Thanks to WingAdmin and many others

I want to thank WingAdmin for his excellent how to articles. :D I try to check out this site pretty often and am always amazed at what I can learn. Everybody is so willing to share their knowledge and help out those of us that are new to wrenching on these machines. Since I retired I have the time to do some of the maintenance on my GL1500 myself with the bonus of saving some money.
Last year I changed the oil, oil filter, brake and clutch fluids, but paid over 600 dollars for the local bike shop to do a tune up and a 35000 mile service.
Today I installed new timing belts, fuel filter, air filter, cruise filter, sub filter, and anti freeze. Tomorrow I will change the oil, oil filter and rear drive fluid weather permitting.
Without the well written how to articles, with the pictures which I find invaluable, and seeing how much help is available on this forum I am not sure how much of this I would have attempted.
Thanks again to all of you who have given so much of your time to share your knowledge with the rest of us.

Awesome. This is what I love to hear, because what you just said is exactly the reason I created this site in the first place. Thanks for writing!

Another Steve here who feels exactly the same way, who has also recently retired. The only thing I have ever paid a garage to do is MOT's. Thanks to this site I have had to entrust my wing to no one but myself.
Shortly I will be replacing my LCD display, fitting instrument LEDs, radio LED's, Audio input, making my own headsets, changing the fork oil, fitting a Road sofa, plus a few other jobs, having the time I have never had before I will go straight from one job to the next. It is great to know what you are doing from start to finish thanks to this site.

All I am waiting for is my LCD display and Road sofa from US that I am happily tracking
If at first you don't succeed, hide the evidence.
