Hi there Kodiaksmoke,
Welcome to the wonderful world of Goldwings. I am unable to assist you in sliming, (or slimming ;) ),but I am sure someone else will be able to assist. Enjoy your GW.

Welcome to Goldwing world...GWW?
I have a gl1100 standard with Vetter bags and (maybe markland) bars. I had the bags and bars off, and could roll it in a old building I have (36" wide door).
I put the bags and bars on, and then it's 40" wide....oh well.
It's not a easy on-easy off setup on my bike. A "get skinny" button on the bike sure would be nice, and for that matter, one on me as well (I can still fit in the door though :lol: ).
My exercise bike is a goldwing.

Short answer NO! NO easy way..you loose headlight, turn signals, mirrors and no simple way to attack temp replacements.
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,
RB
