Nice to see you here Mark.
Wish I knew how to post a picture of the Lynx.

Okay good. Can you have speakers and a mic in your helmet to listen to the radio, communicate with your passenger and talk to people on a CB? Can you switch between the various function easily? Can you do all that with blue tooth connectivity or are you plugged in? Thanks.

sold the wing and bought the vee strom the next day.
Also traded for a Strom, but still own a wing.
I've owned 7 wings. '75,'81,'84,'93,'94,'06 and currently own an '88.

In July '11 I traded my '06 (53k miles, that I had bought new) for an '11 Wee Strom. The lovely Rea hardly ever rides anymore so I thought my wing days were over. Bought the '81 last fall 2011 and fixed it up over the winter. My buddy decided to quit riding and sold me his '88. The Lovely Rea will occasionally still go for a ride and we went camping in WV early summer. RR in my sig line. I do LOVE the wing when the weather turns cold for exactly the same reason someone living in FLA would hate it - Full Fairing.

The GL1800 are a better handling and better powered bike than the 1500's but I rarely ride hard enough to notice.

Had to sell off all my bikes, including the very sweet and usable KLR650 I put so much work into
I kept this 85 GL1200 in pony color, possibly the slowest color available

Yes, yes, and yes (but I prefer to be plugged in)

It's okay on the bike speakers, but the great thing is using the intercom system to have 2 way conversations, CB, Weather, Radio and whatever else you want to hook up to an auxillary plug, betwenn yourself and your passenger. Helmet speakers are much better than the bike speakers if you get decent quality. My last wing had a separate volume control for the passenger, which was also very handy. I need to install one on the current wing now.
I haven't figured out how to integrate BT and the phone into the system yet, but I understand it can be done.

Agreed on both. Sorry to hear about the sell off, but I love the Pony Wing.

I love my Wing

I absolutly love my wing. It pulls like a team of mules. I have a 1994 Wing with a 2004 Hannigan double wide sidecar. The wife has a mini swamp cooler to keep her cool when in the heat. We rode thru Arizona about this time last year, it was 118 degrees, she stayed cool and I well......you know.


I bought it March 2012, it had 103,000 on the clock, today it nearly has 125,000 on it and I expect to get another 100,000 out of it.

The exhaust collector crapped out and I found some TorqueMasters to replace with, it gave the stock exhaust a nice rumble.


That also added some low end torque too.

This is us headed out with our camper trailer to Cali last year. The Goldwing is the best purchase I made in the past few years.


Why side car? This is why.


You just find different ways to continue to ride. I just added a wheel and kept going. Don't know if I will ever get back to 2 wheels, I just remember the 2 years it took to get back to riding and I think.....naw, I'll stay with 3 wheels.

I know I was long winded, the 1500 is a workhorse, and it just keeps on going.
