GL1500 Dash mats?

I've been looking for a dash mat / dash carpet for my 1500 and keep coming up with dead links, anyone have a good connection?

I came up with the same thing as you - lots of links to products no longer for sale.

I would watch eBay - it seems like they might show up there from time to time, as I found search results pointing to eBay sales that are already finished.

The description says 1500 OR 1800 but the picture show1800, you might call them and make sure.

T_Birdman, I sent you a PM

Lots of pictures but none for sale on ebay. Was hoping for someone here with a fresh connection, thanks.

I saw the same link but the drop-down menu doesn't list a 1500 preference, I will check with them but it seems suspect to me if they interchange between an 1800 and a 1500, thanks joe!

If you lurk on ebay long enough they will probably appear. Just makes the hunt that much richer :D :D This did remind me I wanted to get a small towel to toss over my dash for the summer days when I park my bike in the sun. Dont want my LED panel to suffer the moon syndrome :D :D

That seems to be a bum link as well. I tried to call but got a marketing recording for an over "50" medic alert device that I don't need lol! And the e-mail also seems outdated (is AOL even still an option??). But thanks Dusty!!
