About:

Got my first bike, a 1966 Honda 90 Super sport, when I was 14. Over the past few years my bikes have included a 2007 Honda VT 1100 Shadow Spirit and a 2008 Honda VTX 1800T. I just found this 2009 Goldwing at the end of May. A Canadian bike with fewer than 7000 km on it. I can't believe how well it handles and how light it really feels.
Update: By the end of October, I've put on almost 11,000 km on my bike and I love riding it every time I get a chance. It handles MUCH better than you would think a machine this size would. The ONLY problem I've had is a side stand that doesn't lock when it's put down. I've actually had to pick the bike up after parking it facing downhill, and have it roll off the stand. Surprisingly, it isn't that hard to pick up! In August I rode to Sturgis with a couple of friends (both of them on Harleys - very nice bikes, but it was obvious which of the three bikes is really meant for touring). Update: September, 2016. Regretfully, I've had to sell the Goldwing. But I've replaced it with a very nice Honda Valkyrie, which I hope to enjoy as much as the 'Wing.

This is a great multi-purpose tool for the do-it-yourself owner. I only have to pick up one tool to do an oil change, and the slim design means I don't have to remove the front cowl to do it.

I installed this into the left fairing compartment of my bike and installation was quick and easy. You do need a hole saw (check the size on the instructions), but that's as complicated as it gets. As with many other "do-it-yourself" projects on the 'Wing, Honda has made it very easy for owners to do the work. Simple installation, and it works great.

I have had the chance to wear this on a few warm-day rides, and I really like the way it allows air through the mesh, while retaining some armoured safety. I usually wear somewhere between a Large and an XL. This is an xL, and fits just about perfect. The only drawback to this jacket, in my mind, is the Velcro adjusters at the cuffs - and that's only because I also have Velcro closures on my favourite riding gloves. Sometimes the cuffs stick to the gloves when I'm taking the jacket - or gloves, off. Other than that, this is a nice comfortable jacket that packs up tightly and doesn't take up much space in the trunk when not being worn.

These are very easy to install and really make a nice addition to the trunk - and a great match to the chrome trim on the saddlebags

Just added these chrome trim pieces to replace the stock, body coloured, trim and I'm very happy with the look of them. Very simple to install, using the stock hardware. Just be sure to follow the directions and it's very quick and easy.

Installed these on my bike and couldn't believe the difference they make to an, otherwise, dull part of the bike. Very easy to install using the existing hardware. Took about 10 minutes!

These are an excellent addition to give me room to stretch my legs on long rides. Really easy to install, except for the roll pins, but I found a solution to that issue; I used silicone to place the pins over the holes - let them set for about 24 hours, and I had no problem pressing them into the holes during installation. Easy to adjust to exactly the right position for maximum comfort.

I added these to my bike shortly after buying it, and they really are a perfect addition to the otherwise nondescript vent holes in the fairing. Very easy to install.

These were on the bike when I bought it, and my wife loves the comfort and convenience of them. The built in cupholder is awesome, and so easy to use - and it hides away nicely when not in use. The only thing that users need to be aware of is that the armrests need to be swung away from the bike in order to open the trunk, and the passenger intercom connection needs to be relocated. Nonetheless, these are the nicest passenger armrests I've seen for a Goldwing.

Added these Shark Gills to my bike, and they really make the bike look awesome! Love the chrome addition and the "predator" look they give the bike.
