are the engine size. The other letters at the end are specific in identifying the model number. For the GL1500 (except for '88 & 89), I=Interstate, A=Aspencade, SE=Special Edition. The A is for America and AC means that...
