Tell me, what training wheel kit are you considering? I have an 87 Aspencade that I am considering doing that modification on. If it doesn't sell, I need to make it drivable for my wife.

The DIY article on this board, couple of 12V 4" stroke actuators, some angle iron and iron pipe 2 6 inch wheels and there you have it. You can get the actuators with mounting hardware and a REMOTE to pu on your key chain for about 120 bucks US - check out ebay.

That 83 came with a journey kit installed. I do plan to remove it. Probably should keep it for later....??????

practice practice practice . loosing your footing while parking!!! i have seen this happen a few times while the rider is pushing the bike backwards , but never a goldwing , once a couple young bucks laughed at the older gentlemen ! After we went over and helped him pick it up i told them all if thats the worst thing that happens i will kick mine over on its side everytime i get on it . KEEP THE SHINY SIDE UP!!!!
