When I first bought my GL1100 in July of 2007, it was pretty basic. No stereo, and no chrome accesories. Just the basic Wing. But she was beautifully clean with low mileage and well taken care of. I got her for a steal really. Anyway.....as time went on I wanted to dress her up and slowly I began finding things for my bike where I work. I only bought a couple of items new off the internet and Ebay. Lately I just struck a Goldmine! We stripped a GL1100 at work with some great stuff that I got for my bike.:cool:

Recently
I picked up:
-chrome carb covers
-chrome plug wire covers
-chrome fuel pump cover
-chrome shark fin grills
-chrome signal light covers for the fairing
-chrome trunk luggage rack and.....
-saddle bag chrome rail with the lightbar..............all for $80:dude::dude::clapper:

All this added to my previously acquired items:
-chrome tailight cover
-highway pegs
-chrome air duct vent covers
-new grips
-chrome throttle lock
-speakers, antenna, CD player

and add to my soon to be acquired items:
-chrome timing belt covers
-chrome valve covers and
-chrome rad cover....
-headlight chrome visor

....means my bike will look radically different this spring when she's all finished compared to when I bought her. I can't wait:cool::clapper:I'll post some before and after pics when it's all done.

The only things I would still like to get are the saddlebag rails and possibly the saddlebag lid chrome guard/racks and front fender rail..........maybe some more, we will see.

Hey, if I wait........who knows, more good things could come my way!:D
Oh I LOVE my job!........but it's keeping me broke too:baffled:

We got a bike for sale now as a project GL1100 that is that color. But I believe the fender is not good since there is some front end damage on it. I will check it out at work on Tues. However, if the bike doesn't sell, we may part it out. Right now as it is, I couldn't take the fender off anyway. I'll keep you in mind if something comes up:clapper::waving:

Well........after some debate/reflection..........(not too much really) . I have taken back my trunk and saddlebag rail lightbars and am exchanging them for gear for my recent purchase of a 1999 XR200R. I figured, I'd be better putting money into my GL to keep it in top running shape rather then decorating it. :cool:

I am very excited to get going on my XR this spring too and so some of the money goes towards off road gear and tuning up this new bike. OHHHH ....I'm so excited :dude::clapper::cooldj:

Fickle... :?
:?:?

the definition of fickle is: Quick to change one's opinion or allegiance; insincere; not loyal or reliable, or
  • marked by erratic changeableness in affections or attachments; "fickle friends"; "a flirt's volatile affections"
  • erratic: liable to sudden unpredictable change; "erratic behavior"; "fickle weather"; "mercurial twists of temperament"; "a quicksilver character, cool and willful at one moment, utterly fragile the next"
Now.......that is definitely not the case! :cool: My first love is Motorcycles of all types. My Goldwing holds a special place in my heart. I love Honda's especially and therefore my newest addition deserves attention etc too. Even though I said "not too much really", it was a comment reflecting my excitement over my XR200 purchase and really my decision not to install some of the accessories comes after much reflection while my bike has been in winter storage and since I first attained them 3 months ago. Not installing the accessories in NO WAY, reflects that I have lost my love for my Wing. I treat it the best it deserves. So that word "fickle" is not applicable here.:cool:
