Re: Make Gl1000 Headlight Brighter?

Rob I believe that all 7" headlights will fit. The thing to remember is the light pattern. There looks like there all a lot of one's mostly for Harley's that would fit and LED'S . As the LED'S take less power than incandescent (stock) there should be the power in the GL1000 to light the road up nice...

Re: Make Gl1000 Headlight Brighter?

My first Goldwing was a 77 GL1000. With low light output, I researched for a "MOTORCYCLE" replacement one. What I found ( & got) came from the UK. (Halogen bulb) BUT was true light for a motorcycle as it had a cut off of light not to blind on coming drivers and a up lighting on right side for road s...

Re: My Fall trip 2018

You have a map site (spotwaller) in there, but no actual mapping.

There should be a "test" ride. Trip starts in the 15th, web set to start tracking it Saturday morning 6AM.

Thanks for checking in.

Re: Some Questions about "New to Me" 1988 GW GL1500

"But I'm guessing I'd have to replace the bushing in the levers"

That lest the bushing are easy. Check the the lock nut to be sure it not to tight just a little will keep the lever from going all the way out.

Hi Brian, If last year was any indication, there's NOTHING formal about this group! A few people have some ideas as to where we might ride, but as far as I know, nothing is set in stone. Most likely start daily rides about 9:00am. No vendors, no activities as such, lunch a diner somewhere, maybe dr...

Re: Whats on YOUR Bucket List ?

Chickenlegs
My 2018 bucket list ride.. is to take the wing to "little Switzerland" (Ouray, CO.) then take the "Million Dollar Highway" (550) to Silverton, CO. then back home to Nebraska.

Is a very nice ride! Depending how you get there think about Rocky Mountain Nat Park and MT Evans.

Enjoy I did.

I like the (rubber type) just wire tie it up and out of way when not needed. Pictures are from trailer side (ease...
