Our heatwave finally broke and the weather has become bearable again. The heat wasn't too bad on its own but the local summer traffic has everything at a stop and go speed. Twice I had to pull over and shut the bike off because it was overheating. The last couple of weekends I've been leaving the house between 430-530 in the morning and heading inland, way less humid and a lot fewer tourists about.Went for a ride today. Perfect weather here in Tennessee. Felt great.
My brother in law (age ~70) has a back injury and the Gold Wing is pretty much all he will ride these days. He goes on cross country trips a couple times a year.
Looks fantastic. I’m contemplating getting a bag like yours. You’d be happy with forward controls, only problem is that they are $400.00 from HD. Makes riding way more comfortable.As promised.

I installed the "luggage rack" myself, and had my mechanic install the custom sissy bar, as it involved unbolting the shocks and (I think) the signal lights. He said at one point they had three guys working on it, lol.
Anyway, the sissy bar is very high quality, heavy gauge steel, custom made in the USA by a guy on eBay. Now I have something to tie a bag or a backpack to.
