Re: Survived deer hit at 55 mph

Tuesday Progressive is coming out to inspect my bike. They have te"ed me up expecting it to be totaled. Let you know. About 10 days after hitting the deer I think, "gee did I get comp" thinking for sure I didn't get collision. Will I have both! Smart move thank you. I'm used to insuring "older" bike...

Re: Survived deer hit at 55 mph

Appreciate the comments and shared experiences. As of today I am feeling a lot better about..riding in general. I am not gonna ask my SO to go riding with me anymore. She is pretty much done and likes to see me ride as much as I can. I really like the GL...and the fairing actually played a part in m...

Re: Survived deer hit at 55 mph

I wish I would have gone back and looked for the wind fairing wing louvers, radiator exhaust fins, and deer. It left enough hair and spit. After a look over I just kept on keep'in on. Couple in truck did not stop. I see I was knocked over on the left engine guard at full lock. Did its job! Little sc...

Re: '00 1500 SE with rear speakers and no CB/fader

I looked up VIN and Ta-DA! It IS an Aspencade. PO must have installed rear speakers and air valves on forks. Speakers don't work (apparently need a fader/harnes). The PO told me it was an SE, I saw the air valves and speakers, so in my ignorance fig it was. My learning curve waw just beggining. So i...

Re: '00 1500 SE with rear speakers and no CB/fader

yea I'm convinced my bike is not an SE even though prev owner said so. A PO must installed the speakers thinking that was all he/she had to do.

So the belts must have a history of breaking due to age. The wing has 7,000 miles.

Thanks!

Re: '00 1500 SE with rear speakers and no CB/fader

No additional CB ANT you can see the "blanks" where it would go. The CB "hole" looks super clean. The radio has the CB control knobs. I cannot find a fader. I will ck VIN. Yes I can see/got to one of the rear speaker. I bought the Honda service manual. Maybe I will pull the radio see if anything loo...

'00 1500 SE with rear speakers and no CB/fader

Lucky me, i found a 2000 Annivers Model last fall with 7k miles in excellant shape. It says on title and PO says it is an SE. There is no CB. Has cassette. I am now looking into the lack of sound from rear speakers. I have found the under seat single connector splitting off to both sides and am abou...
