Just a quick post to say hi. My name's Ian, my friends call me Yeti, and I'm from Bedfordshire, in the U.K.
I've just bought my first wing, a GL1000 first registered in '78, although I think she's a '77. 8-)
I rode one 500 miles on a holiday, many years ago, and I was hooked. Only just found one in my price range.
Apparently, she has a problem with the elctric start when hot, so I may be asking you guys for advice once I find out the symptoms.

Greetings Ian: Ask questions any time. There is a plate on the left side of the steering stem with the year of manufacture. Also the 78 has the three gauges on top of the tank. The tank looks totally different.
