Gl 1500 Landing Gear

Postby robb » Tue Sep 07, 2010 12:01 pm



Have'nt had my 89 Goldwing for long but after purchasing had another stroke, my third now. Unwilling to discuss giving up on riding and not wanting a 3 wheel the landing gear might be the best choice. Rode yesterday after nearly 3 weeks of sideline and just can't get away from 2 wheels.
Has anyone used this setup and where can they be bought. Bike is not bad riding solo but with wife onboard I must think of what is best for all.

There was a company building them out of Louisiana, but they were wiped out by Hurricane Katrina. I don't know of any companies still producing them.

There is a company "Leg-up Landing Gear" but its $3595. Thats a little rich to try without knowing how it holds up.

I had a look at the LegUp site. They have them for 1500's and 1800's. Other landing gear I have seen for Goldwings is pretty beefy - it has to be. These things look like tiny little caster wheels. I don't know that I would trust them to hold my bike up, especially at 10 mph (which is the speed they come down or retract):

I'm no bigger than the guy in video so it might hold me up. But the Show Chrome heated grips come in today so the hands should be ok.
