Thanks for adding me. I just picked up a '78 GL1000, it's been parked for 15 years. It only has 90,000kms (55,000miles) but needs a lot of maintenance and TLC. Looking forward to going through everything on the bike. I sold my almost identical bike 22 years ago and have had many bikes since but none were as enjoyable as that one.

Welcome from Vancouver Island. Great bikes these GWs. Was at the Toronto International bike show and a fellow at one of the booths thinks these older GWs will be around long after the newer crop is gone. Have fun.

Welcome!

'78's are the best looking. And most trouble-free. And most desirable. And the only year capable of time travel.

Thanks for the welcome,
No pics yet I left it in the trailer until it warms up a little. It was an hour digging out of the guys shed yesterday when I picked it up. -25 c yesterday and today. I’ll post some pics once I get it in the heated garage.

And the only year capable of time travel.


The flux capacitor on mine must be broke because the Time's Arrow on my 78 only points to the present. I want to go back and educate a 20-something young guy about the poor choices he made. Think he would listen to an old fart? Probably not, since I never did.

I seem to travel in one direction only and just get older. Do you have a schematic showing where on the 78s the capacitor is located?

Welcome!

'78's are the best looking. And most trouble-free. And most desirable. And the only year capable of time travel.


I won't admit to any time travel, but I am curious about the reliability factor. Is there consensus that '78's are any more reliable than some other years near that vintage?
