Landing Gear

Post by agedbikeman »



After my friend droped his new Goldwing DCT for the 3rd time, he showed me a website in France selling Landing gear, made in China but looks quite sturdy.
So we went to Paris and saw it attached to their demo bike, has 6" wheels with solid tyres that look replaceable, electrically operated through a reduction gear with limit switches, when folding and unfolding it resembles a bird's wing.
However we were impressed and both bought one each, cost 3000,euros.

Not fitted it yet but my friend has, and he says it's ok.
Although I have a bolt on trike kit fitted, I yearn for 2 wheels.

I'll do an article on it once fitted and tested

There's a couple of different companies that have developed; one is in Türkiye, and another is out of South Korea. Not sure which version the OP was trying to discuss; there's YouTube videos on both variants.

Thanks for the link. They seem to work pretty good, but I'm not sure I could bring myself to ride a bike with training wheels. :roll:
I will be curious to see how they do on uneven ground like pot holes, speed bumps in parking lots, and gravel roads and driveways. Those have provided me with a bit more excitement than I care for, especially at low speeds.
