If you're smelling grass on the radio, Kit, then you have the "Cheech and Chong" edition of the GL?

Might be, does make me a bit light headed at times. Kit

The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike.

Whats wrong with doing the Jitter Bug. I do agree there are times that the radio could be distracting. I took mine off and for the most part enjoy the silence. I normally wear ear plugs anyways. Don't get me wrong sometimes I do miss the radio

Well...that's what I'm saying, Ciaran...when defusing a bomb, you wanna be careful to clip the CORRECT wire, the first time!

Oh, alright, you guys...yeah, I have my peccadilloes...not to be confused with armadillos!
Come on Pete, it's always the red wire, don't you watch any movies? Every single time it's the red wiiiire.................................Uh,,,,,, unless it's the blue one. hmmmmmmmm.

And as I tell people at the service center I work at when they ask " Is there a cheap way to turn off the check engine soon light? I hand them a piece of electrical tape and say "Here you go, And if you want us to install it it's a minimum 1/2 hr labour."

No question A.T.G.A.T.T. (Even when it's stinking hot!!)
And if it's too stinking hot to gear up, it's too stinking hot to ride.

If your not man enough to take the lead, stop complaining from behind.

Reading through Motorcycle Pete's memorial thread, he was obviously a well loved member of this forum and the Goldwing community.
