A windshield wiper? Is that standard equipment? Regards, Johnny

lol, no, but it should be. let me tell you something, this windshield wiper has saved my ass many times over. its already paid for itself from the first time i used it. i came in very handy when i was down in Florida and on my ride home getting caught in thunderstorms. you don't really appreciate it until you have one and use it. worth every penny of what i paid for it.

your very welcome, and if your interested in the windshield wiper, you can find them at.....http://www.roaddogwiper.com it wasn't cheap, but worth every penny if you ride year round like i do. other than new brakes and tires, it was the best safety investment ive ever made on ANY motorcycle ive ever owned. makes a hugh difference in being able to see or not being able seeing in the rain. on the down side, you have to make sure you have a perfectly clean windshield or else it will make streaks on it, but the streaks are on the upper part of the windshield and not in my "line of sight". if you use the Honda line windshield cleaner/polisher, it will remove the streaks and make the water repel off of it easier. below is a few pics of it and how good a job it does on my windshield. i even built and installed my own electrical motorized windshield washer 8-).

if you want to read more about this, you can read it here at..................and i quote wingadmin..... viewtopic.php?f=10&t=25440&p=141902&hilit=motorized+windshield+wiper#p141902 in fact a few months back, wingadmin did me the honor of making it one of the "feature stories of the month" in february of this year........Featured This Month on GoldwingDocs.com:
Motorcycle Windshield WiperA windshield wiper for your motorcycle?

Don't laugh! Windshield wipers are required to be standard equipment on Goldwings in Japan. But what about your bike with its tall windshield? How do you see through it during inclement weather? If you're Goldwingdocs user roadwanderer2, you install your own.

Sourced from Road Dog Wiper, he modified the assembly to fit it to his 1983 GL1100 Aspencade, and he couldn't be happier with the results.

But he didn't stop there. What is a windshield wiper without a windshield washer? He fabricated a washer out of a pump, fluid container and a sprayer, mounting it to his GL1100. First he tried mounting the sprayer to the wiper arm, but has now set it up to spray onto the windshield from below the wiper.

Check out his installation, and perhaps get some ideas for your own bike:
