I have been snooping around here watching & listening for a while. I sure have enjoyed every minute of it. I just bought a 08 GL1800 MotorTrike (New Fastback Kit) from Tony Harris at Harris Auto in Hazelgreen, AL. I just want to say a special thanks to Tony for building me a great trike that we will truly enjoy. This is our first Goldwing & first trike. We have road Harleys before.

Thanks to all of you for the humor & great info you all bring to this forum everyday.

Welcome Swayne. Don't be a stranger.

Looks like you have already put a custom seat on the trike??

Also looks like you have your act together. I see you have the better half washing your truck. You are quite the "operator".:bow::bow:

Swayne,

Hope you like your new trike. Its a little different ride from a regular 2 wheeler but its a lot more fun.

I have the 2008 Gl 1800 in Pearl White with a Motortrike and the Aquawings also. I have discovered that it needs the Baker Trike Wings to keep the bugs off the rear fenders, and the Baker Air Wings to keep the air off the wife. Helps cut down on the noise thru the intercom also. I added some drink cup holders from M&J and both driver and passenger floorboard pegs from Kurykan along with a backrest from Markland.

Lots of things to think about once you get to riding one and want a little more comfort.

Enjoy the trike and I think you will also enjoy this board. Seems like a good bunch of people with helpful information.

See ya
Rip

Swayne, :congrats: on your new trike. You're going to love it. :thumbup:

How does the fastback differ? If you're ever over Albertville way let me know. Maybe we could meet for a ride or at least a cup of coffee and a chat. Nice looking trike, now just :biker: :biker: :biker: but safely. Doc

Congrats

I know you will just love your new Motor Trike. Welcome. The new ride will of course come with a frequent visit from UPS and FEDEX... So be prepared.:p

By the way I just bought a set of Aqua-Rugs custom fit for my Motor Trike Floorboards and they not only look GREAT, it feels wonderful on the feet! You might like to try them at LINE-X-TRUCKS-N-STUFF.COM. Ask for the $39.95 TRI special. I think they retail for $69.95.

Goto http://www.bedrug.com/experience/movie-acid.php to view all about the product.


GOD Bless and Ride Safe my friend!
