Re: E3 to car tire, wow

The 195/50 I used was wider and about the same height...now have several hundred miles at all speeds and it is still impressive...hope to get 30k miles out of it as opposed to 8-10k out of MC tires.....running 40 psi BTW

1991 1500

My neighbor needs to sell his 91 Wing, (I used to own it) overall in good shape, 80K miles, it has been sitting so it needs the crabs cleaned, plugs and oil change, he just wants to move it, if interested I can put you in touch with him, unsure of price, make an offer?.....

E3 to car tire, wow

Finally installed a 195/50/16 on the rear....WOW....the bike is totally planted, smooth and quiet....soaks up the bumps and it took all of 5 minutes to adjust to the different feel, takes the corners just fine, if you are considering a new rear tire, go for it.....

Re: Please tell who or what made you buy a Goldwing

Had a 1500 then rambled around to a Yamaha Venture then a v-strom 1000 then a Harley Road King....always knew the 1800 was the best touring ride out there and finally traded the harley for an 05' 1800...WHY did I wait so long...like going from a 1966 F150 to 2016 Caddy.....

Re: motorcycle trip to Alaska in 2016

We did Florida to Alaska last summer, (not on bike), trip of a lifetime....the distances are huge, the people are warm and helpful, critters everywhere (no night riding)...did talk to several bikers along the way...most but not all were having fun..days of rain will do that...construction delays/rou...
