Re: Latest Jaguar

That's got to be the coolest custom built trike ever! How does that tiny radiator handle all the heat from that V12? It's an oil cooler at the front... Look at the close-up shot of the engine from the left hand side, and you can see it's pipes running back to the oil filter housing. Looking at the ...

Update: My wife brought home a twelve pack of coke yesterday... It easily fit in the saddle bags and the trunk with room to spare.
What, four cans in each? :D

Re: GL1500 Bike and Tire Load-Rating, & Radial vs Bias-Ply

To the OP that had asked about a car tire on the back. Hi OldMopars, I'm the OP (of this thread anyways). The thread has just been revived from a couple of years ago. I originally asked three questions, and none of them were to do with running a car tire; they were about load ratings, delamination/...

Re: Contemplating moving up

I cannot tell you what it's like to ride a GL1800, as I never have, but yours is a question that many have asked here in one form or another. There are plenty of threads on this forum debating the pros and cons between the two models. To be perfectly honest, I think you need to have a good ride of w...

I suspect the fan does not work at the designed temp range or at all.
Then surely the engine would overheat when stationary?

Re: 98 gl1500 lower cowl melting

Wow, melting!

I would like to think its an exhaust leak rather than heat from the radiator, although I suppose the latter may be possible. Please let us know what you find!

Re: New to me '91 SE

I didnt realize the metzeler brand took such a dive since I last had my ear to the ground. I have not said the Metzeler brand do not make serviceable tires (for other bikes). There is just seemingly an issue with their rear tire sold as suitable for a GL1500. It seems to not stand up to the demands...

NO, don't put a Metzeler on it, unless you like tread separation and blow-outs... there have been many potentially lethal failures of Metzelers reported here. Please search the forums for info! Stick to a Dunl...

Re: TT time again!

In my opinion, the UK's absolute religious OBSESSION with "health and safety" above all other factors is obnoxious and a negative blight on the society. The "health and safety" cry is used as a trump card to excuse any ban, behavior or anything else the authorities deem unacceptable. You surprise m...

Obviously the TT is a bit of a "Marmite" subject but it's all right with me. Couldn't get there this year but am going to the Classic TT/ Manx in August.

Seems to me that most of the trouble in this world is from people who think that they know what's best for others and then try to force their will upon them.
