  • Clinging?

    I'm not sure if the forum title is accurate. I love my 1500 and cannot afford anything else at the moment. So 'clinging' is not the word I would use. Maybe 'caressing' or 'enamored' may be suitable. Anyway, glad to be here. Looking forward to nice discussions on here.

    Welcome. I intended 'clinging' as a good thing!

      You can get great deals on low mileage 1500's every so often. Nice bikes. Sure beats $30,000 for a new 1800!

            Love my 1500 when I want a nice smooth take it easy ride, but also like my 1800 when I want to turn it up a notch. Don't think I could get rid of either bike.

              Not a thing wrong with the 1500, put many miles on them. They are a nice riding bike. Keep it maintained and it will go many, many miles for you! I miss several things about them. My wife really liked the ride and the room on ours. And there are lots of guys here that have racked up the miles on them, so you will have lots of help if need be!

                  I have owned a number of 1500s and 1800s. The 1500 is probably the best true touring bike there is. It is very comfortable on the road but a pretty good handful in the parking lot. The 1800 is still pretty comfortable but not in the same way as the 1500. The higher performance level make it appealing. But there was definitely a comfort price to pay for the increased performance. Had the 1500 motor been fuel injected, I would probably never have gone to the 1800.

                    After upgrading from the 1500 with 145K miles and 20 years old to the current 1800, I miss the 1500. I've owned 23 different motorcycles including GL1000, GL1100, & GL1200 in the last 50 years of riding and the '93 GL1500 is undoubtedly my favorite.

                      I got 2012 and I wish I had kept my 1500 as it fit me better. Don't get me wrong the 18 is great power, brake and handling wise, but the 15 just rode better and fit me better. I would buy a low mile 1500 if the opportunity presented itself. Maybe the last couple of years of production.

                        Nothing wrong with clinging or caressing a 1500. They are a fine ride!

                          Loved my 98 1500 but unfortunately a rear tire failure put us down at high speed and the bike did not survive the incident. We had a lot a great miles and memories on that bike Even got married on it.
