Good Idea, but not for me. :(
I have to think backwards. If my wife read the list and understand that they are items for goldie, I wil never get them.
I have to send subliminal messages :D may be it will work.

even if I'm coming from Italy I hate Moto Guzzi
Since I was a child I did not like them : bad quality, bad riding feeling, bad sound too expensive for What they give .
Now after a bad period Moto Guzzi is back again, but for me it remains a not good motorcycle.
But , you know, I don't like ferrari :D either so, may be it is me not the brand :roll:

Ok beave, I'll play: I would like a rake kit for my '86 GL1200 trike. BUT I guess no one makes a kit for the 1200. BAH!! (that's my inner-Scrooge speaking)
AND,...if I were able to get another bike I'd really like a mid-to late 90's 1500 white Roadsmith trike. Come on Santa, you heard me!!!

and level indicators for the trailer


Go to a caravan shop (caravan = small mobile home on wheels that you pull behind a car or truck), they have level indicators that are about 50mm (about 2 inches) in diameter. It has a bubble inside a clear glass/plastic container of liquid, like a spirit level. This may answer that Christmas desire, and may fit your budget as well.

My wish list is simple; just copy Roadrogue's list except the trailer items, but include page 2. Simple. P.S. thanx RR for saving me the trouble, you are right on the mark.

There's not much I haven't changed on the Wing lately but:

Air horns would be nice
Screen with vent and wiper
An RX4 sidecar WITH BRAKE
Fully insulated workshop big enough to keep the above and my other bikes in plus room for bench, lathe, etc in (I could do with a new pillar drill while we're at it) Oh and don't forget the fridge (with beer), tv with cd player, nice comfy chairs for when friends call................

While we're in dreamland how about
A nice Spring and Summer where the Sun shines all day and it only rains between midnight and five in the morning.
All motorists have blasted eyes open.
Petrol doesn't cost more than £1 a litre.

Bikes.
To keep the trouble and strife happy a new GW 1800 (it's the heated seat that sold it to her) with RX4 attached.
For me a 1936 BSA Y13 OHV Vtwin, a really nice looking bike.

1200 trees. Isn't there a company that will re-rake your exist trees for you?

Merry Christmas and safe riding in 2013

I like the garage idea.....can Santa put mine next to the coast line, elevated in case of floods, so put on a hill somewhere, beautiful views....lol.

Here in the NW, I found a house I would really like if I could afford....it has a 38x72 garage, Ooooooo, that would be nice.

I’d rather be Riding my Motorcycle thinking about God
Than sitting in church thinking about my Motorcycle

Yea, don't get me wrong, I love the GW, it is smooth, has good control, low center weight, I just can not stretch out on it. I am not a "Harley" guy, and all the research I did on Victory....they really thought it through, and did something totally different. They are not going the traditional route. Same as I like the Vulcan 1700 Touring rig they have. There is something about a vtwin that feels good, sounds good.

So, yes, property on the coast, more motorcycles, lol. That would be a good year.
