Good 'ol Rapier, always gives the right answer with a little twist at the end. I subscribe to the theory that " You can't loose if you don't play " and it has kept me from being a looser most of the time; but I could not stand by and see our good member " Rapier " enter his bike and employ the most despicable diversion tactics without a response. Truth be told, I liked his presentation and any one who would stoop so low I deem worthy of my vote, even if it's contrary to my advantage. Two aspects that old members here would attest to : (1). Chopin's posts are NOT usually technical: (2). Chopin's posts are Not always to be taken literal. Remember, a vote for me is a " freedom " vote. P.S. Bike #1 does NOT have a drink holder.

I am truly underwhelmed by the activity on this thread. Here is a chance to strut your stuff, enjoy some accolades or laughter from your peers, and maybe have a bit of fun to boot.

My bike is also not about disposable income. Although, it has 2 drink holders It is about functionality, expression and enjoyment. All the add ons serve a purpose in one of those areas. Sure, the trailer might seem like flare more than function to some; and to the guy who suggested too much disposable income, I might just be pulling a tent out of that trailer, the same night you're in your expensive hotel room. It's all about personal choice....and if it is "disposable" income, can there be too much? I'm confused.
This attempt of a fun game, provided graciously by Superbrace, is a great chance to finally put one of their braces on your GW, for free! We also get to share pics of motorcycles we apparently all enjoy in common. It is intended to let GW owners show the choices we've made. Even if that choice is to take the purist route and leave it stock.
Now, where were we?

@chopin114

I have a couple of questions.

Do you have an opinion on this thread?

I meant, do you have an opinion on this thread?

zh: You don't accumulate 1,372 post on this Forum by NOT having an opinion. Facts few, opinions many. And anyone here would corroborate that self opinion. There has been " much ado about nothing " regarding the " disposable income " remark. Ever hear of the " appeal to sympathy " argument? I needed an " edge " to enter this as I looked at the competition. Well it guess it didn't work because only the " comment" became the topic of interest. Oops! No sympathy on this board!!!!!!!!! Truth be told, I think you need the Superbrace more than me. That complete rig of yours looks mighty heavy.

@Chopin,
Well, with your sig line, I had to ask twice!

I do agree that my bike is heavy and probably would benefit greatly from a Superbrace. That happens to be how I found this thread. I was researching fork braces. I just put new Dunlop E3's on her and thought now would be the time before any cupping starts on the front. The front take off tire was showing signs of needing help from a front brace.
As far as opinions go, or giving them, it looks like I found the right place. Everyone seems to take it, and give it, in stride and to me, the internal slagging, so far, mostly shows friendship and caring.
Anyway, I look forward to hanging out here and learning much more from my fellow Goldwingers and associated vendors.

The poll closes tomorrow. I've run out of funds ( or friends ) to buy more votes. Damn tough to run as an independent in this arena! Barring any unforeseen miracle, let us know how the Superbrace has changed your ride!!!!!!! If you want a second opinion, ask me twice twice.
