About:

I've been riding motorcycles for 32 years. I would like to tour the USA on my Wing and see the sights that I've always read about in magazines, books, or have seen on tv, all of my life. I love being on two wheels and having the peace, freedom and focus that riding brings.

Slowly and surely, I'm making small additions to my Wing to get it just the way I like it.

Rick's Reviews Episode 4: Deersports® Riding Gloves


After having owned a pair of deerskin gloves for working around the yard, these have to be great for riding. I don't ride in the rain so waterproof is a non-issue. Any motorcycle gear is expendable, and is always cheaper than the hospital bill, and far smarter than regrets. $89 per pair? Jump on it….

I noticed one day that my new LED tag light was out. Pulled the lens and found out the end of the LED board had broken off. It seems this is a cheap PC board contraption that isn't meant to be out in the weather or for rough service. I went to Advance Auto and bought a Sylvania white LED tag bulb and it fit right in snugly and looks great! 2 star review because it broke only a month or less after I bought it. Don't waste your money on this.

I bought 4 of these to upgrade the front and rear turn signals. The bulb needs to be pushed in hard to seat, but when it does, it's in there, not going anywhere. I had to use a fingernail to bend outwards the wire contacts on the bulb base some to make contact, other than that they work fine and look good.

Installed this to lighten the load (pun intended) on the electrical system and also save the socket from cooking and failing down the road. Works great, looks good, lasts a long time....

All of the LED bulbs came in and I installed them today (6/23/18). The 7443 bulbs fit tightly into my 2010 airbag model, no worries about them falling out due to loose fitting bases. Looks great and is certainly brighter than stock and am glad I finally bit the bullet and spent the money. Now I won't have to worry so much about a bulb burning out while on the road. Even did the tag light with a white LED, much better.

After reading the reviews about loose fitment, I bought one 7743 bulb figuring if it didn't work well enough, I'd not be out so much. Turns out, it fits great and tightly into my 2010 Airbag model. It's definitely brighter than a stock bulb. I have ordered 5 more to replace all of my running/brake lights (total of 6). Also ordered 4 amber 7743's to replace the turn signals and an electronic load balancer. I'd say replacing the stock bulbs with these is a definite upgrade that while not inexpensive, it is worth it.

Well, I was looking for some nice weather-proof boots, read the reviews and chose these. The quality was good and priced right, but the break-in was horrid. I don't know where everyone is getting the fact they broke in easily, but mine never did. I wore them riding, to work, even wrapped them in a bath towel and beat them with a rubber mallet to get them softer, and they refused to loosen up. They made me feel like I was a Herman Munster extra the way they made me walk. I gave them away to a rider friend down the street. Good luck!

Well, here's the second part of my experience: buy these for all of your bikes before they double in price! I have one on my 2010 Wing and one on my 87 BMW and rode all 4th of July weekend wet bottom free. They make riding in hot weather more enjoyable knowing you won't get off the bike with your pants sticking to your bum. I felt like I rode in a airconditioned car when I got off my bikes. It also adds some firmness to the seat and I noticed I didn't feel any saddle soreness when I got off of them. A perfect product that does what it is supposed to, for a nice price. Some have said they bought two and put one on their backrest. If you do that it would be the total package. Keep in mind this was a 3 day test and not an 'across the USA through rain and snow' test. In cooler weather, I would take them off as they flow too much air and things could get a little chilly.

Installed one on the Wing tonight in about 5 minutes. Haven't tried it out yet as it is thundering as I type this so no test ride yet. I'll report back this week on how it worked.

This is a snap to install. For those of you who have radio controls on the left side fairing, after you remove the trim strip completely, remove all four of the 5mm hex head bolts (3 different lengths, so keep track) and pop out the radio. The fog light harness is underneath that. Remove old one and plug together the new one, turn on ignition and test….easy. No need to pop out the fairing pocket. I don't ride at night, so having six lights on in the daylight is a non-issue in Maryland and this was mainly installed for me to be seen, not for me to see, but I would imagine this mod would throw enough light at night to burn holes in the guys retinas in front of you...

I installed this under the seat to flash all the rear lights on braking. I get a lot of comments on how visible it is after riding on group rides, so I know it gets the attention of those behind me. You can never be to well lit up when riding/braking, so invest in the one item that just may save you from that inattentive driver...

Also, I find that if being tailgated, a few taps on the brakes for a few seconds will flash annoying red lights at them and they will back off or go around you when they can...

I installed these and they have ended up being a wise choice. It's nice to be able to move my feet from the stock pegs to these foot-rests once in awhile to keep the knees and toes limber on long stretches before coming to a stop. I combined this install with the Utopia backrest and what a change in comfort. Glad I did it. Easy to install, take your time, make sure you have the correct sides (there is a slight angular off-set built into the rests to put them away from the cylinder heads when installed correctly) and so your legs will clear the fairing edges.

I received this as a requested Christmas gift and glad I did. It installed beautifully, and works great. It will prevent you from swinging a leg over the seat when getting on and off, but I learned to just climb up on the left peg and sit down (I always use the center-stand). If it do use the side-stand, then just putting my right leg across the seat and doing the little 'hop' settles me into the right spot, no big deal.

Installed the Kuryaykn foot-pegs too and now it makes me feel like I'm invincible riding down the road; what a commanding riding position! And I can ride longer without lower back pain creeping in.

Just remember to get a long enough bread knife to reach all the way through the seat foam. I ended up using a long screwdriver to make it all the way through.
