I wish Honda had not done away with the compressor andair supply hose in the right side saddlebag. I found it pretty handy on the 2 GL1500's I had.

I used it more often to help someone else.

Maybe, but it sure was useful for pumping a tire up when it ran low miles from anywhere.

Would have been nice to have still had the compressor, I carry a small one now just for helping others with flat tyres, or myself if it came to it.
