In response to Whacker's query. I have a white 94 GL1500 SE that is just broken in with 88K on the clock. I had an 83 GL1100 two toned grey that I enjoyed. I was told by a mechanic not to ride a 1500 because I would buy it. He was right. I have killed deer with both Wings but did not go down. I enjoy riding when I can get away. Sometimes I have to just take off and go or I will be called on to do something. Wife refuses to ride but lets me go when I can get away. I will post pictures when I learn how.
