Brand new - out of the box - 2017 GL1800

Post by garlo » Sat May 12, 2018 12:29 pm



Come Monday [ May 14/18 ] I am getting my new bike.
Is there anything I should be concerned about with this year bike???

Thanks to all - you have - so far - been a great help to me with regards to finding what I needed to know on my ''old'' bike [ 2009 GL1800 ]

I have noticed on the ownership it is listed as a GL1800ALH

What does the ALH mean???

Check all the fluid levels ESPECIALLY THE FINAL DRIVE OIL. Goldwings are notorious for coming from the factory with low final drive oil and sometimes engine oil and coolant also.

Could not pass up the opportunity on the 17 wing.

Want it to be Monday already.

Keep me up to date on dates, and you bettchum Red Rider. I will even start turning on my cell phone, and give you the number when we get nearer the time. I also tour down thataway some times in the summer, so vice versa on the Timmies. Got some guys from Brantford that wanted to meet up for Lucan's Bacon fest and was thinking bout it, but not really seriously. Maybe now it would be an idea.

Thanks for the info
I am at the dealers to fetch the new ride so I will inquire then and will post the meanings.
No airbag on this one.

Found out at the dealer what they mean:
A = anti-lock
L = GL series
H = Year
