    lately my Wing has started to be very harsh over bumps. Especially for my passenger. Doesn't seem to matter where I set the suspension level. Any Ideas? 2001 GL1800

    Looking to buy a 2009 Goldwing with 54k miles. It would be my first GW although I've ridden over 50 years. I know owner and it has been taken care of. Question is, I've read a lot on forums about Goldwings needing new suspensions. Is this true with all year models, something that randomly...

    Hello all, I'm a brand new member to this forum. I recently bought a brand new 2016 GL1800. I am very happy with almost everything about the bike but the suspension is so bad I'm already thinking about trading it for something else. It just seems so harsh over even small bumps that it...

    I am doing the suspension upgrade to my 2007 GL 1800 with the Progressive coil spring upgrade to my rear shock, Traxxion AK-20 fork kit with springs, Kuryakin fork brace and the All Balls Triple Clamp bearings. I am torn on whether to go ahead and buy the Traxxion Aluminum Triple clamp also. I...

    I wanted to send out my kudos to Paul Bihm in Indiana for the recent work he did on my 2009 level 3 GL1800. I had the Mega Monty installed and I could not be happier. Paul was a great host delivering me to my hotel before getting right to work on my bike that evening. The following morning, Paul...

    My 2012 Wing has veered rapidly to the right since day freaking one! It's been back and forth to the dealer. It's had new 2 new sets of tires. It's had a suspension upgrade. I've called to Honda and complained. The service guys have been back and forth through the bike from end to end. I've...

    I have seen a lot of posts indicating that people aren't aware that there is a Traxxion installer in Florida. This is probably because Traxxion hasn't updated their website in forever, and haven't listed any new installers in the past year or 2. I have been kind of reluctant to chime in on...

    I want to add a trailer hitch and upgrade the suspension (including Progressive Mono Tubes and Rocky's Trippe Tree) on my 2012 Wing. I'm not sure I trust my local dealer--they are afraid to check the oil on a GL1800, never mind change a rear spring! So, I called around and here is what I found...

    If you like the new Progressive Monotubes for your Wing, but want something more than a heavy duty Progressive spring for the back, click through to FaceBook, "Like" Progressive Suspension then leave a comment on their wall asking for a high value GW rear shock. I did. You can too.

    I have a question concerning the suspension on my '05 Goldwing. It has 53,000 miles on it and sometimes, not always, while it is on the center stand, the rear suspension seems to leak down closer to the ground so much that it makes it hard to "rock" the bike off the center stand. I mostly ride...

    I bought a used Bushtec last week and it didn't have the suspension pump with it. I used a bicycle floor pump this weekend for a trip I took. I looked at Bushtec's website to see what they sell. They want $60 for what looks like a small bicycle frame pump w/gauge. I went to a bicycle website...

    Attention all GL1800 owners: I have discovered a permanent fix to the front and rear suspension issues without replacing anything. It really works! I cannot take the credit for this, I found it in a forum written by Tom on 6-16-2008 and commented on by Sam Jones on 4-28-2010 on the GL1800 riders...
