I have to wonder if this would work on the GL1500.

Re: Fourth Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering - Aug 19-23 2020

Does anyone have an approximate number of miles that we traveled from Wednesday afternoon until our last ride Saturday? Doing the math, (which I basely suck at) I only get 389 miles. Does that sound close to right? I came up with 914 miles in our " ventures ". Jeff, does that include traveling from...

Re: MICE ARE DRIVING ME CRAZY

I found a nest on my engine block a week ago. Don't remember seeing anything when I changed my alternator back in March, or when I did it after last years Gathering in September. Praying the I find only minimal damage as I tear it apart more this weekend.

Border is still closed and with the situation in the US I am not even sure we will be able to spend the winter i...

It might be a good idea for those who want to attend and are looking for a roomIe to post that info. I know that Corkster52 is looking for someone to share a room. There are probably others.
Well Al, Corky has got one now! My dad isn't coming. I think he's starting to feel his age.

Re: This is the most difficult bike I have ever worked on.

Back in 81 (at 23yo), I almost bought one new, instead, I bought an 81 Datsun PU. Waited till I turned 50 before I got an 84 Honda VF500C to learn on (Oh what a money pit that turned out to be).

Re: This is the most difficult bike I have ever worked on.

Thanks, this helps add to the list of "what not to buy". I know these are all great bikes, but sometimes don't you just want to go buy a ultra simple 650cc naked retro bike that you can see every part on it standing 6 feet away? A bike where the most exotic tool you need is an Allen wrench? I know,...

Re: Pros and cons of back off brake unit

I installed the XP last spring, when I installed all LED lighting (half my instrument cluster was out, so...). Opted for mode 1, on all brake lights. I don't have a spoiler to opt for just that brake light. Mounted mine under the seat, where I tapped into the brake wire.
