G'day to Everyone!

I have an 88, it has the fader control fitted, the Goldwing emblem i think is a little second rate and annoys me as it seems to be in the perfect spot to act like a mirror when riding in sunshine.

I got a standard one, opened it up, fitted a slice of golden plastic (from a honey bucket), carefully cut out a section from the radio surrounds and fitted it there. I also fitted an Interstate radio as i do not use the intercom or cassettes and put some Velcro on the fader where the old badge was so i can attach my MP3 player.

Whdya think?
