Bike is pretty low mileage and was stored inside so when I bought it and cleaned Alaska off and the mouse condo out I was happy to see its overall good shape.

Sticker is my mileage reminder for when I replaced the timing belts because I'd never remember.

Replaced the rear tire yesterday added some airsoft bb's to balance it, and went for a ride. Also changed rear end oil, just so I knew what I had.

Airsoft BB's? How does that work, and how many in there? I'm trying dynabeads this week in our trailer, but those things are pricey...

Took a ride after finishing up my handlebar and stainless brake lines swap. I'm very satisfied with the results. Well worth the headscratching.

Not sure how I did it, , , but, without warning, the speakers of my $20 radio quit working. So I bought a new radio for $13.99 (Wallyworld), slapped it in, and its all good-to-go. I must've blown a circuit on the old radio. I figure if I blow a radio every 12-18 months, it'll take about 10 years before it stops being "cost-effective". The bluetooth pairs to my headset and iPhone, the Aux-in plays music from the phone, and using the NAVI app on the phone I never get "lost". The USB port charges the phone so i never have to worry about the phone going dead. The USB port also plays MP3's from a thumbdrive when reception in the hills/mtns gets too bad. "loudness" ON/OFF is great for freeway speeds, and selective equalizer helps with clarity. Mama is "partial" to the fact that the remote control lets her "over-ride" my choice in music. This setup is a "quantum leap" ahead of the crappy little Kenwood radio (stuffed in the left fairing pocket) that came standard from Honda.

new kenwood front speakers and baffles. painted metal speaker grills. replaced speaker cloths. cleaned & polished instrument cover and bezel. i went to joann fabrics to get some sheer black curtain material as i think satan mentioned he did. when i got what i thought was close enough an took it to the cutting table the woman asked what it was for and i said i was restoring speakers on my wing and to both my delight and surprise she said "we have speaker cloth". it was a good day with a very welcome surprise.

No pics (cause we've all seen a Wing with the plastic off), but I finally got around to the speedo cable. My boy and I spent half an hour trying to get our hands worked up around to unscrew the old cable, and gave up. Pulled the dash, because we decided that this would be a good time to install the Polk speakers I got over the last 2 Christmases.

I also had a thought about adding Bluetooth to the stereo. In the past, I've used a car cassette adapter running to the phone, but I don't want that extra wire hanging around. I know they make BT cassette adapters, so I started browsing them on Amazon and found


. That dongle that hangs off the thing has a charging port on it. My plan is to run a cable to it and have that thing under the top cover and cassette door. I know the door will close on smaller wires, so as long as I've got enough room under the cover, this should work. That'll keep the adapter charged as long as the bike is on (assuming I get power from a switched point).

I'm late to the party here but I got a new Dunlop E4 put on last week. I almost forgot how nice a new rear tire feels. No humming when in the corners. So smooth. Also, added chrome light covers on the side fairing lights. Can never have too much safety chrome! 1989 GL1500

you just reminded me that about six weeks ago, I put on a new E4 rear tire.
Rode it a whole 1 mile since then. wow! huh?


Life got in the way, took a vacation thru the Southeastern states, and then bunged up my right shoulder so I can't hold the bike up straight, nor can I reach forward to grasp the throttle.
