1500 & 1800s

:D Just for the heck of it does anybody know why they discontinued the digital Speedos & tachs after 1987 Aspencades . I noticed the 1500 and 1800s don't have them . Atleast the ones I've see didn't :)

Same reason they discontinued them in cars at about the same time? People didn't like them, I guess. That said, they've made a reappearance in Honda cars in the last few years...does that mean they will be reappearing on Goldwings again?

What was it that people didn't like about them?

I dunno. I always liked them. But they must have discontinued them for SOME reason.

Well that was a real turnoff to me when I first looked at the 1500 . No digital nothing... I like gadets and accessories. When they put out the 87 Aspencade, SEI, and the 88 Aspencade came along it seems like there was a lot of things missing on that new bike. I thought that it was just the base model or the Aspencade was to take the place of the Interstate. and there was an upscale model which I haven't seen yet :roll:
