You 2018 guys just disregard this post :)

I had 65k miles since I last replaced my bushings and sliders. Way overdue, not a difficult job. I also replaced my seals, they were not leaking, just pm since I was already in there. This will probably be the last time I change Goldwing fork bushings:(

I expect a 2019 sometime in the next year or two. I am having too much fun on my Africa twin.

MisterK,
I see you're remote camping. What a kick. May ask, what it your daily routine? That is, is what I'm seeing in the pic a daily thing or, just a weekend getaway? I envy you and that type of free-styling it.

I try to get out about one night a week.





I like to do this in my hammock with a nice little fire...

Now that is pure class! Being able to get away from it all on a whim. What a great plan.

I do "believe" that there just might be a few of us here on this board that may be a "tad" jealous! :crying::crying::wink2:

With my GW, my most favorite thing to do is to set up a base camp and do "shamrock" tours by day. Yes ... I'm jealous too.

Sorry, but I have to comment on your picture. Some might miss what I see. But one of your sliders has an unusual wear pattern that is transferring into the one bushing. Hopefully the slider got replaced too.

Hey Greg, thanks for the guided pics, yes I replaced everything. Yes, that slider was shot!
