Re: Do you wear your " Helmet "

I like wearing a helmet, I always wear it along with all my other riding gear. Just as I put my boots on to go for a hike, (I wouldn't go tromping around the mountains barefoot either). Imagine what it would be like to come off at 70 mph and bounce along the road without proper gear on. Yikes. I wea...

Re: Group Rides

Yeah, I'm not a group rider either, after more than 40 years on 2 wheels, I've never done one. I like going to motorcycle events though, where like minded folks all congregate, show up on their own, enjoy the event and then go your separate ways. chunk.

Re: Is the Goldwing the best bike you have ever ridden?

I've had almost 40 motorcycle's in the last 40 plus years or so, currently I'm on a BMW K75, and a Yamaha XT500, I had an 1982 gl1100 and it was okay, but i just never bonded with it, don't know why. One bike that I sold was a 2001 Honda ST1100, that was a bike I probably should have kept. It had bo...

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

For me, right, foot down, in neutral. I stop several feet back from the car in front and line up on the outside of that car. It gives me a clear path ahead if need be and if a cage does not stop they will rear end the car, not me. I also watch the traffic coming up from behind, and if they are comin...

Re: "U" joint question

I haven't looked at the splines in the rear drive area yet, but will do soon. It came with brand new tires front and rear so i didn't have a need to remove the rear wheel. I guess i do now. I always have hope that the independent shop where this was always serviced would have looked at, and lubed th...

Re: "U" joint question

Thanks for that, but i know what you mean and it's not really that. It's more like someone is striking the underside of the pegs with an end wrench, sounds silly i know, but that's what i think of when i feel it. It happens so quickly it's hard to diagnose. I'll keep investigating and will appreciat...

Airing up a set of forks question

Greetings all, i rebuilt the forks on my 1981gl1100 today, and I am wondering how to go about pressurizing the forks. I know not to use a compressor, but the hand pumps at all the usual online places are really costly. i just can't see spending $50-$100 for a pump to introduce about 15 psi. The rebu...

Re: Oem grip question

I've looked at the Honda diagrams but that really doesn't help much, since the part isn't available to buy, and i can't see what it looks like, it's just a representation of the part. What i really need is a clear picture of stock bar end from an '81 gl110 if anyone can post one. If i know what it l...

I took these awful grips off my new to me gl 1100. I see that there are some kind of bar ends that are supposed to be on the end of the bars. I'm trying to find what they look like, i haven't found any pics anywhere. I have a set of Honda oem grips coming and would like to source the correct ends or...

Re: 1981 gl1100 I footrests WANTED

I replaced my stock GL1100 footpeg Rubber with a GL1200 Rubber footpegs - The 1200 are wider and more comfortable - You need to remove the nut UNDER the footpeg that holds the rubber to the footpeg mount and them pull the rubber off - use WD40 to slide the ruuber inserts will slide off the metal fr...
