Death of a Honda dealer

Dean Schlitter, who ran the Honda Powersports dealership in Oelwein, Iowa, died last week. I bought my 2005 Goldwing trike from him and had some service work done there. Dean ran a dealership, NOT a stealership. He was a gentleman, and easy to deal with. He will be missed. No word yet on the fate of...

Re: Howe Kutter GoldWing-GL1000 fairing

They haven't been in business for MANY years. When the factories started putting fairings on bikes, the demand for third party fairings ended.
I would think that Ebay and Craigslist would be the best place to look.

Re: Howe Kutter GoldWing-GL1000 fairing

Howe fairings were made in a factory on Airline Highway in Cedar Falls Iowa. At the time, I lived about 4 miles from there. I always found it interesting that they also made two wheeled racing sulkies.

Sorry if this is a repeat, but remember... the reason ethanol is cheaper is because it is Government Subsidized.

Pretty simple really. Should just be the rider's choice. Same with seat belts in my opinion. I always wear a helmet but it doesn't bother me if anyone else does or doesn't.
As long as my taxes don't pay for their medical and long term care bills.

Re: Who Never Wears A Helmet

MANY years ago, in the bike shop where I bought my first bike, there was a sign by the helmets that said, "If you have a $10 head, buy a $10 helmet."

I think most riders, unless they have a good head bunt (like, say, Gary Busey) can revise that quote to a ZERO value helmet.
