WTB GL1500

Postby wehrd1 » Sun Sep 18, 2011 6:10 pm



wtb gl1500 within riding distance of quad cities ia/il area.

prefer an SE with options, but my budget will determine the option(s) i can afford.

by 'riding distance' i mean a 1 day out & back turn around. i work full-time and would only have a saturday to come get.

if seller would be willing to bring 1/2 would expand my search area.

i got to drive my fiance's 2010 gl1800 yesterday, and i'm sold. i'm moving up to a bike more capable of aiding my aging bones when we ride 4000 miles on vacations during the summers.

thanks for any heads up or leads.

i've searched ebay & craig's list and have a few leads, but would most def. prefer buying from a private seller, and even more so from a member of this board.

thanks guys!

Colleen

1997 gl1500se. 62k miles - lots of extra farkles over & above the normal SE options. pearl sapphire black :) metallic navy blue in sunlight (and flash modes, apparently), looks black in low light.

got it for $1000 less than the dealer had it listed for....yeah, i usually embarass my fiance' when 'wheelin' & dealin' :) I still had to go $500 over my 'budget' for one, because all the gl1500s I could find in my original price range were either REALLY basic or really POS with high miles.

i think i'm going to take the arm rests off though, not really liking the looks of them too much. My 14 y/o son does ride with me, and we go on lonnnnggggg bike vacations, but those arm rests really aren't positioned right to use them when sitting in a normal position....and i think they detract from the overall look of the bike.

Looks good. I'm with you on the arm rests. Thankfully my wife doesn't want them.
