So my friend and I are on our way home from the Texas Hill Country Ride and we spend the night in Fort Sumner, NM. The next morning we are heading NW on hwy 84 and we find ourselves gaining on another Wing rider. He comes on the CB and introduces himself and then starts an interesting conversation about Goldwings specifically the 1800. He is telling us that he has had his Wing up to 150 mph. Now I have owned 2 1800's and my friend is on his fourth. The most I've been able to see is about 127 GPS and that was on level road at 1200 foot of elevation. My friend is challenging his claim in a very polite way, but then the guy comes back with how his buddy took the Grandpa Governor off of his Wing and it would easily do 175 mph. My friend and I had several chuckles about this for the rest of the ride back. Now we all know there is no truth to any of this, although this story is 100% true, but........................................just in case, where is this durn Grandpa Governor located? I need to get it out of there!!!
