Re: Electrical Connection LED Headlight

Scott, just to make sure I am ordering the right thing, is this what I need to buy from Electrical Connection to make mine like yours? I ask because it does not say for GL1500 Clear H4 LED Headlight Bulb Kit, Dual $109.95 Quantity 1 SKU: 01054 Categories: front lighting products, replacement bulbs T...

Re: Electrical Connection LED Headlight

After having had the pleasure of being on a couple of rides with Scott during the 2nd Annual Gathering, I can strongly attest that his current lights are very bright, but for some reason not offensively so. The sad part is, the site now says... H4 LED Headlight Replacement Bulbs for Honda GL1500 by ...

Re: GL 1500,89

If I keep my rpms below 3000, I get considerably better mpg. 3000 rpms is right at 67 mph on my old girl. If I hold at that, on relatively flat roads (which almost all of norther Ohio is) I can get 40 mpg.

Doug, I'll be moving from Perrysburg Ohio to Naperville before Thanksgiving. I'm relatively mechanical and I have leaned on a lot of experts as I worked on first my 88 GL1500 and now my 99 GL1500. If you get the hang of private messaging on this site I can drop you more personal stuff. Congrats on y...

Dave, thanks for showing us the back roads from Mineral Wells to Delaware! :D My daughter graduated from OU a few years ago and there were many times I wish we would have taken that route instead (although the wife might have gotten a bit carsick on the twisties).

Re: 2nd Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering - Sep 13-16, 2018

Enjoyed the long weekend very much, in spite of an action packed gravel road detour on Saturday. :shock: I was pleasantly surprised to find I still had some level of recall on how to read gravel and dirt pack from back in the late 60s on a Sears moped and later a Honda CB350. Al did a relatively sup...

Re: The Biker Wave...

I wave to everyone I have time, and a spare hand to do so. I thought it was funny, a while back when I was taking a class to get my license, the instructor said "I wave to everyone on two wheels!" Guess he didn't care for trikes.

I have been "reriding" (after a 30 year pause) for 8 years now and attended such a class last year. I am a GWRRA member, so I went to their class (ARC). There was lots ...

H6M replacement with LED recommendation?

I just discovered that the PO installed H6M bulbs in the non-standard cornering lights he put in my 1999 Aspencade. If I wanted to go with an LED bulb replacement instead, what is a good one to buy?

I've only used them once, so far, but I had good luck at Babbitt's when I needed parts. Their pricing seems competitive, and shipping was quick. Wish they went back further than 2005. Just at Babbits and they went back to 1977 on Honda for parts, were you looking for something specific? No, but whe...

Re: Need Parts

I didn't mean anything bad about Cyclemax, it just brings me to something I should be thinking about all of the time, "is this purchase the most practical use of my dollar?". Even though I reap the benefits of PRIME purchases, I very seldom purchase bike parts from them.

I put an E4 on the front about 6 months ago and did the rear a few weeks ago. There is a little noise when cornering, but not bad.
