Congrats on your new Wing and welcome to the forum from the Keystone state. Sounds a lot like me last year. Traded my 98 GL1500 for a 09 GL1800. You are going to love the GL1800. Now time to "farkle" the new one. Enjoy the forum and ride safe..
At ease! What size flag are you intending to fly ? Most of the poles I've seen on WingStuff have the option choice between round or flat style luggage racks. Damn it! You mean to tell me that there are thousands of Goldwings out there with Kury flat rail style luggage racks flying their colors except yours ? Enclosed is a picture of a Polacks version of a flag pole. Semper Smiles. P.S. Your flying the American flag you say ? Last time I checked the Marine Corps flag was American, one flag says it all.
