Installing accessories on the handlebars

I've got a 2003 - my father got himself a new 2021. So I have now transitioned away from CB and using a bluetooth helmet so we can communicate, as he didn't want to pay for the CB again. As part of this, I've gotten myself a lovely phone mount for the handlebars so I can see and do a few things like...

Newer Wings, Bluetooth, CB Radio, Helmets

I'm a 39 year old guy, riding a 2003 Wing. It belonged to my father. He's (turning 70 next month) riding a 2008 or 2009. We have usually ridden together, but I also started a family in the last few years, so for instance, this year we only got to ride together 2 times the whole season. We're in KY, ...

Re: Off-roading a Goldwing.....

Grandparents used to own some land down some gravel roads - it's where i learned to drive a car, how to back up with a trailer, how to operate a clutch, do all manner of repairs w/ Grandpa - I like to check on the property to see how its held up since the family sold it a number of years ago. I've a...

Re: A comparison between the 2018 and 2001 GoldWing

Guys - I've read reviews and watched countless youtube videos, and yet I can't quite seem to get the answer to this question. Bombing down the interstate for an hour, how's the ride of the new 2018-2020 versus the previous 1800. My Dad and I ride GW's together - I bought his 2003, while he got himse...

Re: GPS Intercom === Smartphone Intercom??

See, I regularly use my CB radio to talk with my riding buddies, so I'm not sure how a Bluetooth helmet factors into all this. But I am looking to replace my helmet soon, so if there's a new option I didn't know about, I'm interested. But I do rarely, but sometimes have a passenger, and I like both ...

GPS Intercom === Smartphone Intercom??

Has anyone ever thought about trying to integrate their smartphone into the intercom, so that you could access your phone's smart assistant (Google Assistant for Android, or Siri for Apple)? I thought I'd heard that the newest (2018+) GL1800 has this capability, but I have no way of triggering the r...

Re: Power Outlet 2001 1800 GL

So, I goofed and plugged an air compressor into this outlet in my left fairing pocket, and popped the fuse again. When it happened to me before, I just so happened that it was going into the shop for other things, so i just had the shop take care of this for me. Can anyone reference for me what spec...

Re: best tire that has long life and best ride

I'm riding on Elite III's (2003) - they handle wonderfully (and don't let me down if I encounter wet, but I usually try to avoid that), but the road noise is pretty loud. Naturally my solution is to use earplugs and turn the volume up on the stereo. I'm usually running only 38-39 PSI. I'm reconsider...
