Anyone travel with a smaller size guitar on their goldwing at highway speeds in the passenger seat? Is it dangerous ? I’m worried about it being kind of a sail.

The guitar I’m thinking of is about a head taller than my torso from the waist to head, so it would be a head taler than the average man from the back seat up.

Thanks

I'm thinking that if it were bungeed down correctly then it shouldn't be dangerous to you, but it would probably be dangerous to the guitar.:laugh:

A friend does it with the neck standing straight up and bungees keeping it in place. It is in a soft case so the bugs don't get stuck in it. I don't know if he does anything like loosening the strings, etc.

Light colored Calton case bungied in place. Soft case won’t protect from humidity, either too dry or too humid. Light color will reflect more radiant heat away.

If it's a guitar you value, buy a cheaper one for the road. Hard shell case will offer more protection from the elements. If it's an acoustic, temperature changes will be slower with a hard shell. Get some kind of rain shell for it also.

I would stand it straight up and strap it to seat back. It will be fine.

I have a Gibson Blueridge that does not ride motorcycles. I have had it almost 50 years and would be real unhappy if I destroyed it in a crash.

Have fun!
