Re: Honda disgraced themselves with the 2018 Goldwing

See, I hate all the tech on new bikes. It seems that us young folk are trying to get away from that ****. I don’t make calls on my motorcycle—that makes us no better than cagers. I tour to get away from people, my work and the like. I don’t use GPS either, but it sure is nice to have and, frankly, a...

Re: Honda disgraced themselves with the 2018 Goldwing

I want to thank you for bringing all of these problems to our attention. Maybe it will save others a lot of money and frustration. For me, it was bad enough when Honda put a Garmin GPS on the 2008 GL1800 that required updates at $95.00 a pop. But to create a system that only works with Apple produc...

Re: Average age ?

I think I voted, but didn’t respond. Just turned 30, been on wings since I was 24, got my motorcycle license at 15. I have the same problem about age as other people do. Luckily I’m an old soul so I can usually fit in with any groups I’m in. I also can do 1000+ miles in about 14 hours if I need to, ...

With many of you admitting your oem radio cover is in storage for many years, would any of you wish to sell me one to complete my 1991 SE? My plastics are brown. Regards
eBay has some, the OE kind not the clear plastic kind. I’ve discovered backups to forum and chapter members.

Re: 2018 GOLDWING SPECIFICATIONS

Such a disappointment. The lack of storage space kills this thing for me. The new Yamaha Venture and even the Harley Road Glide Ultra boast more storage space. I'm genuinely not sure who will buy it. I certainly hope their plan wasn't to try to capture the younger generation. I'm 25 and if I wanted...

I think this can easily be done but the best idea would be to actually by a seat heater kit. You can get them for a motorcycle here:

This link apparently is no more and is not private. I wouldn’t use it.

Re: Darkside Tech: Using Car Tires on a Motorcycle Rim

I tried the Austone, it was on one of the last in the country....according to the friend who gave it to me.

Yeah. I was actually going to go with my Bridgestone Excedra in the front and bring the A/T with me. The rear is such a pain in the ass to do.

Re: Darkside Tech: Using Car Tires on a Motorcycle Rim

After doing a LOT of soul searching, I think that for my big Alaska trip next year I’m running a RFT on the rear (I can only find a Goodyear in the size I need), and a tubed A/T on the front. The front rim I’ll be changing when I get to the Dalton Highway, but the RFT I’ll run the whole way. I am do...

Re: Average age ?

In the summer of 1982, I was 9 and went with my uncle to a Honda dealer where he was picking up his motorcycle, I don't even remember what bike he had; I do vividly remember seeing that year's GL1100 Goldwing. It was glorious! Big and powerful looking with removable suitcases (I was 9, remember). I...

Re: SocalMotoGear Pathfinder LED Headlights

I wonder if the lumen rating is skewed then. I always respect your opinion, then. The Wing will get the SoCalMotoGear H4, and my car will get the 9005 from SuperBrightLEDs, from whom I've never had a problem. Thank you!

I'm going to upgrade the 9005 bulbs in my Acura, but I'm not sure if I should get some from Opt7 (3500 lumens with a fan), or the passively cooled ones from SuperBrigh...

Where did you find that? It has too many names, I knew what you meant. The low-rolling resistance Goodyear.

What tire size is your Austone? And the Goodyear Assurance is 195mm wide, correct? I gave up on CT, I think I had the last 175/75R16 tire in history. The Bridgestone Excedra is the OE tire for the Honda Goldwing and works fine...but I don't think a 195 will got and my only other option was a 185/55R...

Doesn't the 1800 come with radials now? I'm almost positive the new ones do.
