Any tips for removing the rear wheel bearings on a GL1500, I've got the wheel out.

This is in the how to section, it's the front wheel bearings but scroll down to the part of the bearing removal tool made from a bolt and it's the same process for the rear bearings.

Thanks. A little job to do in the future, I'm off to the Isle of Man Classic TT next week.

Are you entering in the sidecar race? :D That is an awesome circuit, that I do not think would be easy at 'normal' speeds. I trust the weather is fine, and you have a great time.

I'm going with four other friends in a minibus so I have to take a solo. Five people and five bikes in a minibus is a snug fit. They are all riding Triumph twins, ageing from 1953 to 1967, but I am riding my latest acquisition a Moto a Guzzi Falcone. Ex Rome police it looks pre war but was made in 1967.

I don't know which of the three gentlemen pictured is your good self one of my friends I'm going to the Isle of Man with is the brother of the man at the back!

Those Guzzis look awesome, and you have a fine looking one there. It is a credit to you.

I would have Moto Guzzi if someone would drop one in my lap - just for doing the shopping on (I noticed the luggage rack). Have a great time, and soak up the atmosphere of that great road track - but dont ask me to try it out as I might get my ambitions mixed up with my capabilities :D
