Dorjet Landing Gear

Post by tuntavern »



Has anybody used their product or dealt with the Doorjet company?
They seem to have the nicest landing gear for Goldwings that I've seen. They are pricey, but I'm interested now that I'm in my 60's.
The company is in Turkey, so naturally I'm a bit leery spending that much money without knowing their reputation.
Thanks for any info.

Not to be punctilious.... but it is spelled Dorjet. Makes it easier to google if the spelling is correct :D

I decided on a CanAm Spyder instead.

He'll also be in hot water with Honda lawyers if they discover the fact that he is using their trademarked Goldwing logo on his product....

Perhaps that is why it is manufactured in Turkey...

But seriously, it looks better than anything I have seen so far.

Since the 'dealer locator' on their web page is a bit fouled up, it's not clear if there is a dealer here in North America for the product.

Three large for the product and at least another thousand dollars for installation?

Yeah, it's cheaper than doing a full-on trike kit to a bike, but...

If I was the manufacturer, I think I'd be working my a$$ off to get something developed for the current-model of GL1800. I think they'd make up a much better market to put it om something that's available.
