Re: cell phone

You still have the usb connection in the truck, right? It’s duplication, but I put the same music on my phone on a thumb drive and plug in back there and use the aux button to listen and control it. Then, I believe you would still have your Bluetooth connection between your phone and helmet to make ...

Re: Fuel Mileage

There's also the issue of horsepower related to air temperature and humidity. Since colder air is more dense there is also more molecules, which means more energy released. The drier the better since we all know moisture in the form of water isn't good for combustion. So, there's bound to be some be...

Re: Texas Hill Country & Neotec-2/Freewire review

I forgot to mention about my first part to break on my Wing. After unloading my things once we arrived I was unable to close the left saddlebag so that it would not keep saying it was open on the screen. I found the forward latch on the left saddlebag hanging down about 3-4 inches and appeared to be...

Texas Hill Country & Neotec-2/Freewire review

Mrs. Dub and I recently completed our second trip on our Wing. I think I told ya’ll about our first trip over to Hot Springs, Arkansas, this past Spring and rode around the Ouchita National Forrest. It was about a 325 mile ride to get there and then we did about 250 miles the next day just sightseei...

Re: Innovv K2 Dual Camera System Review

That is a great review. I was seriously considering getting the C5 at some point, but will now be looking at the K2.

Side question: Has anyone ever actually ridden a wheelie on a 1500 or 1800?

Re: Please tell who or what made you buy a Goldwing

I also ride a Turbo Hayabusa, with about the same horsepower as it weighs! I've racked up nearly 100K Miles on it, and absolutely love it, other then riding a 100mph is like walking speed, so it's hard to ride it normal! Fun as can be though! I had a 2005 limited, not turbo, and even without a turb...

I don't know about the older Wings, but even my 2016 does this if I don't wait until it is warmed up enough. Are you waiting until it is up to temp?

Re: Best GPS Options

I’ve had my Wing for a little over a year now and am still using the Honda trip planner site. Since mine is fairly new they seem to ha e resolved many of the issues I’ve read about here.

This way I don’t have any more extra devices bolted on. So far, I’m happy with what came with it.

What is the range of Bluetooth headsets by the way? Can they communicate up to a 1/4 mile?
Bluetooth systems for motorcycle helmets have a much greater range than ear buds and the like. Many of them have ranges up to 1 mile and a little over depending on the terrain.

It feels good when I try it on, but so did the HJC in the store before putting thousands of miles on with it. I guess now I know it is more oval and will...
