Re: Left saddle bag will not open

I hope you're able to resolve this without spending a bundle. That front latch on mine broke on a recent trip and wouldn't latch. I had a roll of duct tape with me and taped it up to the roof of the bag and it then latched. When I got home and to my dealer a week later they covered it under warranty...

Re: Do you have a vintage ride??

Not yet. I just got my new 2016 last year. I wish I still had my GS1100E. That was a great bike. I bought when I was 18y and in the Navy. Rode it from Memphis to San Diego, arriving in SD on my 19th birthday. Back and forth from DFW a couple times. Unfortunately, it was totaled when a woman ran a st...

I've had my 2016 for almost 18 months. This will be my second winter and since I bought it in July I've pretty much ridden through two summers in North Texas.

Re: JACO FlowPro Digital Tire Inflator Gauge Review

That might work well then.

Plus, I hadn’t thought about just replacing my chuck before, but have found screw on chucks and one that has three “clips” instead of just the one like mine has. So, I have a few choices. The JACO unit might be good for additional reasons.

Re: Honda Intercom or Bluetooth, what is better?

The HJC IS-MAX2 is a modular (flip-up) helmet with pin-locks and internal drop-down sunshade (sun-glare is a non-issue now). It has one of the highest, and most reliable "impact-ratings" on the market. When you combine the "decent" neck-roll pad with a chin curtain($15) the wind noise is non-existe...

Re: Parking

The 1500’s can be in 1st gear and reverse at the same time? Odd,but cool.

If I want a “parking brake” I just put mine in reverse before turning it off.

I simply plug my iPod into the 3.5 connection in the left fairing pocket and turn up the volume.
I would have done this too, but there's no way to control it this way other than the volume using the bike's controls.

Totally depends on the year model of your GL1800. I believe the 2012 to 2017 had MP3 on SD card capability incorporated into the sound system from the factory.

Re: MP3 options

For my 2016 I got a 16gb flash drive and plugged it into the trunk usb port. I have around 450 songs on it in two folders and usually just have it play songs randomly. If I go want to put over 500 songs I'll create another folder. This can be controlled with the controls on the handlebar easily.

Re: Bluetooth Communication Question

I think the "squeeling" issue you're worried about was an issue with rf transmitting devices. That's not how BT works and is not an issue. Today's BT enabled helmets and helmet setups are designed to be used between other riders and rider and passenger.
