Re: Anyone pulled a trailer?

I have pulled my home made trailer over 5,000 miles years ago, with my BMW R90/6.
Haven't tried pulling a trailer yet with my GL-1500, only because I haven't needed to yet.
But I wouldn't hesitate to do it if I was going on a long trip.

Re: Planning last ride. suggestions requested.

If you are planning to do that trip now, at this time of year, I'd say that you are already a bit too late. It is going to be cold up in Maine, and some of my favorite points of interest, like Mount Washington in New Hampshire, or Whiteface Mountain in New York will already have snow on top by the t...

Re: Feedback Re-Oil Consumption

My '76 hardly uses an oil either.
Something is wrong there.

Re: Helpful Tip

My '76 has some sort of aftermarket air & spring shocks on the rear. It sits up at the full extension of the shocks with nobody on it. But that thing rides like a brick in the rear. I suspect that the springs on those shocks are too strong for the weight of the bike. Despite that, I still can't get ...

The 1983 seems to be one of the hardest Wings to get on the center stand (so i have heard)....
I think that all of the early Wings were just as bad.
My '76 is just about impossible for me to get on the stand.
My '99 Wing weighs a LOT more than the '76, yet I can
get the '99 on the stand easily.

Just remember when packing for a trip.
You will inevitably take along several things that you don't need,
and forget to bring at least one thing that you really DO need!

Re: RAM Mount GDS Dock Handlebar Mount

I thought I had hit some rough spots. You guys sure you're not doing some of that enduro stuff on your wings? I've had my iphone 8+ in the x-mount for about a year now, IIRC, and it hasn't budged once. I normally use the included rubber thingy to keep it extra secure, but have forgotten to strap th...

Re: 2001 carbs on a 1989 gl 1500

2001 GL1500 carbs!
You should be able to sell those for a million bucks.....
....since Honda didn't make any 2001 gl1500s.
1500 production ended in 2000.
2001 was the start of the 1800, and those were fuel injected.

Re: First trip advice

Just remember, if a belt breaks, your engine is toast.
Pistons will hit valves doing lots of damage and you can junk that bike.

Re: Introduction and question

Welcome to the forum, Will. Sorry I can't help you with that hose. But I will tell you this. Before you put that bike on the road, REPLACE THE TIMING BELTS! That is an interference engine. If a belt breaks, valves hit pistons and goodbye engine. Only buy Gates or Napa belts. Instructions on how to d...

Re: Mileage

Similar situation here.
Previous owner of my '99 1500 put 70,000 on in 17 years,
roughly 4,000 miles a year. Not much really.
I've put another 27,000 miles on it in 2 1/2 years.
It should turn 100,000 before this season is out.

Talk about feeling like an idiot!!

Ok, I got a good one for ya. Just happened a couple of days ago. The shed where I keep my bike is at the end of a narrow alley alongside my house. I always pull into the shed forwards and back out. And my GL1500 has aftermarket chrome saddlebag guards that wrap around the rear and sides of the bike....
