I gave my niece my 1200 wing but a friend of ours has a 1200 wi...

Re: What's Happening Today?

It will probably take a little while for the strength to come back - hopefully it will not be too long. Which foot did you break? it wasn't a matter of strength it was the vibration coming from each bike. broke my right foot today was my first day back at work, it didn't take much walking to get my...

Re: need gps suggestions

both of my 660's were refurb units that I've never had a problem with. at last years Goldwing doc's gathering the 660 on the Mighty ST1300 didn't lock in the mount ( my fault ), it decided to dismount while making a left turn on to the main road. I heard it hit the ground and slide across a couple t...

Re: Need motorcycle, trying to find financing or other option

Re: need gps suggestions

if you don't mind an older GPS look on ebay for a zumo 550 ( i'm looking for one of these ) or 450. if you need to update the maps you can pay garmin for the update and I've seen a few 550's for right around $200 with the M/C harness. if you find a 660lm or 665lm even better just make sure you get a...
