    Cool looking bike, what kind of motorcycle is that? Looks like a sport touring bike.

    I am yet to learn to program the radio.

    I can hear the radio at 90 mph through the helmet through the speakers and through the earplugs.

    Volume goes down as you slow down to a stop.

    Volume adjusts to ambient noise as you accelerate.

    Cruise control is nice, and the speedo is super accurate.

    Goldwings have a three button remote - one for the trunk, and one for each saddlebag. They take ridiculousness a step further too. Not only can you adjust the air shocks, and record two settings (laden with passenger and unladen) for them, then select either via buttons by your left knee, but you can adjust the motorized headlights up and down a few degrees to account for changes in ride height.

    I'm fairly certain there are things I never figured out. I also passed on the CB radio or trunk mounted disc changer.

    You need more accessories.

    Was it my windshield comment? Because I also had a custom stainless braided front brake line made today, since the new bars are a bit wider than stock. It's a pretty outrageous ride at this point.

    Rossi looks like his weight is shifted more towards the rear. Pedrosa would seem to be at a disadvantage; being smaller, he probably can't muscle his bike as much as Rossi. (Have we ever seen Pedrosa do an epic save, a la Edwards or Rossi?) Despite his size, Pedrosa is competitive, and yet you don't see many riders of his ability and size come out of the smaller displacements.
    They guy in the yellow will become Saint Valintino because of all of the "falls" he has saved and all of the "lost cause" races he has won.

    I was out on the ST tonight in the moderate rain and fog. Full bags (I put the side bags on again). It was a dark and stormy night. I had on my Aerostich Don't Flatten Me Yellow Gore Tex Darien jacket.

    I kept telling myself 'you are like an all weather fighter jet on a top secret mission'.

    It doesn't get more m/c Fred than that you pathetic motorweenies.

    The windshield/fairing setup on that bike really does keep the weather off you in the rain. Got home and I was pretty damn dry, even my ordinary jeans. Those conditions suck enough, but on a non-touring bike without a fairing they'd be much nastier.

    This is wack ! Do you guys have a control tower you call to clear for
    take-off
    The bikes Im used to, a gas gauge is considered a luxury. Your cruise
    control is a Throttle Rocker You have two ???

    I took those plastic things off the grips. It's got cruise. From memory, the left side lower controls are headlight trim dial and air shock settings, along with emergency flashers and driving lights. Left upper on grip are hi/lo, Radio/Intercom/Weather/CB/CD controls, turn signal, and horn. Right side lower is grip heater controls, right side upper is start, reverse, cruise, and kill switch. The upper center buttons are the odometer and display - including ambient temp. Lower center controls are mostly duplicates of the left upper, as far as radio/CB, etc.

    That flat six had plenty of power in every gear. I once pulled from a dead stop in fifth.

    "reverse"
    Thats nice !
    I have a log boring tale to tell about seeing one of them for the first time.
    Exit now if you feel you might be bored.....


    OK... so Im rolling back from Allentown PA on some backroads. Im on a
    ZX-9, piped, etc...Im rolling...75 or so. Out of nowhere crazy headlights
    appear in my rearview. ITs very dark so I cant see anything but lites.
    It looks sort of like a 727 on approach in the mirrors. Cop....hmmmmm ????
    I roll up to 80, and its closing on me !! WTF ?!?!? This cant be a Harley,
    I determine......still closing on me....90, hes right up on me !! the road
    is mildly curvy but at 90, its some semi-serious leaning/weighting/unweighting
    to hie thee down the road...Ok, strait-a-way about a mile ahead, lit, I can see
    a blinking 2-way stop...I tuck, roll up to about 115 and hes right there..
    These crazy alien headlites menacing me like Christine or something.
    SLow down for the intersection where he goes left ...I see what it is when
    he goes under the street lite....GL1800 !!!! I explained to to my Brother
    the next day and thats how I found out about the new generation one.
    The 9 is a seriously fast bike. I was very impressed how the GL hung
    in there with no discernible drama from my perspective

    The GL1800 was designed by one of Honda's sportbike engineers. You could bake a potato in its headlights. And yes, the drama of 115MPH on your ZX-9 is a walk in the park for the Goldwing. Seriously. Was his wife on the back, asleep? Or maybe reading a book?

    Oak - do you mean the VTX1800? Each cylinder displaces more than most sportbikes, even more than my Harley. They're the same size as small block Chevy pistons.
