Hi Pete,
After one year of ownership I've learnt there's not much easily got at on a GoldWing, not on a 1500 anyway.
However once all the bodywork was out the way I removed the back wheel then the hub assembly and the driveshaft came out with the hub.

Early wings have the clip, later wings do not. So part of the joy of early wing ownership is a pita drive shaft clip.
