Looks like it's time for a bump. Few ppl said they couldn't find this thread so BTT.
Been a long time... Hope everyone is doing well.
Hello, and thank you very much for this thread. I only found it this morning, but it has been riveting. I have read the first 10 pages, and watched the linked youtube videos. I plan to begin practicing the 3rd gear, 10 turns in each direction ASAP. I have a large parking lot nearby, but it is no where near level. So must think of a place more suitable.Hey folks.... we are way overdue for a bump. Lotta new riders on the site.
I hope you find this info helpful but...
PLEASE NOTE: the 2018+ wings have a different gear ratio and the 3rd gear technique DOES NOT WORK. You will stall the machine.
Please keep to 2nd gear.
Too bad. I went last year just because it was local and Pistol Pete invited me to show my GL1000 in his booth. It was a lot of fun and a good setup with parking next door in the old convention center. Don't see this happening in Nashville if they are still afraid to have Top Gun. Watched a motor officer competition in Charleston SC a few years ago that was very good. Practice day saw a lot of chrome on asphalt!negative... struggling to justify going now.
