GL 1200 long term owners
Interesting to see how many long time owners have had to do so little to their bikes. I mean, for bikes that are 25 years old, it seems that mostly maintenance items have been done. The ones that needed more, were from sitting a while. Maybe these bikes really will outlive many of us!

If you change the oil, coolant and brake fluid as recommended and follow recommended maintenance precedures and keep these GL1200's in a garage when not riding you will have a reliable bike for a lifetime. And the nicest part of all is that these bikes are truly a pleasure to ride. The bonus is that parts, if needed, are readily available new and used.
