Re: Riding in hot weather

Long Distance Riding in Hot Weather This was very interesting reading! It also tells me that I'm probably not as bad off as I thought I might be and may not be able to do much better with a different style suit with less mesh. From the reading it indicates that when the temps are above 93F the idea...

Re: Riding in hot weather

She's not excited about getting a proper riding suit and due to her height and shape might be a little difficult anyway. However, what do ya'll think about the mesh/no mesh ratio for pant and jacket? Over 95-ish it's better to have no mesh, just vents, to limit dehydration, IMHO. The science behind...

Re: Riding in hot weather

I took a recent ~1300 mile round trip in 95-98F sunny weather. Tail wind going and head wind coming back. Man, that was a beating on the way home. Took me an extra hour due to a couple more stops. I wore my mesh suit the entire time coming and going. The one day at my destination riding around I jus...

Re: Average age ?

I’m up a bracket to 55 last month. I suspect the poll cannot be modified to allow a change of answer without starting all over. Maybe WingAdmin can. IDK I just did exactly that - feel free to change your age now if you happened to have aged in the seven years since it was first posted. :) Excellent...

Re: Honda GPS

The problem I’ve had with this is the way the onboard system works versus the route we’ve planned. The onboard system has two choices for getting to a destination or waypoint. The shortest or the quickest. Neither of those might be what I had thought I planned in the trip planner route. To overcome ...

Regarding the jerky transmission issue, if you weren’t informed by your dealer, it will take some time to learn your riding habits. I don’t know how much time or miles/kms.

My Wing is so smooth ...

I maintain that although the 1500 is a very capable machine it is as FAR from a sport bike as you can get! :lol:

Re: high mileage vs age

So, the 1800 is fully broken in! After just mentioning my lack of knowledge of Goldwings other than my own in another thread, I would only vote for the 1800 because of fuel injection versus carburetors. I've heard/read that the 1500 is more comfortable, but unless you're taller than 6' I don't know ...
