About:

My wife and I are together 36 years, and have two kids - **they are available for sale**, highest bid accepted!! Only kidding!!

We are professional Wedding DJ's , She's an Auditor for PA., and I'm a semi-retired LEO, working in the DA's Office. We bought a brand new 12 Goldwing, something we have wanted for a long time and WE LOVE IT!

Of course we blinged it up with ALOT of stuff from Wingstuff! PLUS, We sent the seat out to Russell Day-Long Seating in CA., to be rebuilt to accommodate my hip & back pain (injuries from my cop days) so we're able to ride much longer distances with that new custom built seat!!
Well I must say that every single dollar we spent on that seat, WAS ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT! "WOW" ---what a HUGE difference it made! We have done ALOT of riding, and a heck of a lot more than we did on our Silverado.

We have been to every state from Key West,FL to the tip of Nova Scotia & many more, including Tail of the Dragon, Mt Rushmore, Surgis, Devil's Tower, WY, Yellowstone & all the way to the top of Pike's Peak Colorado!! We've put over 40,000 miles on in just over 3 years! The seat is VERY comfortable and allows us to ride much greater time & distance with alot less pain! I HIGHLY recommend them! Thanks Russell!

We also had a custom built Escapade Excel MC Trailer from Open Road Outfitters! Dale was a pleasure to deal with! Plus my wife & I have torn our wing & trailer completely apart & installed over a thousand LEDs. They look AWESOME, and everywhere we go, people have to take our picture!!
Even in Disney World, people were more interested taking pics of OUR WING, than they were with Mickey Mouse!!...LOL

But the real reason we did it is to be SEEN and NOT hit. I did accident reconstruction, so I know the dangers of riding a bike & we want to be as visible as possible! When I see people texting & driving-it frustrates the hell out of us when we see it! PLEASE don't text while driving! Save a life!It might be OURS!

I am reviewing everything we buy from Wingstuff, there's ALOT! I hope you find it helpful. Although I have slowed down, I'm still finding things to add on a monthly basis, Thanks to my wife for not killing me ...LOL

BTW-Rodney at WS is the best! Thanks Rodney for all your help!!! & to Wingstuff, for helping make our wing an unforgettable ride!!

Maybe we'll see you on the open road! Drive Safe ! Ciao!!

Just like most other Goldwings, we were recipients of the infamous "Wing Wobble" that occurred around the 40mph mark, especially when decelerating.

At first we thought it was our tires, (Bridgestones) but soon realized that wasn't the issue. So we had the dealer install the "Super Fork Brace". It made a bit of a difference in stability in the front end, but did not eliminate the "wobble".

Then we had the Centramatics installed. They DID make a difference especially with a new set of tires (again Bridgestones) ...BUT after a few thousand miles, the wobble returned like a bad habit!

We finally tried the "All Balls Bearings". THAT SOLVED THE WOBBLE ISSUE. So along with a new set of tires (Dunlop Elite 3's this time) We set off on a trip to Nova Scotia. What a huge difference, NO WOBBLE and our tires got many more miles even with pulling the trailer...

So bottom line, the Centramatics DO help, but I would try the bearings first if youre trying to eliminate the "wobble". Because it's a much cheaper way to go...Overall, I DO like the Centramatics, because along with new tires, you'll think you're riding on rails it's so smooth! I just wish they were a bit less expensive!!

These really look so much nicer than the grey posts, HOWEVER they are a very soft material and SCRATCH EASY! The simple friction of your feet/pants continually rubbing as you ride makes for a very scratchy look. Its too bad they aren't real metal/chrome, they'd certainly last much longer. At $120 bucks, you can't just keep changing them!! Sorry WS, gotta give 3 stars for cost/longevity

These little wind screens make a HUGE difference between keeping the cold air off you to keep you warm, or directing air toward you on a hot summer day to keep you cool!They really do make a big difference in your riding comfort! Check out their other products too, I highly recommend them!

We have a 2012 Wing, and have stayed with the Bridgestones until last year. That's when we switched to the Dunlop Elite 3's, We found less wobble, and a much smoother ride with the Dunlops.

The Dunlop Tires definitely last longer, however I did notice that my stopping distance has INCREASED with the Dunlops. The Bridgestones did have a better grip, especially in the rain. I especially noticed while pulling our trailer thru the mountains of Tennessee & N. Carolina...That's because they are a softer rubber compared to the E-3's.

Overall it comes down to personal preference, and I prefer the Dunlop Elite 3's over the Bridgestones because we do alot of long distance riding pulling a trailer---so for longer wear we chose the Dunlops..Either way---Ride Safe!!

I installed this about 1.5 years ago, and it works great...It holds just about any soft drink or water bottle. However the mount broke when I was removing to take the seat off to access the inside of bike. So I'm going to have to replace...I give 3 stars for longevity!
