Seriously considering this for my official "old man" bike.
« on: February 28, 2019, 05:27:58 PM »
I'm told that the engine bumper has a highway peg attachment that will replace it coming out this year.


They will have one for test ride in April, He said I could take it when they open and return it at closing.

Not sure about the Root Beer color, but this is my "old man" bike also.  Pretty sure it will tow a trailer without even breaking a sweat.

That is wicked sweet. The color is bitchin'. GoldWings are awesome.
You should buy it.

Carry on.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

My brother loves his.
He went from quite a few HDs for many years, to BMW to the Honda.
Please share the name or part no of the bumpers with pegs so I can pass it along to him.

That new rebuild is amazing. Lost a lot of weight and a lot of girth up front. Feels right nice on the showroom floor.

The add on highway pegs will be the solution for knee pain.

"This just in. Pennsylvania man invents a new rationalization for common core math studies, insisting that two equals one. When questioned about Mr. Larkin's assertions, Mrs. Graham, Mr. Larkin's former third grade math teacher, now retired, said, 'Oh, that Jackie was such a sweet boy, but we didn't let him count out the crayons very often.' Officials are looking into Mr. Larkin's finances, as this may help explain how he and Wesley Snipes were able to collaborate on their new book entitled Taxes are for the two or one of us.

That's not gross ugly brown, that's awesome candy rootbeer.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

My uncle has had Goldwings as long as I have been on this Earth. They have taken them all over. He is the only other person in my entire family that rides.

That's metallic poo, bro. No brown on motorcycles. Save it for station wagons.

Your monitor is probably not calibrated correctly,  metallic poo is darker and has a hint of green.
