Re: End of an era: Haynes/Chilton

Awww, my dad loved Chilton's. He had one for a couple different cars. I had one for my 1979 Fiat Spyder 2000.

Re: GPS Voice Commands

If that doesn't fix it the issue might still be in the settings for the Sena. I've tried different things on mine with priorities and things and occasionally turned off something unintentionally.

Re: Innovv K2 Dual Camera System Review

After perusing several of the FAQ pages on Innovv's site and their installation instructions, I think I'll be okay with the 256GB cards if I reformat them inside the DVR. Anyway, the installation is postponed for a couple weeks until I can get that VHB tape delivered. Hopefully, that will only be a ...

Re: New changes for 2021 GL1800 - finally!

Getting two full face helmets into the trunk may still depend on which helmets you have. I could get my large and my wife's medium HJC-MaxII modular helmets into the trunk of my 2016, but cannot get both of our Shoei Neotec-II helmets in. I could probably get two mediums in since the shell on the me...

Re: Fifth Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering: August 25 - 29, 2021

I'm up for Arkansas. Anybody been here: Harrison is a bit north of the areas I’ve ridden. I’ve done quite a bit of the Ouchita and some of the Ozark NFS. I’m up for any of the Appalachia area since the furthest east we’ve done so far was our recent Natchez trip. I also didn’t intend to start any ea...

Re: Fifth Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering: August 25 - 29, 2021

The first one was up in Ohio, but that still isn't too far from this region. I have no complaints since I'm in the middle, near Dallas, but has there been any discussions a...

Re: Innovv K2 Dual Camera System Review

Any card larger than 32GB is exFAT. The DVR will format all large cards to FAT32. Card needs to be FAT32 for the firmware update to work. You're in a bit of a catch 22 situation. You'll need to use s 32GB card to perform the update since the card will only come FAT32 by default. Updating the firmwa...

For what its worth and its just my opinion based on my crash experience while towing a small camper, anyone looking to tow a trailer with a motorcycle might want to at least check out a swivel hitch.
If and when we do, I've already planned on doing that.

I am still looking into the K2 camera system and the MadStad shield. My wife said she almost considered getting that for me for Christmas this year, bu...

Re: Christmas Gift Motorcycle Washing Soap

Dish soap is not a good vehicle wash soap. It is to harsh. It will remove any wax on the paint and leave it unprotected. If you use a dish soap, you need to apply wax right afterwards to keep the paint protected. Car detailers use it a lot because it makes claying the car easier, and they will be a...

Re: Christmas Gift Motorcycle Washing Soap

I washed my Wing for the first time after a recent trip where I ended up off road for 20+ miles. I had no idea how dirty it had gotten until the next day in the light. WOW I broke down and bought me a really soft car washing brush, put some Dawn dish soap in a bucket with some water, and proceeded ...

Re: 3 amp or 4 amp battery tender

I don't know if it is too big or not, but rather the intelligence of the tender itself seems to be the critical factor. The Battery Tender Jr., recommended by WingAdmin ranges from 0.75-2-1.25 amps.

Re: Did you name your bike?

I've toyed with the idea of naming it. Even thought about getting a vanity plate. I would've gone with something like "Connie" after the carrier I was on because of it's size and how much space it takes to turn around. Then I got better at turning around and it didn't seem to fit. Now, the Navy ha a...

Re: OEM Battery Life?

Okay, I'm liking the idea of this battery tender jr. thing. I'm also liking it for my cages, but with a few options for different outputs, (0.75, 0.8, and 1.25 amps) I'm wondering which would be better/easier on the batteries. I would think the 0.75 amp would be best and safest for long term, no?

Re: Leg options for keeping warm in cold weather?

I'll pile on to the rain pants solution. They are far easier to get on and off than chaps and much easier on the wallet. They don't look as cool, but let's be honest here, do chaps really look cool when riding a Goldwing? Or do they say, "I used to ride a Harley, but finally wised up and bought a Go...
