I drive a '99 GL1500 Aspencade with a Hanigan side car. The morning after
the last 3 or 4 rides there is a 4" puddle of antifreeze directly under the right side exhaust tip.

Is this a blown head gasket on the right side ????

If it's coming out of the exhaust it can't get there from anywhere except the cylinders, so headgasket would be a good bet. Is it smoking a sweet smelling white smoke and loosing coolant? Or is someone playing a prank on you?

Could be a head gasket, or if you've overheated the motor at some point, it could be a warped head also.

Thanks for the reply, Dave;

I checked the coolant level a couple of times and it doesn't seem to be
going down. It's still at the top of the neck.
I don't smell antifreeze in the exhaust either.
The bike is parked in my garage and I live about 40 miles from the nearest
Chapter members.

It just started doing this about 2 weeks ago.
I don't feel any loss of power or any difference in the bike at all.
