Just back from God's country

Once a year me and a 4 other old fart do an annual Wild Hogs ride to the mountains. This year we rented a cabin on a golf course 3 miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway just north of Asheville outside of Burnsville, NC. The weather was perfect as some of us rode the twisties and some of us played golf. N...

Re: Parts anyone ???

I'll take a set of saddlebags. I'd prefer black but appreciatively take any color.

Thanks :)

This is the Venture -

Not for me tho. It's about the same price as a Goldwing so what's the point?

Wish I had your problem. I have to ride 300 miles to find twisties good enough to scrape pegs. :cry:

Re: Went to my local Honda dealership today

Yea, it was the low end model. Dunno where they got that price but I wouldn't even begin negotiations from there. But like I've always said. When I do move up to an 1800, I'll have a nice, long ride back cause nobody close to here is interested in selling bikes.

Went to my local Honda dealership today

I haven't been there in over 2 years and was promptly reminded why. They're thieves. They did not have the first new Goldwing on the showroom floor, but they had a used one. a 2008 with 11,000 miles on it. The price tag said - $22,990. Actually, they had about 3 times as many used bikes in the showr...

Now there's something that's rare as hens teeth. Most RN's won't go anywhere near a motorcycle. I know, I used to be married to one.

Wow, wish I had a local dealer like that. The one here would deny all wrongdoing and tell you it's your problem.

Re: 2011 Goldwing

Well, if the 2012 model is the same as the 2010 model, they better not raise the price. If they do, it will be a hard sell.

Ill fitting Tupperware

For some reason, the piece that bridges from the shelter to the dash (the piece with the key hole in it) will not seat properly. It wants to pop up at the ignition key end and it's driving me crazy. I've gone over it with a fine toothed comb and cannot, for the life of me, see what's causing this. I...

I have a 94 Interstate I've been trying to sell for awhile now. I'm down to 4k and still no takers. Seems nobody wants the lowly Interstate. :cry:

Re: Summer cruising!

Been too freaking hot and humid around here to ride much. Early morning and late evening are bearable but the rest of the day it's too hot to be fun. But I do have a ride to the mountains planned for the first week in August. hopefully it will be cooler there.

Re: Some Information - Dead Headlight

Yes sir. Been there, done that. :(

I also learned the Radio shack has the best contact cleaner for the job. I used some form Home Depot and it didn't last a week. Hit it and all the other switched with the RS stuff and it's been over a year and no more problems.

Re: ignition switch problem?

Pull out on the start button and see if it's sticking. Mine did once and the headlights didn't work. If it is, Radio Shack contact cleaner will fix it.
