It will work really good if I ever need to get push started.
To tell the truth I should have cut all of the stuff in the inside and leave the square perimeter of the trunk mounting rack intact.
I plan on picking up the trunk rack but not a trunk

Re: Forgive me for I have sin (going trunkless)

I should be picking up an '85 aspencade that the PO removed the trunk from. I like the look of it that way and I still have my 1500 if I need a trunk or i'll use my small wolfman waterproof duffle bag

Re: Which alternator for HIGH Amps?

I have the DB electrical 95a alternator on my '93 but I can't remember when I put it on ( 2012 I think ) I know it was on in '14 when I did my first IBA ride. it has been trouble free, like most every one else I was looking for a high output alternator that cost less than a compufire. as for the bat...

Re: 90K on a used GL1800

I have 103,000 on my wing and it runs fine and in very good condition. I got it used with about 36,000 miles on it. that being said I know my how I took care of my wing but I doubt I would buy a wing ( or any other bike ) with close to 100,000 miles

Re: Is Spring finally coming?

no snow but cool temps here so I rode on the first day of spring and yesterday I'd like to pick up a BMW GSA later this year. Yours is an 2011 air cooled correct? If so is it really noisy at hwy speeds compared to your previous or current liquid cooled engines? I have no idea how noisy or not the a...

Re: GL1200 vs. GL1500 Advantages?

I had an '84 aspencade and my '93 SE at the same time. the 1200 had progressive shocks and springs, it also had an external alternator. it rode nice enough but lacking ground clearance I didn't think it handled all that well. there were no ( or few ) LED or HID light options at the time so night tim...

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