Whoop whoop !! … I’ve managed to purchase a new pre-registered 2017 GL1800 from Honda in Blackpool so my current sturdy steed is going up for sale.
I’ve added it to the various Facebook pages of Wing groups but thought I’d also add it on here for those that don’t do Social Media.
See pics – Its a July 2013 bike in Black / Silver with Sat Nav and Air Bag. Its current mileage is 18,783 – MOT is 9 July 2019 – last service was the major 16k and was completed by Ian Cardwell in August 2018. I’d describe its overall condition as excellent.
Its been maintained and improved since I purchased it as second owner in August 2016. Maintenance and most upgrades have been completed by Ian with recall work (Airbag and Rear Brake) completed by Wheels Honda here in Leicestershire.
It has a progressive spring upgrades to front and rear which makes a significant improvement to the overall handling and ride. It has the required side stand base plate thickening as the ride and static height are slightly increased.
Ian fitted a gear indicator under the right hand speaker grille – a great visual aid for such a flexible engine !!
It has tank (knee) protectors fitted along with lower air / water deflectors by the riders feet.
Its has a chromed and black top rack and a few tasteful chrome accents added to the side cases, top box, front top fairing, rear light, wing mirrors (with clear glass) and a fender extender in chrome and rubber on the front mudguard.
The bike came fitted with a set of Chrome and Black pillion armrests (rhs incorporates a swing out cup holder !) but as my good lady kept catching her feet on them as she got on / off, I removed the armrests but retained the mounting points. Arm rests are included in the sale and can be seen in one of the earlier photos.
The wheels have been silver powder coated but I’m going to switch with the new bike wheels so it will come with new wheels / tyres.
I added Tridium LED Fog Lights to the lower cowling – these also incorporate LED Indicators – Very cool and very bright 😎 but also a superb safety feature making the bike very visible to oncoming traffic.
For safety I added the required wiring to make all the rear light work as both running and brake lights – see picture
For security, the bike has a DATATAG transponder fitted and the registration is current with decals and discreet etching to various bodywork parts – The registration can be transferred to the new owner.
I added a lock to the front LHS cubby as I have used Bluetooth and had the transmitter in here.
The trunk also contains a 4 way power supply (cigarette lighter style) to power any further accessories you may have.
Sat Nav has current NT maps 2019.10 and the display is fitted with a Sun Visor.
Its on a Private Reg Plate at present that I will transfer to my new bike.
I’ve looked online and this model, age are in dealers for between £17 – £18k … i’m asking just £15,500
If you are interested, please get in touch – firstname.lastname@example.org – i’m in North West Leicestershire near Junction 22 of M1 . Members can get my phone number from the members only section.
Feel free to share the info so that a great bike finds a new home and I get some space back in my garage !!
