Default 2008 Gl1800

Hi guys,
Glad to be back again.
You have helped me out tremendously in the past; I hope you can do it again.
I have a 2008 GL1800 and can't find anywhere in the manual about how to adjust the mirrors. I am kind of tall and need the mirrors to go up and out a bit.
Thanks.

Usually you place your hand on the mirror and twist it manually.

They don't adjust up or out. You can move the mirror that is in the enclosures by pusing on an edge with your finger, and that will change the angle of your view, but that is it for adjustments.

Thanks guys. That's seems kind of sucky for a goldwing, don't you think?

Are you trying to see "behind" you, or where you're supposed to see - the Blind Spot(s)?

What the heck, just go to JCWhitney.com and order yourself some Jeepney mirrors.

Hang two or three on each side of the windshield, put a row or two of dingleberries on the dash and console, and you're there!

Hey Joe!

Long time/short time, no shi*! Here, you like my mudder! She's a Virgin!


Me, I don' know no 'Longapo; I a round-eye from Balibago/Angeles City!




I've got a classmate from back when we were in high school there. He is half-Filipino and, Bless his heart, he has a 'wing that is so done up, it looks for all the world like a two-wheeled 'Jipney'.
