looking at an interstate

I know they have no reverse.that probably takes a half pound of weight off.why did honda do that.if I buy it I will change the belts.they have not been ever.163,000 miles.this will make my 7th wing if I buy it.did they not have cruise control either? If so then its throttle lock time.the 1500s are too heavy in town.but on the road they are great

1991 saw the arrival of the Interstate, which was now the basic model. The Interstate was 40lbs lighter, due to the lack of reverse gear (no, you couldn't fit one later on folks), cruise control and on-board air suspension compressor, more basic sound system and passenger footpegs instead of boards. Interestingly, Honda lowered the seat height of the Interstate by almost an inch by skimming some of the foam, but didn't do so with the other models.

What does the weight of the 1500 have to do with a throttle lock ?

all of my Goldwings had Cruise Control, and if I am at cruising speed, the CC is locked on.

only had one bike with a throttle lock, that was a Honda ST-1100.
my gripe with that one, was it kept slipping and slowing down,
and it obviously would not adjust for going uphill, nor downhill.

Sounds like you are saying you need a throttle lock because the 1500 is to heavy.

I think he means it as a figure of speech, kinda like "it's go time." maybe, just taking a guess or stab at it.
