GL1500 just turned 100k. Started about a month ago and changed fork oil, plugs, timing belts, (old ones had 50k and looked really good) water pump, new E4s, rear end oil, greased drive shaft splines and changed brake and clutch fluid. Got aboard with wife and headed west from home in Western NC. Hope to maybe never see south Kansas again but Colorado is a different story. Mesa Verde, Hwy 550 Durango to Montrose, up Arkansas river, Rocky Mtn. park, Steamboat Springs, corner of Utah including Flaming Gorge, into Wyoming to Yellowstone. Was going on to Glacier Park but bad weather and rip off motels forced us to head east where a new buddy put us up for a couple of days in Deadwood SD JUST AFTER THANK GOD the Sturgis rally. Devils Tower, Crazy Horse, Needles Hwy, Mt. Rushmore and the Badlands. St. Louis arch on the way home. 15 days and 5750 miles. Was going to Oregon Pacific Coast Hwy. but could not face the 100plus heat of Utah and Nevada. Disappointed to miss Glacier but at leased we did'nt get battered by the hail storms. Hopefully get to fill in the gaps another time.
