About:

I retired from the Air Force in 1997 after 23 years active duty, 10 enlisted and 13 commissioned.


I've been riding since 1969 and have always owned Hondas, from the 350 street bike I bought new for $350 to the new GL1800 I picked up in April.


My wife was an occasional passenger on my 1100 Sabre, but adorns my 'Wing regularly.


One good thing about high gas prices: we're seeing more bikes on the road!

Memory Foam Seat Pads w/Medical Grade Soft Gel
ITEM CODE: PG02732

05.17.2010

5 Stars

Had this for over 2 years now and still use it all the time. The memory foam added even more height, so if you have a short torso, I'd leave it in. In my case, I look over the windshield when it's at the highest setting, so the added height was not desirable. That is the only issue I have with the gel, too. Although it makes long rides lots easier, it puts me higher in the saddle. I've gotten used to it over time, but being higher makes peg-scraping turns more difficult with the higher center of gravity.

Helmet Strap Quick Release
ITEM CODE: HIQR,   SKU: HIQR

5 Stars

Absolutely love mine, but must include caveat: as pointed out by a local helmet dealer, modifying a helmet could affect safety or DOT rating. I'm personally satisfied that it works well enough that I put one on my helmet and my wife's.

Headset Cord Holders
ITEM CODE: PG00159

10.08.2009

3 Stars

I'm rating these down because they are so tight they damaged the plug. Great to have something that really holds onto the plug since the rubber OEM one is loose enough that the plug can be bumped out. Had to go back to the OEM because my wife couldn't get the cord out on her own while seated.

Magnetic Drain Plug & Final Drive w/Washer
ITEM CODE: WSPLUG,   SKU: WSPLUG

06.22.2009

4 Stars

I rated this 4 stars, not because it doesn't work, but because it may not be necessary. I bought two so I could use one in the motor oil and one in the final drive oil. When I pulled the final drive oil plug I discover that it was an OEM magnetic plug! (I have an '07 Wing.) Be sure you check your plug before buying this one for final drive oil... the OEM model is a better design that you won't want to replace with this one. For motor oil it's a great idea.

HP4 Pro Performance Oil
ITEM CODE: PG03484

06.22.2009

4 Stars

I like this oil. It performs well, and if changed every 4,000 miles it should have little degradation in that time. Personally I prefer full-synthetic because it maintains lubricating properties and viscosity better than mineral oils. The advantage of this mix is the higher hot-viscosity, but it's those viscosity additives that leave oil first and you're left with 10W30 after a several thousand miles. So if you change according to the manual schedule, then I suggest full synthetic. That's what I'm going back to.

Rock N Roll Hearos Ear Noise Filters
ITEM CODE: TR501010,   SKU: TR501010

05.30.2009

5 Stars

I like that they are rated at only 26db of sound dampening so that I can still hear my music, car horns, and sirens. They were a little small for my ear canals so I have to seat them pretty deep, but they are easy to insert, remove, and adjust. They work well, are reusable, and cheap. Can't ask for much more than that. I recommend them, even to those who wear full face helmets.

5 Pin Din to 3.5mm Headset Adapter
ITEM CODE: EC03300,   SKU: EC03300

05.29.2009

1 Star

Such a great idea but so horribly implemented. When I plugged in my earbuds it nearly blasted my eardrums out! I turned down the volume to zero for a low, but distorted listening level. On level one, it's loud and distorted. Forget about any level above that. This thing is totally unusable as a headset adaptor. I opened it up to see if there was a short circuit or missing load matching resistor, but the whole thing was filled with plastic resin.

Memory Foam Seat Pads w/Medical Grade Soft Gel
ITEM CODE: PG02732

05.25.2009

5 Stars

I've had mine for over a year now and still have no problems. I felt it was a little large (long) for my seat, so I trimmed it to match the contours of the saddle better, then re-sewed the cover to match. My buddy got one the same day I got mine but has never trimmed his. It's a matter of preference for your butt. We both took the memory foam out; it's not really needed.

ITEM: EC03130

2 Stars

This unit will NOT charge the newest (2008) generation of iPods. This adaptor is designed to charge through the 12V iPod connection (firewire) which Apple discontinued with the new iPod. The new iPods require 5V charging through a different pin on the connector (old iPods will also charge on the 5V line). This unit will function for audio, but your battery will need to be charged externally. In addition, if you use iJet remote, the battery on the iPod won't last more than a few hours. I contacted Electrical Connection with no resolution; hopefully they will make the change, but it will likely cost more.

Bridgestone Tires for GL1800 & F6B
ITEM CODE: PG02700

06.22.2008

5 Stars

Follow-up on previous review. I have over 12,000 miles now and have enjoyed these tires the whole time. Yes, I have some cupping, but so does my friend's Dunlops E3's. We bought our 1800's the same day and ride a lot together, but his came with Dunlops. When the cupping got bad enough, the wobble showed up, but only when I take both hands off the bars; not something I do often. Turns out the 1800 has a cheap front end, with suspension on one side and an anti-dive on the other. Replacing the fork is the answer, but I don't have the grand it takes to upgrade. So, for now I will replace my stones with new stones, put up with the minor annoyance, and enjoy the bike as is. For what it's worth, my buddy is replacing his Dunlops with new Dunlops. He really likes his tires, too.

Update on my previous review where I gave it 5 stars. I don't know what caused it, but the finished either tarnished or faded, but the color went from a nice uniform gold to gold with green streaks and some rainbowing effect. I had to remove it.

Chrome Shifter Peg Cover w/Rubber Inlay
ITEM CODE: BB21556,   SKU: BB21556

09.14.2007

2 Stars

It's OK, but ShowChrome should have designed it to fit over the metal peg without the rubber. Had they done so, they could have made it a smaller diameter that is closer to the original. This puppy is about twice the diameter of the original and will take some getting used to, especially with boots. The awkwardness of the new shifter size and difficult installation put it down to 2 stars. I cannot recommend them.

If you decide to get them, the necessary wrench is 2, not the 2.5mm called out in the instructions. I recommend skipping their dumb installation method and go with this: flatten two spots on the sides of the round metal peg base with a dremel, then drill a small indentation into each of the flat spots for the set screws (if you're good at drilling, you can just drill the spot using a punch to start). The shorter set screws will work if you don't go crazy with the flattening or drilling. When you're done it'll be rock solid, but I agree with the other reviewers that locktite would be good insurance.
