Re: DIY Cheap Common Negative Ground / Hot Blocks

Thanks to all repliers. I'm familiar with the EC vendor, have long been a fan of them since they make so many items that are perfect solutions for common desires of GL1800 owners. Although I must say in the incidental case of WingAdmin's followup comment about the necessity of replacing the EC fuse ...

PIAA Powersports 1100 Driving Lights - Love 'Em!

FWIW, for anyone shopping for auxiliary driving lights: I ride a lot in back-roads "deer country". Some years back, out in the middle-of-nowhere-boonies at 3:00 AM on an Easter Sunday morning I literally got French-Kissed in the face by a leaping Bambi in the middle of a sweeper-curve at 5...

Re: Higway pegs

Not "if" but "when" the KuryCrappen Ergo pegs' chrome gets all pitted & rusty, check out the Rivco highway pegs for the GL 1800. Much better chrome quality, much cleaner design, much more adjustable and the footpeg mount even has a recessed allen-head clevis bolt to adjust th...

Re: Adding an avatar to your SIGNATURE

I'd greatly appreciate it if someone could tell me how to add the USA Map of "states visited" to the member SIGNATURE section. I already have the map pic, stored on my own PC, but don't see any click-link in the "signature" settings section to directly add the map to the Signatur...

Re: Do you wear your " Helmet "

I live in FL where we have no helmet law. As long as you're age 21 or older & can prove you have at least $10K worth of medical care coverage from any source, ya can legally ride bare-brained/hare-brained. How ridiculous. A mere helo-medevac ride will almost blow $10K these days, and your brain ...

Re: Tips for riding in the rain

"Had a 'rain-ride' once". After "losing an extra week" on vacation in Rocky Mtn Natl Park. So I had to hustle (big-time) home to (at the time) NY. Nasty Weather Sys was moving x-ctry from W to E. Couldn't outride & get ahead of it. Couldn't hole up and let it get far ahead of...

Re: Honda's New GL1800: With Leading-Link Front Suspension

The article content said, "The new design has emerged via patent in Japan, which reveals that the firm is already styling an effective front fender to suit the unusual suspension." Say what? "Effective front fender?" Look at the pic. With the fender in the artist's rendition, it ...

DIY Cheap Common Negative Ground / Hot Blocks

Hi All. New Member Here. Firstly, I'd like to say thanks to the forum-board owners/admins & all members. This forum is truly great. I was cleaning up some PC Stuff & ran across these old pics & figured I'd share the idea in case anyone else is interested. On prior GL1800s, I paid (way to...
