New Guy from Houston

Post by CapKrk » Thu Oct 13, 2011 10:19 pm

Just bought a GL1100 tonight. I sold my Harley a couple months ago and decided to try a comfortable bike. The economy sucks and the price was right so I will see how this Honda runs.

Great site. I will be reading a lot.

Make sure you keep up with regular maintenance, and I think you will find your Honda "runs" far better than any other bike you've ever known. My 1100 is without question the smoothest, most reliable motorcycle I've ever known.

Welcome to Wing ownership! :)

Also welcome to the site from WI.
Getting a bit cool up here, but managed to put on 35 miles today on my old 82 A.
I'm sure you will stick with your new ride and will enjoy it too...
