Does anyone have an idea of what the weight of a loaded GL1200 Aspencade would be. The seller of this bike to me said it was about 1200 lbs., I can't believe it would be so heavy. Any ideas? Thanks, Ralph

Just last week, I took my '87A to the scales. Really wanted to weigh my trailer, but went ahead and checked the bike while I was there. The bike, with two helmets in the trunk, empty left saddlebag and numerous miscellaneous tools in the right, weighed in at 880 lbs. Had approx 1/2 tank of fuel. Hope this helps...

That's about right with rider and pillion included. I rolled across a truck scale a couple of weeks ago with a nearly full tank in my '85 LTD, and both me and one of my daughters on board. She's pretty small, but I'm not quite so much. ;) The scales registered in 50 lb increments, and displayed 1200 with us on it.
