  • Sena Freewire Bluetooth Adapter Review (Long Term)

    Sena Freewire Bluetooth Adapter Review (Long Term)

    Ever since Bluetooth technology hit the market, Goldwing riders have been dreaming about cutting the cord and going wireless. Sena has made this easier with the introduction of the Freewire Bluetooth adapter.

    I have been testing the Freewire for several months on my 2012 Goldwing. I have been using the adapter connected wirelessly to the Sena 20S headset. The Freewire adapter connects to the Goldwing audio system via a special cord (included) that connects to the Goldwing audio DIN

  • FOBO Bike Bluetooth TPMS Review

    FOBO Bike Bluetooth TPMS Review

    There are a lot of choices in tire pressure monitoring systems. I have tried a couple myself, with mixed results. And quite frankly, if Honda had a decent TPMS built into the Goldwing, an aftermarket one would not be necessary. However, the Goldwing TPMS is inadequate, not displaying the actual pressure of each tire. As a result, many Goldwing (and other motorcycle) riders opt for an aftermarket solution.

  • Intelliskin Review

    Intelliskin Review

    When I received my package of Intelliskin products for testing, I immediately noticed two things: First, these garments look really impressive; and Second, there was no way I was going to fit into size Large! After an email to Intelliskin, a set of XL shirts was sent to me.

    Unlike LDComfort and Twisted Core, both of which claim to help regulate body temperature while riding, Intelliskin is geared toward posture apparel that physically connects with your body to achieve optimal posture...

    DynaBeads Review

    Solving Front-End Wobble
    Can Dyna Beads Be The Solution?

    For the past seven years I have been reading about Goldwing riders experiencing the dreaded front-end wobble. I had personally never experienced this phenomenon until I purchased my 2012 Goldwing. My 2005 and 2007 were both "wobble-free" rides. That is the strangest thing about the "wobble"; some Wings have it, and some don't.

  • Doran TPMS Review

    Doran TPMS Review

    I was excited when I learned that Honda was including tire pressure monitoring (TPMS) on the 2012 Goldwing ABS that I purchased in 2011. I was less excited when I learned that the system only alerts you when a tire is low, and does not inform you which tire is low. In addition, there is no indication of the actual pressure inside the tire. Yet another oversight by Mother Honda. I suppose the factory TPMS is better than nothing, but it is far from elegant. So, when the opportunity presented itself for me to install, video, and review the TPMS from Doran, I was pretty stoked. ...

  • Product Review: LDComfort and Twisted Core

    Product Review: LDComfort and Twisted Core

    What you wear can affect how well you ride

    Staying comfortable not only adds to the enjoyment of the ride, it may also increase safety. When you are focused on your body's pain or discomfort, you are distracted from paying attention to traffic or road conditions. Motorcyclists spend a ton on aftermarket seats, backrests, highway pegs, etc., in an effort to improve the comfort of the ride.

    There is a growing number of clothing products that claim to increase rider comfort....

    My Favorite Aftermarket Products

    I have been very fortunate over the past few years to install, test, review and enjoy several aftermarket products for the Goldwing. So, I wanted to take the time to recognize those companies who have the products that I recommend every Goldwing owner purchase. ...

  • Preparing For A Road Trip

    Preparing For A Road Trip

    The summer is prime time for a long, two-wheeled road trip. You want your trip to be safe and trouble-free. Here are a few tips that might help.

    Plan Ahead - I always start prepping my bike at least a week before the upcoming trip. Prepping for a long road trip is fun and builds anticipation for the upcoming journey.

    Bike Cover - When traveling it is a good idea to cover your bike when it is parked outside, or even if you park in a hotel garage. We use a half-cover when...

    Product Review: Veskimo Personal Cooling System

    I don't personally buy the whole "man-made" global warming notion. But, when I am riding in the summer, especially in the South, I begin to wonder if there's not something going on! Riding in 95+ degree temps is not only uncomfortable, it can be dangerous. A rider can quickly become dehydrated leading to disorientation, dizziness, or worse. On two wheels, that spells disaster. There are several techniques that you can employ to stay cooler when riding. The most common is simply pouring...
