Welcome Mark
I second it on changing out the Harley for a wing.

I just sold my 2014 Street glide last weekend 14k with 16000 miles it was mint and ran great however one ride on a 2005 wing changed all that.
I ride with the patriot guard all the guys in my sector have Harley for their ride.
Now their is one big yellow wing in the group why are those guys always behind me they cant seem to keep up with the 1800.
Anyway it was the right choice for you and welcome from Minnesota.
I now have two wings a 2005 and a 2010 both yellow please dont ask why. I guess just because I can.

Bought my 2018 DCT in February and today I turned 10,000 miles. All I have is a back rest and a cupholder and Iím good to go. The only other item I use on long trips is the air hawk seat cushion. Phenomenal riding bike.

There are some YouTube videos showing how to make it work. I've had luck by first, turning on my helmet, then turn on the bike and let it pair. In one of the videos, he says to not even pair your phone to the bike and I confirmed that works. I wish Android Auto would work....there are rumors it will, but so far...nothing..

Welcome to the forum Mark. I too am new to this forum and like you I tried to make my 2017 Harley RoadGlide Ultra more comfortable on long rides. Ohlins shocks and a Mustang seat helped but after a roundtrip from Alabama to D.C., I surrendered and bought a pre-owned Red 2012 Goldwing Comfort Audio Nav model. I still have the Harley but after riding the Goldwing for the past two weeks on my 170 mile daily commute, I've decide to sell the Harley. I' 67 years old and I find the Goldwing much easier to handle than the Harley. In May 2020 I plan to ride Route 66 to California then Join Run For The Wall ride from Ontario California to Washington, D.C. I can't image trying to do that on the Harley Roadglide. Enjoy the ride and welcome to the world of Goldwing.

Welcome to the world of GWs! In my opinion, they are the ultimate riding machines! Not sure about the mods you are talking about, but I hope the bike works out well for you. Best wishes!

The best thing invented for long distance touring was the Honda Goldwing. The second best thing was motorcycle highway cruise control.
