Re: 80 lb dog on the passenger seat??

A quick update on us... I finally figured out a harness for my pup Deuce. So far, so good, We're pushing 1500 miles so far but no trip over 40-50 miles. Its pretty simple and I tuck it in behind The lower backrest pad when it's just me or I have a passenger. Feel free to hit me up if you're wanting ...

Re: Average age ?

I'm 48 now and on my 5th Wing. I was 16 when I caught the Goldwing bug takin...uhh, borrowing my Dads 82' 1100 Interstate. I loved that bike and at 17 had saved up enough money to by a 83' Interstate. I ride all year long and put on a fair amount of miles, 20K-25K a year... I like to be comfortable!...

Re: 80 lb dog on the passenger seat??

I appreciate the answers but I'm not financially ready or wanting a sidecar. My daughter is in her last year of college so it's just me and my brute and I feel bad putting him in his kennel whenever I go somewhere being I only have the bike for transportation.
