Re: buy tires in usa; bring to canada

Here's the best advice you'll ever get on the subject of trying to lie to the customs officers about new tires you had installed in the states. "DON'T DO IT". Those people are not idiots and they've seen every trick ever thought of to try to illegally circumvent the rules. You will end up with an im...

Re: Bike insurance in Alberta

Try Intact Insurance. They have a vintage vehicle section that specializes in antique motor vehicles. I have several antique cars and trucks insured with them. I don't like them for regular insurance on any of my daily drivers but they are probably the best for the old iron. There will be an Intact ...

Re: Interstate Backrest Pads

Thanks. I was hoping you would be someone who replied. You know a lot about these bikes. The Aspencade pads are different than the Interstate pads for sure, and the trunk lids on 80-82 Interstates are the same so I think the pads must be the same. Thanks for trying to help me RBGERSON.

Interstate Backrest Pads

Hi GL1100 owners. I need to know if the passenger backrest pad attached to the trunks on 1980-82 Interstates are all the same part and interchangeable across all 3 years of that model. I have a chance to pick up a perfect condition used 1982 Interstate backrest pad to replace my ripped 1980 Intersta...

Re: speed VS rpm.survey,1980/1 GL's

Hey Ernest. What are the maximum speed limits in the country where you ride? 60 mph or 100 kph is very comfortable for a 1980 GL1100 and also what I would consider to be the sweet spot in RPM for both the 1980 and 1981 Goldwings.

Left storage pocket cover.

Does anyone know of a way to make the snaps on the vinyl cover over the left storage pocket a little less tight to snap off and on? I'm trying to reduce the strain on the material around the metal snaps to prevent tearing it from excessive pressure to unsnap the cover each time. Thanks for any tips ...

Re: It is never to early to plan: 2019 GoldwingDocs Gathering

It sounds like a great event you guys have started. Reviewing all the GoldwingDocs rides that have already happened, what were the highest posted speed limits everybody encountered as a group on the official rides? Do you typically stay off the Interstate highways on the planned routes?

" Tuffy" pot scrubber. Ouch! Better to use a soft rag and not anything with even the slightest abrasive in it for the stripes. Be careful and you won't have a problem ride don't hide.

Re: pinstripe removal

Bike must be parked in the shade out of direct sunlight or in a garage and have a cool paint surface, not warm. Use Easy-Off oven cleaner in the yellow can and do only small sections (6-8 inches) one at a time. Leave it on for NO MORE THAN 4 minutes then wipe it off. Move along to the next section a...

Re: Tacho cable too long?

All years for GL1100's used the same cable (Honda number 37260-463-000) so it can't be from the wrong year GL1100. That could only leave the possibility of an aftermarket cable, or it's still not routed correctly under the shelter. I don't have a spare Honda cable here to measure, but if someone has...

Re: replacing rear pads and rotor- what else?

If everything was working before you started the job, then just clean up the outside of the caliper and visually check the outside of the brake hose for wear or abrasions. If there are no visible issues with the caliper or hose then reassemble the rotor and wheel assembly, then the caliper as normal...

There are a couple of ways to sell it on ebay. You might choose to list it as strictly an auction item where whatever the highest bid is at end of auction takes the bike. This could be as little as a few hundred dollars if it doesn't go well for you. The better way is to put a reserve price on the b...

I am looking at your list of Oklahoma motorcycle laws and I see the last one says "Accept Motorcycle Endorsement From Other States". That's something I hope every state accepts. I've never even considered the possibility my license would be invalid anywhere in the USA or Canada.

There's no such thing as a bad year for GL1100's. The only questionable feature I dislike (and that's based purely on my own belief) is the linked brake system on the 83 model. I want to decide for myself how to brake with the front and rear brakes based on the riding condition, not automatically ha...

Personally I wouldn't bother trying to repair that fairing unless it has extreme sentimental value to you.
