:waving:The '83 GoldWing was the first GL1100 to come from the factory with a fork brace. The brace adds stability to the forks which equates to better handling overall.I seen fork braces for sale on eBay, I have a 80' gl 1100 w/ Vetter fairing.
What does it do for handlingof the bike? Why didn't it come with it from the factory
:waving:As I mentioned in my previous post the 1983 GL1100 was the first GoldWling to come stock from the factory with a fork brace.the 1000's had poor front suspension and the braces on them helped make the front end more stable.... not sure what year honda added it to stock
