Re: Opinions Please Asap!!!
I've had a '92 GL1500 Interstate for some time. Followed me home like a lost St Barnard one day and I'm just now getting round to possibly selling it for pragmatic reasons. But I've thoroughly enjoyed every mile I've ridden on it. There's something visceral about the feeling of rolling on the throttle of that big flat 6. It's very smooth, yet has a very appealing almost subliminal throbbing to it. Don't get me wrong..... I love my LT's handling and rideability, But that Honda motor has something about it.
As for the Valc, you get that "and" a totally in your face classy look. Oh yea.....and six carbs vs two. The touring Wings have one carb for each bank of three cylinders, while the Valc has one per cylinder. Don't expect to get great mileage, but then on a bike like that, who cares? Remember the Motorcycle Ownership Rationalization Equation, or MORE, as you consider the Valc:
C = N + 1 where C is the correct number of motorcycles to have and N is the number you now own
