I think the GL1200 is a work of art
The computer controlled fuel injection is awesome. Out on the highway and you need to pass a truck; just roll on the throttle and the smooth power launches you to the century mark without a burp. I have a Yammy XS 1100 that can rock out, but not with the smoothness of this bike.
The handling is excellent once the bike starts to move. You would never think that a 750LB + bike could handle like this.
I had always wanted a GL1200. I like the looks of My 86 SEI with a smooth vanilla color and a bit darker accent and wineberry seats. After all these years the bike turns heads everywhere I go. I have 7 bikes, and I like this bike so much I am looking for another. I could just collect these from now on. Very dependable and great gas mileage.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
