Re: Looking for left Side trunk lids Honda gold wing gl1200 85

Check ebay as they have many listed and you might find your old one, I lost the left one from my 85 Vintage red, could not find one so bought a matching pair in Silver and they looked great with the Red and silver pin strip on my bike :mrgreen: . Good luck.

Re: Is the Goldwing the best bike you have ever ridden?

I have been ridding since I was 10 and I'm 78 now, I took a break from 1959-1971, USMC + wife and 2 kids and started again when I bought a new 1971 BMW R75/5 and rode it for over 100K mi., traded it for a new 1982 a R100RT tour model as the wife wanted to ride now as the kids where older. The BMW wa...

Re: Questions regarding "older" men and Goldwings

THANKS FOR THE QUESTION. :mrgreen: PS; I should have answered this on my last post. I just thought to let you all know I'm still ridding @ 78 but now on a ...

Hi Jacked; We have been getting so much rain here the dams are overflowing. I haven't been able to ride for the last two weeks and more rain coming this week. With any luck we both might be able to go for a ride soon, have a good one-ride safe. :mrgreen:

Re: Will it fit & work?

Looking to possibly put a 180/55-18 rear tire on a 2003 GL1800 ABS instead of the standard 180/60-18 Thoughts?? Should be no problem as the tire is going to be smaller in diameter but same width, the rear of the bike will be just a fraction lower with the 55 v 60 which is a % of the 180 width. :mrg...

Welcome to the best Goldwing site around, that is super low miles and should give you many years of fun.

Hi ibtater, you are on the best Goldwing site there is IMHO, I still think you have a gas cap problem and it takes 1 hour to let in enough air to allow the gas to flow, have you run the bike w/out the cap to test it? If the bike still stops @ 20 minutes you might have a fuel pump that is over heatin...

Well the last post I made was telling everyone that I sold my Valkyrie and Gl1200A as I let too many of my family tell me I should stop ridding on 2 wheels at 76, so I bought a 2014 Can Am RT. Well I can tell you that was the worst bike I have ever owned, all I can say is I felt like it would kill m...
