Found a good article on the history of the front end. Interesting read and also has information on the TRAC system. Here is the web site: https://www.bikeme.tv/index.php/history ... nd-part-i/

Good article, even though it ends at 2009 with BMW's Duolever/Hossack suspension.
If the article were brought up to date, it would mention the new Goldwing
suspension which appears to be a new Hossack styled setup.
