  • What do you think of these armrests?

    At $600 for a set of these. Do you think your wife will ask. "Honey do think my azz is that wide?"

      One of my wife's great grandsons is autistic and won't ride on my new Wing because of the change of the passenger grab handles. For that reason alone I would get them. However two things keep me from it......1.) I'm a cheap winger I would maybe do $50. 2.) They are butt ugly!

        It may be the angle, but they also seem rather low.

          In the case of an unfortunate “get off” I would think a body Might get caught up in there and mangle something pretty good....

            Max told me he would sell thousands. At $600 a pair for two handles? I don't think so. They are too long and stand out too w i d e. Change these two things and sell them for $199(which is still high) and they would sell.

                  Sorry Vernon. I learned my lesson the hard way trying to help Goldwingers.

                  I refuse to go down that road again.

                  I do agree with you description of what should of been done in the thread I harvested the pictures from,before the Narcissistic boob had them removed because folks were calling him out on these monstrosities.

                  I saw the need for a more useful uncomplicated set of pass/grab bars when I was at the long beach bike show.
                  Then reality hit me and my common sense kicked in and said "We aren't going there"..

                  For the record my CNC guy didn't charge me a dime to make a prototype for my Risers. Because he owns the machine.
                  So no need to charge his customers more than necessary. (not the case for the loon who has to rant about how much everything costs)

                      Max makes good suspension but it is obvious someone has gotten under his crawl on these grab handles. Someone hopefully will product a sensible option for a improved grab handle. Seriously $600 for a pair of handles??? That has to be some type of record! The Traxxion option obviously are not them. Although I do find it humorous watching Max jab himself & beat his stomach with them.

                        Yea, I agree. not EVERYONE is going to like your product. Cant have a thin skin in business. He needs to let his detractors bloviate.

                            It takes someone old (or Irish...) to fully understand the implication of that phrase, Matt. Ralph Waldo Emerson, of course, was the originator of it.

                          we bought Max Mcalister's grab rail at Wing Ding 40 last year.
                          we paid $ 600 + 35% currency exchange. we have no regrets what so ever. the product is professionally made and very pleasant to the touch and not hot in the sun.

                            I don’t know it for sure, HOWEVER if MY comments above “prompted” Max to make that video well, my life is complete...

                            LOL

                            trying to “stab” himself with his own product is PRICELESS!!!!

                                I know this is an older thread but I just saw it.At $600 bucks for grab handles that look like they should be about $150 at the most Then to post a video like he did I wouldn't take them as a gift.Plus I'm from Canada so with the exchange that's a real rip off

                                  Big , that's great that your great grandson likes them. I'm sure he enjoys riding with you. I'm sure that's a special relationship.

                                  Stupid looking be damned- you added them to your bike for a darn good cause!.

                                  You guys are both right! This grandson never lets me go over about 15 mph, and the rides rarely last more than maybe 5 to 10 minutes, but they always seem to be the highlight of his day and that warms my soul.

                                You owe me a monitor.

                                I had forgotten about this insane video.


                                I was eating some pop corn, When he started stabbing himself with his POS handle.

                                I spit all over the screen.

                                That guy has a Hugh hole in his marble bag.

                                Funny as hell to watch him make a jackass of himself nonetheless!
