Here it is on the right with my 95 on the left.

Rode the 93 up to the gas station for a road test, felt great! Went right up to 75 mph easy, and wanted to go faster!
What a beautiful Bikes, the tribute one is ready for a show, ( I know the wrinkles on the seat cover will need some heat to vanish, as you stated a few months ago) you made me appreciate again the beauty of the GL1500 because the other one is very nice too!
Congratulations Silverado6X6!

Been thinking long and hard about getting a set of these. Need to talk with my riding buddy down in OKC and see which way he wants to jump. I like BT but don't want to limit myself in case others are using CB.

This won't stop BT, you just have to add a BT adapter to the regular plug in harness.

Which is exactly the reason I chose to go with a wired helmet hookup, it leaves me open to more options.

New Brake Pads - Front and Back

Finished the front pads and then decided to look in the shop manual on the shelf to "see if I did it right". Pays to read first. I didn't have to remove the calipers to change the pads - just take out the retaining pin and they fall right out

Glad I read it before doing the back brakes. Thought I was going to have to pull the wheel to get to the caliper. Instead, pulled the retaining pin and voila, old pads out, new pads in.

Guess I ought to read the book more often!

Ordered VStream Clear Special Edition Windshield

Wife is always complaining about the wind in the back seat. From what I've read online, this windshield should do the trick. Can't wait for the box to arrive

The 1800 has the easiest brakes and rear wheel to service than any other Goldwing. It does pay once in a while to pull the calipers and grease the slider sleeves.

Installed a new lactrical alternator today .i initially put the rubber dampers in wrong but when I realised and fit them properly it went in fairly easy. Might send the old one off for a refurb it would make a decent sprare
