This 1990 is my 2nd GL1500SE (3rd if you count the 2000 Valkyrie). I recently bought this '90 after selling my 2009 Gl1800 Airbag edition. Why? Like lots of other wing riders, I realized I prefer the 1500. The engine is carbureted but immediately responsive with lots of grunt and smooth as silk. Regular maintenance isn't a chore, though I did change the timing belts due to the age of the machine. Room? All kinds, including storage for 2 helmets in the trunk. I owned a 2000SE for 6 years and sold it, buying the 1800. Nice bike, but a few years later I went back to a 1500 because as a tourer -- even your every day go to work ride, the 1500 can't be beat. Turn the key. Go. It's reliable and built to outlast most. and it does it with far more maneuverability than you'd think.
