moose vs 82 GL 1100

Post by Zappawing »

long story.....won't bore the readers....we both walked away but blew a front tire (blown not a slow leak at 60 mph) first time in 55 years of riding I have been down......hard but not hospitalized

happened on BC/Montana border Canadian side. Pretty sure it was an American Moose however because that was the direction he headed in after my near coronary and I'm pretty certain he has a moose smirk on his lips at the time.

I am looking for chrome "ears" for the right side ...also possibly known as a headlight bracket.....also need a chrome headlight trim ring that secures the lens onto the headlight pot

any assistance appreciated....either used or new parts

thanks in kind

Congrats on coming through 'ok' and that it sounds like minor injuries for the bike.

glad you're ok.

I suspect it's a canadian moose though. Likely he figured crossing the border would save him from prosecution. :)
