Re: Planning my first big trip

In my opinion, you have picked a good time for travel. High country can be 'brisk', but the desert areas are already 'warm'.

Re: GL1000 Radiator Replacement

A radiator shop will also pressure test it and probably give it an overall professional inspection/evaluation.

Re: Heading for Tucson....what should we see?

I would research any upcoming Williams train rides. I understand they are usually booked far in advance. Hopefully I could be mistaken, though.

Re: Electrical problem-replaced two alternators

A couple things come to mind:

1) Are you certain that the battery is healthy? Can it take and hold a charge?

2) Have you checked for any power drains or electrical short circuits?

If you are parting out a GL1000, might you have the top fork cap bolts?

Wow. Plenty of travel room for the handlebars.. :twisted: I might suggest you go with braided steel lines, at least in front. The rear can be a real bugger to replace.

Re: 76 GL1000 LTD Vetter

Here are before and after pics of mine that I bought from the original owner back in June. I obviously have a ton of stuff ready for Ebay (fairing, trunk, air horns, lower air dam, auxilliary side fuel tanks, etc). The fork brace and (homemade?) leather gators are of course non-stock.

Being the proud owner of a '76 LTD myself, I'm curious as to whether you have any pictures of your bike with that set up. Any that you can post here?

I'm fortunate to have 3 Wings : A 94A and a '76 LTD here in Phoenix, and a standard '76 stored at my brother's place back in Michigan (my personal Fly N Ride program). :lol:

Congrats on 'stepping out' and joining in. We've actually been fairly soggy (relatively) here in Phoenix as well, and it's been nice having sunshine again.
