What's with the two-tone red & blue lights? Are you a Medic or something? The bike looks in great condition.. Welcome to the club.

Thanks Gary, it is an old style strobo which had been there when I bought it. Yes it is rather old fashioned, but if I take it off, then my GW has no accessories on it :) Considering to put some new accessories, had to collect the money first.
Anyway, thank you for your comment, really appreciate it.

You will need to show a picture of the speedo display. Goldwings were available in either Kilometers or Miles depending if they where destined for the USA or Canada. If its a USA model then it will be in miles, but you could have a canadian model.. Post a few pictures and someone should be able to tell you what you have. If the distance is in kilometers then the speedo will be in KPH. When you drive on the freeway, does it indicate 60mph or 100kph? I am assuming you would know if you where doing 100mph!!

@Gary: Thank you very much! I'll check it on the next riding.
Haven't took the speedo display picture yet. But I got the point!

Your speedo display will tell you at the bottom whether the main readout is in km/ph or m/ph. If it goes up to 220 it is kph. Actually they display both one in large numbers and the other in small numbers.

do you mean to sleep inside the tent? Or is it just in case to cover your trailer in rainy weather?
