Glad you're happy with them. My GL1500 has Elite 3s on it; I don't like 'em any better in the rain than the PO did. Makes the 'Wing feel light, like it's fixing to come out from under me. If they weren't damn near brand new, I'd switch to Metzlers or Avons.
GL1800 owners love the Elite 3.
My brother put an E3 on the rear of his '07 1600 Nomad; he doesn't like it in the rain, either.
I replaced the D404 on the rear of my VN750 with a Metzler 170/80-15, in prep for the Texas HCR a couple weeks ago. BIG difference; doesn't track the expansion joints like the Dunlop did, and solid as a rock in wet weather. The bike is a lot more stable in the twisties, too.
BTW, being up there in Frost, check out Texas VROC: www.texasvroc.org

Matter of fact, we're probably due for a MIM (Meet In the Middle; usually lunch or dinner at someone's favorite food hangout) up that way before long; somebody will be posting one, I'm sure. There's maybe a half dozen 750 owners on there that show up now and then.
