Re: A new bike...

A riding buddy of mine has a GL1500, Suzuki 800 (Volusia? pre Boulevard) and a 650 Bergman. We just completed a 2000 mile trip to Arizona and he thinks he will use the Suzuki for his next long trip but is considering the Bergman. He rides the Bergman when ever his knee is acting up. It would be nice...

Re: Garmin 595 with Tpms sensors.

Has any one had success with the Garmin TPS? I just bought a Garmin 590 with intentions of adding the TPS. But if no one has had any luck with them, I'm not wasting $70.

Re: A new bike...

Congratulations on the new bike! Looks great! Obviously I prefer the weight of the 250 Virago I originally had, but it did not have an engine large enough to make highway riding very comfortable. Are there any cruisers you would recommend, on the lighter end of the scale (for a young lady with simi...

Re: Sena CB adaptor for Goldwing

I cannot help out with the CB part of the question. I do, however, have a Freewire on mine and as far as everything else besides the CB it works very well. Everything that can be heard through the bike's speakers is transmitted into my helmet's SRL headset. . Good to hear. I'm just not sure that it...

I'd love to but it would cost me upwards of $500 for rider and passenger so
I'll wait and see if the prices drop or I find a great deal on a couple used.
They've been out for at least 2 years, so some good used ones should be around by now. And you would still need 2 headsets at around $200 each.

My 84 year old riding buddy has Handicap plates on his 2000 GL1500 SE with 145K on it. He doesn't get "Strange" looks, it's more like looks of PURE AWE!

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

I have a friend that hangs his handicap tag from the handlebars of his maxiscooter and amazingly no one has taken it. If you are just stopping for pictures or a quick dash into the brush you will be good. That's amazing! Here in CA, you can't leave your window down an inch to let hot air out while ...

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

We've got a Senior Pass from back when they were $10 for a life time card. I don't think we'll spend a lot of time in any one place, but if we do, I sure won't be putting that card on my bike. I believe they cost $80 now. It wouldn't last 10 minutes before somebody slipped it off and pocketed it.

Try a jumper from the battery ground to the cb frame and the trunk cb antenna ground strap as a test.
I'll get the radio back on Wednesday and give this a try.

Re: CB Harness on GL 1500

Are you saying the mic will work on the passenger connector but not on the rider connector? You can pull the left storage compartment out and you will see where that plug, that you hook your headset to, goes on the bike. You will have to remove the seat go get to see where the passenger connector i...

CB Harness on GL 1500

My cb first started making me sound like I was talking in a tunnel, then started breaking up, then quit transmitting my voice completely. Just a muffled hum. I sent it off to Sierra for repairs and was told there is nothing wrong with the radio. After talking with him and determining that it was not...

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

If you have the time when you get to Williams you can take the Grand Canyon railroad. Makes for a nice change from being on the bike.
I've always wanted to do that ride, but we're not going to have time this year. We'll save it for another time.

Thanks

On your way from Tucson to Cottonwood Take the 69 off of I17 up to the 89A, right at 89A over Mingus Mountain down into Jerome (an old mining community now an artist haven) on to Cottonwood. Leaving Cottonwood go on up through Sedona, Oak Creek canyon to Flagstaff and on to California. An alternate...

Very pretty around Sedona (not far from Cottonwood) when I was down there, don't miss it. Yes, it's beautiful around Sedona, but for the weekend we will be there, the few vacant rooms are pretty expensive. That's why we're staying in Cottonwood. Thanks.

Five of my riding friends, and I, are going to Oro Valley, near Tucson, for a few days in early May. We've been there before, but this time some of our wives will be following in a car. We'll stop in Wellton, near Yuma, for one night. We plan to visit the Yuma Territorial Prison while we're there th...

Re: New to me GL1500SE, so much good info here!

Stew, how's that cassette adaptor from Best Buy working out? I've used several different brands from various stores and have never had one last more than a few weeks. Paid anywhere from $5 to $20, never had one last.
