Unfortunately these pictures do not do this bike justice. This GL 1800 motorcycle is beyond gorgeous. This custom paint job was done with absolute attention to every detail. I am not the original owner but when I did some research a couple years back when I bought this with only 7K miles on it I found a Weasel of Carolina who was doing one of a kind paint jobs for all types of vehicles. He offered different levels of work based on price and if you had the money he provided show quality work. I am no expert but looking at this custom paint work (which was done for Denny as shown on the opposite foot rest) with the crazy attention of detail and the impeccable quality, I believe this his top shelf work. The lite metal flake paint is uniform and gorgeous and the hand done pin striping is unbelievable.

This bike only has 17K miles on the clock. My wife and I put ten of those on in the last two years, weekend getaways and some long multi week rides. We just got back from a 3424 mile two week long fabulous getaway up across Canada and I'm only interested in selling as we are now ready to try some other different types of adventures. Truth is though we're already thinking of more getaways so miles may go up soon.

Recent service is fresh oil and filter change 4K ago, the rear end gear oil was changed at the same time. We put fresh tires on before this last trip so they only have 3.5K on them. This is easily a fly in and ride anywhere machine.

This machine is loaded with some expensive extras. I installed the front Mick-O-Pegs highway pegs, the rears I put on for her are Kurakyn, her armrests are genuine OEM Honda, these were not cheap, she loves them. With the add on of the arm rests and her personal highway pegs she loves her "queen" seat. The windshield is MadStad and is amazing, no looking through plastic! I have the original windshield and custom painted vent for it and a box for it if it needs to be shipped. Other notable extras are the lower driving lights and copious amounts of chrome add ons. Of course it has heated seats front and back, heated grips, a booming sound system, cruise control etc.

I installed, both hard wired, a standard 12V outlet and a 1/4" Aux plug in the left compartment. Next to the Ram mount is a Garmin GPS plug. This does have a nice hidden trailer hitch and the Pakit Rak (these things are awesome) and is included as is the Alaska Leather sheepskin.

I upgraded the front forks with stiffer Traxxion Dynamics springs and thicker fork oil. I added a modification kit to delay the anti-dive system. I also bled the rear shock hydraulic lift system. These three mods are necessary for all GL1800 machines, if you are shopping for a GL1800 specifically and these mods are not completed you likely will be doing them yourself. I'm not making this up do some research.

OK one more thing. I have with this also, it looks like a barely used, beautiful custom painted trailer with matching pinstripe and alloy wheels to give away with this. I say give away because I have no paperwork with this trailer. While the bike has a normal clear, no surprises Co. title, the trailer has nothing, no title, no bill of sale nothing. No paperwork will be provided with the trailer, it matches the bike, if you want it take it. I towed this trailer received from the dealer with the bike for two hours to my home but I can't recommend doing that as it has the original tires on it from way back and they are showing significant dry rot. The bike has wiring for the trailer lights and for the right buyer I could prep the trailer for extended travel with new tires etc.

Payment:
I will only accept two forms of payment, cash at time of pickup or direct wire transfer into my bank account and also at time of pickup would be fine, Title transfer and possession of the bike can be completed at the bank. No checks of any kind will be considered.

If your looking for a premium GL1800 and are considering a fly in ride, this is ready to roll anywhere!

Thanks to all the Craigslist scammers if your interested in this please contact me with some relevant information, phone number etc. Thanks, Mike
