  • Honda Goldwing / Tour DCT Parking Brake Indicator Flasher

    Has anyone gotten this item yet? I am wondering if it actually causes you to remember the parking brake. Since this is the first bike I have owned with a parking brake I am driving off often without taking it off. Slowly I am getting to the point of checking each time but still seem to forget until I wonder why the bike is such a slug.

      Honda should of came out with the flashing parking brake indicator, seeing this clearly is a DCT only feature. (Should would save on warranty claims)

      Lewis did a real nice job on the Trunk lights. (Are you Paying Attention HONDA?????)

        Probably used my idea and tied into the sidestand switch circuit.

          One word. "Royalties"
          Great way to keep them checks coming in, to help subsidize your bike habit I say.

            After driving off with the PB applied a few times, I decided to be proactive. I glued a retractable key chain to the top of the PB and attached a piece of coiled cord from a telephone handset to the key ring. When I put the parking brake on, I loop the cord over the left grip- that way I'll never forget to take it off

                    Those lights do look nice. I ordered the indicator, not going to hold my breath as I'm still waiting on a order direct from EC since 05/13. Guess he's busy stocking up for Wing-Ding. I went back an took another look at those lights, rather slick. In fact I would venture to say all most all of the product out of EC is top notch.

                      I too have been waiting on an order from EC for quite some time, since March 25th. It is the rear LED reflector light. Apparently Lewis is writing the installation instructions.

                    The best way to find out what the hold up is on any order with any vendor is "To pick up the phone & Call them"

                    I do it all the time. easy peasy.

                    And you are correct. EC's products are in fact "Top Notch"

                      Nice stuff will have to wait and see the results and better reviews on this product. Was in the same boat as everyone else there i just don't use the parking brake much at all any more. Not many steep upgrades down here in Fl.

                        I was going to ask, if you owned bikes in the past without a parking brake, what is the bi\g deal with setting a park brake you never had. Pretend you still don't have one.

                          i used the parking brake once and forgot to disengage it. ive never used it since. i just angle the bike against the curb like real men do, lol.

                          The GW old GWers wish Honda would make.

                            Unfortunately my inclined driveway does not have a curb.

                            Just curious.
                            What will you do when there is no curb available?. (Surely you don't bring one with??) lol

                            I have repaired a few bikes that the wind blew over, because believe it or not.
                            The wind can and does move a 900 pound bike around.
                            The GL1500's were the worst for a slight wind to knock them over.

                            I have always left my bikes in first gear after watching one get pushed off the side stand by a good gust of wind when I was a wee lad.

                            "Chit Happen" comes to mind.

                            Tip of the day.

                              use the parking brake i reckon, but ive never ran into that issue. im a quick lerner, ill never leave it on again. after leaving the gas release cubby open, i always do a little pre flight check.
