Path to hybrid goldwing confirmed with release of electric cub scooter

http://www.visordown.com/motorcycle-news-new-bikes/honda-confirms-electric-cub-next-year Looks like there's a path to the electric/gas hybrid for the wing, and the electric cub is full circle to the gas cub of the sixties as a means of getting there. Like it or not things are changing, gas is a fini...

Re: Helmet mounted brake light

Yes I saw the link you posted. Products were too large for my taste, and I like the french unit as it doesn't require adhesive to mount to the helmet. I want something that is functional, has tech, and is bright during daylight and doesn't require tape or adhesive to mount. Wireless function as well...

Re: Helmet mounted brake light

looks good, there was a product from helstar that was out there a few years ago, but sadly it seems to have never been produced for market:

I'd go with the french solution, but I'd want the turn signal functionality to go with the brake light.

Re: REVPACK Tourpack

Need to repurchase my excursion bag, last had it in the 1990's, misplaced and never found. They wear like iron as you said, and that waterproof cover is invaluable to keeping things dry. The excursion bag fit perfectly over the back seat with the dog legs hanging down right on top of the side bags p...

1983 GL1100 Turbo Modded bike/Youtube link

For fun, this is just what a heavily modded wing can do. Would be nice if it could be a neater more OEM kind of thing, but hey it's a modded bike.

Enjoy!

Re: Fall update

Can we have a youtube link to what the bike sounds like, would be nice to hear idle and a drive by at speed.

How's the bike at speed with the baffles out?; Can you hear the radio still and does it drone?

Best,

Scott

Re: The 2017 Goldwing is Out!

A 17 year run from 2001, longer than the 1500......Perhaps 2018 is the year for change, hopefully it won't be catastrophic change to the character of what a goldwing has been for the last 40 years of it's life. When the change does come it had better be similar to the BMW K1600GTL in terms of a luxu...

Stuart, Nice work with the photos. Good to see you have the courage to pull that motor as you did. Inspiring!!! Chain hoist is good, Once I get a garage that will determine what method I pick.

After doing a full fork seal replacement I just want to be finished with it, and having a leak on one fork is knawing at me, so I pray this seal mate fixes the problem.....otherwise it's back to yanking the right fork out of the triple tree and replace and rebuild yet again.

Seal Mate fork seal cleaning tool for removing dirt from fork seals

Well, just did my fork seals and got a leak on one side, so before tearing down the front end of the bike again to do the seal on one side I figure this tool is the last ditch effort. Seems like it works for a lot of people, my feeling is that for $5.00 how could I not give this a try. It's more tha...
