Re: High-visibility gear

I just bought my first Hi Viz mesh coat from First Gear. I will be wearing it once I can get the bike out. We had snow flurries this morning.

Re: trip planner

I have an older Garmin Nuvi 750 and it does trip routing. Just got back from a 4 day, 6 state, 1985 mile trip to the Smokey Mountains and I was able to add 9 stops I wanted to make along they way on the first day. I had to enter each address manually as I could not get the computer to find the Garmin.

It was one of the worse cushions I have ever tried :x . I tried my buddy's sheep skin cover was very impressed on the comfort of it. P...

Re: Brake Issues

Well, flushed the brake system and it looked like maple syrup. Caliper no longer locking up. Just need to get "some" air out of the rear. Pedal is still a little soft.

Thanks for your help.

Brake Issues

I changed my tires and brake pads yesterday. I choose to go with the Honda pads. When I got everything back together the pads sounded like they were dragging. I took it around the block and the noise got even louder. Got back home, and raised front of bike and rotated the tire. It would only spin 1-...

Re: 100% Fluids Change?

Here is a link from the Gold Wing Facts Website you may want to consider. If it were me I would change all of them with the bike being now 7 years old. It also would give some piece of mind if I was the 2nd owner. http://ndnrdr.com/images/Goldwingfacts/ServiceMaintenanceSchedule.xls I would recomme...
