The Honda OEM passenger armrests are great. They look great and are very functional.
They mount in place of the speaker top pads and not on swing-out arms to they don't get in the way of anything including opening the trunk.
They have a very sturdy mounting system that tucks out of sight but is very strong. Passengers can lift themselves up to adjust their seating position by pressing down on them with their elbows and not budge them at all.
My wife loves them. Easy to use as armrests and don't get in the way of mounting and dismounting either.
I'll attach some pics of mine installed.
I do not believe these are available for a GL1500. They are for the 2001 to 2017 GL1800.
1998 - GL1500 w/175,000 miles
2003 - GL1800 w/106,000 miles
