I put the jury 8991 arm rests on my 1800 and only drilled into the small pocket to mount. The back of them goes behind the anttena brackets. If no cb it it is frilled into trunck but comes with hardware to complement the install. IMHO I like the looks of the kury ones over the one pictured above.

I like these. Not mounted to plastic so no possibility that the trunk will be damaged through wear or rough handling of the arm rest. You never can tell when the passenger will swing the arm out and leave it there. Getting them caught on a garage door opening can do some major damage to the plastic.

The Kuryakyn arms are good too, they don't swing out but they too are attached to plastic.

My error. I was thinking of the RIVCO that does not swing out. Still and all, they are both anchored to plastic.

Mike it is actually metal inside and outside the trunk. Same bracket your antenna is mounted to. Been using mine 3+ yrs. No issues. The only thing I would do is add more padding to it, and every once in a while you may have to change the nylon bushings where it rotates.

Is there a video of how to attach the Rivco armrests to a goldwing?

Honda makes over 50 accessories for 5th gen Wings. One of them are arm rests. Their do not interfere with anything so you don't have to move them out of the way to get in the trunk. No chrome to polish either. They are very comfortable for the passing and include elbow holds during hard braking. I've road with 4 different gf's over the years and all liked them.

If you purchase the armrests that mount to the seat grab handles one of the things you have to look out for is that the bracket has clearance for the passenger backrest heater knob. Some brands such as Khromeworks makes a set for the wing that fits the comfort package with no issue. If you get a set that doesnt fit short of trying to relocate the knob they wont fit. Double check before you purchase.
