OK I know this is silly, but I recently purchased a new 2018 Goldwing. How do you turn on the bright lights?:surprise:
Don't feel bad when I bought my bike the dealer didn't know how to work the high beams either.

Interesting (??) Wow did the new bikes changed that much??

I rode one once a last year, for approx, 15 minute test ride...(Americade) .It was nice but didn't realize, there was such a change...

Yes. Completely different. Until you get used to it, the directional switch is well hidden.:grin2::grin2:
Plus even after 10K mi I am not sure even now I can hit the horn button in a panic. The new controls are not an improvement IMHO

The new control locations are not a improvement thats for sure...it took me 3 months of riding before I could hit the horn button in a split second without looking...took some time to be able to hit the the turn signal button without looking too.

I got a self-adhesive clear plastic drawer stop from Ace hardware and placed it over the horn
button. You can see the horn symbol through it, and it provides a tactile locator for the horn button.
