    Hello, I read that you have made mounting straps for the luggage rack on your Wing. I am very interested in seeing what yours look like and how they're mounted. Any chance you could send me a pic or two of what yours look like? Much appreciated.

    Ok; Al, I got both messages. As far as the lights go, that's a new one for me.
    Has any other work been done on the wing lately ?????.

    It's been a while but if I recall if you remove the seat there is one of those clam shell cover on a large connector next to the frame on the right side, you might want to open that connector and spray it with contact cleaner, if I recall right some of the lighting for the right rear goes through it, I'm not sure about the front, I'll have look at the manual and see if I can come up with some thing. I got our Senior Exercise class this morning and I look when I get back.

    Hi Ron,

    Al, here. I've got a question for you about 1500 lighting. I removed my battery yesterday to check the cells, top them off, and put a charge on the battery. I removed the battery by disconnecting negative lead first, then the Positive. I reconnected positive first, then negative. When I went for a ride today, I noticed

    my running lights on my right rear bag , and the right front faring do not illuminate with the power on. All other lights work fine. Any ideas what I may need to check? My connections to the battery were also cleaned and tight. Thanks for any ideas you may have.

    Al

    Thanks Ron, Dave just called and arranged for pickup the weekend of the 23 & 24th. Thanks for you help. Seems like we had both lost each others contact information.
    Thanks again.

    Ride safe!

    Ron, Hope the red 99 wing has been working out well for you, haven't been on the site since you took it.
    I am trying to locate your friend who was buying my white 97 Goldwing last fall. He sent me a check and I haven't heard from him after that and I can't find his contact information. Would like to get in touch to see if he is still going to take the bike. I'm trying to clear some space in our shop and would like to get the bike to him. Any help you could provide would be appreciated. Thanks

    Ron, thanks for your info on my electric problem. Your view was pretty much what I was thinking. I guess my Irish luck was with me, as I first went about shaking some wires and immediately blew the fuse. Problem resolved by separating the multi-pin connection under the seat and cleaning it and reassembly. No problem since! Thanks and may the luck of the Irish be with you!

    Morning Phil;
    I know where it's at, There is a Navy Air base on Whidbey Island just out side of Oak Harbor, Wa, that about an hour or so from here. And there is a Fort Whidbey a little farther down the island, but I'm not sure what the Navy has to do with it. I would think either would be a good duty station.
    The weather in this part of the country is pretty mild, year round.
    Hope you get to come see Him/Us, you folks could hole up here. But there are some nice motels in Oak Harbor.

    Hey Ron,
    My Navy son just received his orders and will be stationed at Fort Whibey Island. He's pretty excited. Do you know anything about that place?
