My longest ride
2 weekends ago I took my longest ride to date on my 1995 Gl1500se with 156,000+ miles. Went from SE Missouri to NE Indiana, roughly 650 miles one way. Went to see my brother. This is the farthest I have ever ridden a motorcycle, especially in 1 day. Took about 12 hours to get there. Took about 13 hours to get back because of riding in pouring rain for 3 straight hours.
I have new respect for my bike. I did lots of repairs/maintenance over the winter. All that work paid off in a great ride on a bike that performed flawlessly. Rain and sun it never stuttered. The thing that most amazed me was how great the Austone on the rear and the Battlax BT45 on the front felt. I have had issues before riding in the rain in Florida on other bikes, but the Wing and double darkside was amazing. No slips, no hydroplaning, just a great ride at 65-70mph in the pouring rain.
I love my wing and I am glad I took the time to do all that maintenance.
