Just saying hi. I just picked up an 84 GL1200. Needs some paint and crome polishing, but the bike runs excellent. I have been out of the loop for 10yrs. Im now 33 and single again, and itching to ride. I have grown out of the GO FAST phase, now I just want do some cross country riding. I have been driving trucks for the past10 yrs, and have always wanted to exlpore all the "Nooks and Crannies" I could not get a 70 ft long vehicle into. LOL.. By time the riding season gets here, I hope the bike will be fully restored. :)

Thx for the welcome. This GL is a whole new world for me. I may have some Q&A's from time to time.I have already found a wealth of info by searching this site.Once I pick the bike up, I plan on getting the Climer manual and getting my hands dirty.



:weightlifter:

Things needed fo road worthiness:

Rebuild front shocks (Leaking)

New Tires (Front Doesn't Match The Back)

Misc plastic welding (Rear Trunk Mounts Cracking)

Complete fluid change ( Bike Has Been Sitting For 8 Months)



As soon as I get the bike home Im sure I will find more things to fix. I still have about 3 months till the riding season gets here, so I wanna take my time and do thing the right way.... Again thx for the welcome!! Garrett




BTW: This has to be the most informative site I have found on the GL..

Welcome to the forum from Florida. :waving:

Be sure to put the timing belts on your to do list. With the instructions you can find here, it's a piece of cake. I did mine and had no problems.

It's a necessary thing with the age of these 1200's and if they fail, they take out pistons and other necessary parts. :baffled:

I got mine from Discount Auto for less than 1/2 price of the Honda dealer.

Welcome from Arkansas! Home of the World's Largest Triple-Wide.

I'm also a truck driver so know what you mean about nooks, crannies & 70 ft long vehicles. There is a link on this site to download the Honda Service & Parts manuals. Great for reference. I got my timing belts at NAPA for I believe $15 a piece.
