Re: Looking for 1800 advice, tough year!

IMHO, 2006 up to 2010. All the initial "problems" were corrected by 2006 and major upgrades were available in 2006 and up. 2 items I got on my 2006 that turned out to be a total waste of money was the Nav system and the comfort system. Nav system is very difficult to program, until the year you coul...

Re: Headset engine noise?

I'd test a set of J&M head phones. Don't need to install them in a helmet just hold them upp to your ears. Or if you know someone with J&M, ask to try theirs.

Re: Steering head bearings

Of course, if I find something bad, I'll go ahead and just do it. To test, on a flat road in 5th gear at 50mph, let go of the bars and allow the Wing to decelerate. Check for pulls left and right, and for handlebar wobble. Any wobble ??? As a decel wobble happens on most Wings, what would your test...

A trike triple tree = an increased rake angle! While this is a good thing for reducing steering effort on a trike conversion. it is NOT a good thing for a 2 wheeler :shock:

Re: Is the Goldwing the best bike you have ever ridden?

The most comfortable for seating position and location of controls was my Harley Ultra Classic. Sadly, the heat and vibration negated the "comfort" of the bike. While the seating position on my 1800 Wing was just in the fair catagory the smoothness of the bike, coupled with no heat made it more desi...
