My new (to me) 2002 Honda Goldwing. I just finished a two day jaunt to the mountains from Florida. P.O. hadn't put many miles on her in many years (32k miles) so prior to my long ride I gave her some fresh rubber, fork fluid, brake fluid and brake pads. I did go to the Darkside but hate it. A new Stone is on it's way. Other than the CT, I love her!

Oh from the picture it looked like the cords were showing, probably dirt.😉

This is my ride - 2020 DCT Tour I picked up from Schroeder's last August. I usually prefer functional modifications over trim -

Which mod do I like the most? That's a tough one but probably the RDL seat as it gives me so much more riding time due to increased comfort. I really like the Muth signal mirrors as they give me comfort in believing other's will see me better. My favorite non functional feature has to be my flag. Love flags on a bike!

Favorite ride so far is my most recent 5 day trip thru North Carolina and Tennessee Smoky Mountains. I've posted elsewhere about this trip. This bike is so much fun to ride in the mountains with all it's power and good handling I find I treat it like a sport touring bike. A heavy sport tourer, but sporty none the less...

How can anyone post ONLY 3 pictures of their bike I'm not sure but I chose:
1 - Balsam Gap on the parkway from recent trip
2 - Fontana Lake from recent trip
3 - Suches GA from last year showing a friends Honda CTX 1300 (last bike I owned) and my Goldwing. I meetup with CTX owners every year to ride in the NC mountains and since this pic showed my previous ride and my new 1 month old ride I thought it was a great shot

I've put lots of highly visible reflective tape on back fender, the type that reflects headlights
I use a half cover when traveling to keep dew off seat
indoor outdoor carpet in trunk - I cut to fit.

I just ordered the centramtic wheel balancers to try them out. As my tires have hit 6500 miles I have the nice wobble at 45-50mph. I believe most of that is caused by wheel balancing. I used beads in my CTX and that worked quite well. With all the positive info I read about centramatics I thought I would give that a try instead of the beads. I'm off on a probably 4000 mile trip next month and will be putting new tires on before I go as I don't think I'll make it with current ones. Chip and Seal roads in NC are horrible on tires...
