Re: Luggage capacity question

Have you seen the new extended capacity saddlebag doors for the new Goldwings by Corbin? They aren't inexpensive and don't add a whole lot of extra capacity but could be an option.

Re: 94 Honda Goldwing GL1500A mystery bolt

I don't recall running across chromed bolts on mine, does it belong to any accessories such as passenger arm rests, or maybe leftover from the trike conversion?

Re: traffic light stop/wait/go best practice?

A guy in my GWRRA chapter was helping me with some parking lot practice stuff and he said, basically, that only inexperienced riders put both feet down . While I don't agree with that 100 percent, as I continue to practice on maneuvers that will make me a safer rider, if having my having my right f...

Re: New to me GL1500SE, so much good info here!

I know next to nothing about photography. I do sometimes like how you can make something look like a model by blurring parts of the image...

Re: new (to me) 2000 gl1500. but had coolant leak?

I got my 2000 SE a couple years ago and had to track down a little coolant leak, turned out to be coming from this little plastic coolant manifold behind the right side radiator. The hose clamps just weren't doing their job after nearly 20 years, replaced the three clamps with standard hose clamps a...

Motorcycle parking at work and dog food.

Motorcycle parking at work. This day wasn't too crowded, sometimes the bikes are squished next to each other and we still run out of room, a nice benefit of riding to work besides the carpool lane on the freeway is you get front row parking right next to the carpool and disabled parking spots.

That's the radio mentioned in the Unobtanium 2.1 panel thread, how is the fit on the blanking panel? It looks pretty darn good, what about depth, does it clear the air filter ...

To the best of my knowledge it is a stock Honda Seat. I bought it on eBay from Everett Powersports.
I've bought parts on eBay from these guys before, then it occurred to me that I could simply ride there and get the parts seeing that they're only a short ride away, doh! :lol:

Re: GL1500 stereo upgrade/replacement

Its the Blaupunkt Toronto TRT1049 AM/FM Bluetooth Media Receiver. I don't have an opinion good or bad about this particular stereo, just that it is the perfect size for the area we have available, and for $10 to $15 it does seem to be a pretty good deal and has pretty decent ratings.

Re: GL1500 stereo upgrade/replacement

Crutchfield.com has a marine radio section both DIN media receivers (do not play CD's and are therefor relatively short) as well as ones that are similar to the one above. They have most specs like LxWxH for these so it takes some of the guesswork out. https://www.crutchfield.com/g_215950/Marine-Rad...

Not sure how many panels you have to sell to make it worth your while, but if you were thinking about another such item please consider a DIN radio adapter. If it could be done for about the same price as the UNOBTAINIUM 2.0 panels I would put my money where my mouth is and be your first customer :)...

It could be an "OPTION" but there would have to be an additional charge for the visor. It looks VERY seamless mounted on the panel, , , , Glend...

Is this running too cold?

Granted it's a bit nippy out at 35°F and it wasn't that long of a ride, it may have moved up a needle's width more if I rode longer. How does this compare to others riding around in cold weather? In the summer it does move up a little more. Not looking forward to replacing the thermostat if that's r...
