Re: My First Ride of 2015

That black windshield garnish along with the rest looks really nice. Wow. I'm liking. Thanks. It is a 'bra' like people used to put on the front of their cars many moons ago. It covers the window garnish as well as the front of the mirrors. I'll try to get a few better pics of it and upload tonight...

Re: New GoldWing Owner, 2015

Welcome and thanks for your service in the military. I may not be from the USA but I can appreciate the sacrifices you had to make to be able to serve your country. The 1500 wing is a fantastic bike, you will really enjoy her.

Re: My First Ride of 2015

The good weather did not last long. We got a dump of snow two days ago (nothing like out east thankfully) and we are looking at some more snow later today. Welcome to Calgary, the place where if you don't like the weather you just need to wait 10min because it will change. We should be back into mor...

Re: GL1500 shift shaft stabilizer mod. No drilling.

Peppi. I finally got a chance to try out the shift brace I bought earlier this winter and I must say everything I have read about this is true. Shift is much crisper, almost no effort to find the lower gears and in particular Neutral. A fantastic upgrade. Every 1500 needs this. Thanks for all you ef...

My First Ride of 2015

It's March 14, 2015 and normally Calgary is under a blanket of snow, but this year we have been experiencing an exceptionally warm winter. The roads are clean and there is hardly any snow to be found. I have to head out of town for a few errands so I could not pass up this opportunity to go for a ri...

Re: Licensing of Riders

That's true - but due to their distraction, they are usually travelling much slower than the flow of traffic. I'll give them a wide berth, get past them, and get some distance between me and them. Down here in Ohio, you get a ticket for texting while driving. It hasn't stopped (or even curtailed) i...

Re: Licensing of Riders

I am of the opinion that all drivers/riders should be required to take a road test and/or driver training course in order to renew their license. Everyone starts out with the best intentions to be the best driver around and eventually, slowly, bad habits set in, but they still think they are the bes...

Re: 1998 GL1500 Headlight upgrade. ANGEL EYES HIDs!

Fantastic looking! One last question - where did you get your "clear glass" headlight fixture? I have the OEM that came on the bike in 1990 - I've included a pic that I found online that matches what mine looks like. I've never looked into replacing the glass fixture prior to now, so I have no data...

I don't know about a 1000, but that is definitely a 1100 seat. It looks identical to the 82 and 83 I previously had.
