One thing I wish you had was the Pathfinder Rear LED "kit" for the GL1800; Pathfinder SKU G18RPK. As a package deal, this kit includes (6 RED) & (2 AMBER) bulbs with LED Flasher; the *LIC plate LED bulb being optional for about $5.00 more
Hey GreenGA, we do have all of these on our site just not as a kit. Here are the part #s with links:

six AO7443R $20/ea - Red Bulbs (http://wingstuff.com/products/37480)
Two AO7443A $20/ea - Amber Bulbs (http://wingstuff.com/products/37479)
One AOGl88NC $30 - LED Flasher (http://wingstuff.com/products/37575)
One AOLP9T10 $6 - Optional LED License bulb (http://wingstuff.com/products/37481)

Welcome. I also have a 2016 which I just bought used in May. I was also looking at luggage racks, but I noticed the OEM rack says it doesn't work with the spoiler on and I am not about to take it off. Not to hijack, but any help with a brand that will work with my spoiler would be much appreciated.

After spending the $$$ I already have, my wish list is much shorter. I have thought about the hitch and either luggage rack or small trailer so we can add camping to the trips.

You forgot the most important stuff:
Radar detector and Laser jammer. They arenít cheap, but will save you a bundle.

I kind of fell in love with this seat over the Utopia. It just fits the seat so well. BB52-797A: Smart Mount Removable Backrest for GL1800. That said I also went to AO18SS2: Adjustable Passenger Pegs for GL1800 as they were a lot cheaper and very sturdily built. They can hold my 300lb fat butt where as the Transformers actually flexed when I stood on them.
I also have the Pathfinder front fog and sequential turn lights and as half of my driving is at night they are awesome. The brighter the better,

Another thought for you is the Helibars and Superbrace. Which I got all this from Wingstuff. With new tires which now have 10k on and they still look new.

I've been out pf town for a few...

Some of the suppliers of racks have different feet that raise the rack about 1/2 inch which should clear the spoiler. Check em out.

You're absolutely right! I have them on my Corvette, so why not my wing.

Thanks.

Changing to all LED's will require a different flasher.
Also, make sure the luggage rack you buy will fit with a spoiler installed. Even the Honda one will not fit.
Of course that's IF you can find a spoiler. A lot of posts about the spoiler not being available anymore.

I'm one of those that posted that the color-matched spoiler for my Wing is no longer available; discontinued by Honda.

A few of the posters to my post about the MIA spoiler had some good suggestions, but I am back-stopping my option by looking into Kuryakn's chrome offering, which will work with their trunk rack with the taller feet; about 1/2" taller.

My wife wants me to wait until Wing Ding to see if either/both of these units are on sale for a lower price. I doubt it, but to keep her happy, I can wait.

You can get extension legs for most luggage racks to fit for a spoiler under.
