Brake job. . .

Well, it took me a total of three hours, but with the guidance and help from Ding Dong, I got the brakes on my 1996 GL1500 done today.

I double checked every thing, greased all the slider pins, flushed out all the old brake fluid, and found a few problems that required fixing or will as soon as I get the parts. Missing bolts, screws, retightened some bolts and screws, that kind of thing.

Ding Dong was a huge help, kept me from rushing and from removing stuff I didn't have to and showed me stuff I did not realize had to be removed too. . . . He is a man I am proud to call a friend ! Thanks again for the help buddy ! :D

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
