1 less bike in the stable.........

Postby RoadRogue » Tue Mar 03, 2015 7:43 am



a little over three years ago I parked my 82 aspy for the winter,

little did I know at that time when the spring rolled around I would be buying another bike. Enter the 1500 with tent trailer.

So after keeping the 1100 in storage for awhile I decided that she needed to be ridden more. I made the decision to offer her up for sale.
I would like to introduce you to Brad and Val.

I went through the exact same experience with my GL1100. I felt bad seeing it just sitting in the garage, and taking it out for a "pity ride" every so often to keep it running well just wasn't cutting it.

I gave the site address to the guy who bought my GL1100, he was a nice enough guy, and an experienced rider. I didn't ever see him show up here however, or if he did, he didn't identify himself. I also never saw my old GL1100 around here being ridden...I hope it's doing alright. :)

Welcome to Brad and Val!

Welcome Brad and Val. I dont expect to see you on our roads, but if you are in the neighbourhood, give me a "Hoy!" and we can enjoy a tea/coffee. Enjoy your GW, and keep smiling.

I have not had a chance to ride the Voyager yet, I am sure it is a fine bike. Im not knocking your ride, Im just having a little fun with you. I have ridden many bikes over the years, everything I could get my grubby hands on....... everything from pocket bikes and mopeds through dirt bikes and cruisers, metrics,British and American. I never found one that wasnt a blast to ride.They all had something about them that I liked. Some were just more comfortable than others, imagine if you will 6'2" 220lbs riding a pocket bike that I can pick up with one hand, Im sure I looked like a Great Dane humping a football...... 8-)

Damn Todd I'm only 6' and 250 lbs.... Someone took extremely good care of this bike,, I have to ask Todd,,,did you leave the 1100's alternator conversion in place or did you remove it ? I also have to thank you a million times over for convincing me to go there with my bike...It's a joy to see that volt meter climb up to 14 volts after start up...I am thrilled with it.. It's proven it's worthiness to me... If I were a betting man, I'd say you left it in place and the guy loves the idea of it... Now just a warning, there will be many haunting nights where you will visualize your 1100 and how sweet it was and how easy it was to maneuver... Just ask Wing Admin... he hasn't slept right since. :lol: .. And when he looks up at the neighbors fence he see's my smiling face peeking over the fence haunting his ass... :lol: thata learn you guys ...gosh darn @#!$% lol :lol: Happy Friday to you Todd. Hell, Virgil doesn't even come around anymore..LOL

You would win that bet, yes I did leave the alternator conversion in place for Brad to enjoy. I will not be haunted by it other than I will get to see it around town every now and then. The 1100 is a very nice bike , rock solid reliable and even a little sporty when I pushed it hard, but I really do prefer the comfort of my 1500. Who knows, when I win the lottery I can always build a large shop and rebuild my stable of bikes. Then my biggest decision will be which bike to ride to where today....... 8-)
