Re: To heavy for me Goldwing

I had a 2 wheel Goldwing and it got too much for me after hernia surgery. So I purchased a trike. Took some adjustment but wouldn't trade it for nothing!

Re: Darkside Tech: Using Car Tires on a Motorcycle Rim

Re: GWRRA Members ???

Not interested in the magazine or Wing Ding, then join for the comaraderie and fun events each chapter has. I joined because I ride a Goldwing and wanted to be a part of a group of like minded riders.

Re: Riding next to tractor trailers

I was about 1/4 mile behind it and heard and saw one of the rear tires explode. Black smoke went up and pieces of tire went all over the road. Had I been anywhere near I probably ...

Re: Rear Shocks.

They can be rebuilt if you have the time. It's cheaper than buying new. I didn't have $800!

Re: Rebuilding your seat

My seat has a small tear in the stitching, so I used black Gorilla brand tape to keep it from tearing further and now use a gel pad to hide "the fix". Lots cheaper and more comfortable. Took about 5 minutes. A repair would cost $250.00 just to fix just the part that's torn! The website has a lot of ...

Re: How to lubricate the splines in your rear drive

I must say the article and pictures made the job easier. Started out just changing brake pads but decided to check drive shaft and final drive splines while I had most everything off anyway.

Re: How to remove and replace your rear shocks

I rebuilt the stock ones that came on my GL1100I, since I didn't have $800.00 handy for aftermarket shocks. Cost me $35.00 and lot of time.
