A touring bike that carves like a sportbike. There are worse ways to spend an afternoon than aboard a Gold Wing, particularly with enhancements.
'Course, it hasn't been entirely without worry. Nothing serious, but the other day I noticed this odd clacking. The bike still felt turbine smooth, but there was this cyclic click I found most disconcerting.
Silly me. It was my new wristwatch. Had me fooled. I now keep it in the top shelter pocket when I ride so it's not such a distraction from the whisper thrust of that flat six. Even a Rolex isn't as well balanced as that motor.
I've read about the Traxxion stuff and will consider it after we get some miles on it to evaluate what it is now. It ride pretty good to me stock. The first few days I rode without any preload and just tried it with 10 yesterday. It didn't feel that much different, but I don't even have 50 miles on it yet. Stupid rain!
I don't know what helibars are. I'll search for them and check them out. I'm just a little overwhelmed with all the possibilities at this point and need to just get some miles on it before doing anything yet. The first thing I'm really thinking I'll do will be to put some fog lights in those lower cowl spots to throw a low wide beam.
