Do we have a 'Pay it Forward' program here? I was active on the VTXOA site before buying my Wing and we had a GREAT 'Pay it forward' thing going there. If you have something laying around unused, you can offer it to anyone who might need it. Pay it forward items are sent free, or on a 'just pay postage' basis.
Also it is NOT intended to be a "I need this part" forum. That is what the other 'For sale' and 'Wanted' threads are for. The Pay it Forward
threads at VTXOA were a source for many people to find something obscure, or that the dealer wants a fortune for. (Exhaust gaskets on VTX's for example are about $10 EACH. Some members had aftermarket extras to give.) Little items sometimes, like special screws, reflectors, footpegs were always in demand. The program also made and cemented some real, long-term friendships and a sense of comraderie on the site!!! For whatever reason, real or imagined, Goldwing sites and clubs are seen by others as snobbish, unfriendly???? Lets show 'em what Brotherhood is all about !!! I will have extra stock parts to give away in the near future once I start putting on accessories.
What say ye???

Sure. Why not. For you 1800 riders I have a brand new set of " Grip Puppies " TYPE foam grip overlays. These foam grips are thicker than the Grip Puppies brand so if your " hand " enough you should enjoy the extra thick grip feel. I've had Grip Puppies and they were fine, but these extra thick ones come in real handy for me.

Pay it Forward

CHOPIN,
6'5"...my hands are *slightly* larger than the stock grips. If they work with the heater, I'd like a shot at them, but feel awkward in asking, since I don't have anything to offer yet!!!! Got a VTX stock 'BILLBOARD' style license plate assy.....Items *should* be GW related, but I suppose a gift is a gift.

They work with heated grips. They are just porous foam. You still using the skinny stock grips ? Post a picture of your bike for verification. I don't need anything in return. I'm paying it forward. If I got something from you that would be an exchange. Now SHOW ME THE PICTURE!

They are yours. Soak them in a pan of water for a bit and rub some dish soap on the inside forward portion that you're about to slip over the grips. Don't coat the whole interior with soap.When the grips get warm the soap will soften, so the less soap you have to use the better. Wrap a rag around it for a better grip and twist/ push/ twist /push grunt, grunt, twist/ push.

Thank you USPS! Going " Postal " usually has a negative connotation. If I had a hundred pairs of these I would carry them around with me and every time I saw a naked pair of grips I would cover them with these.

Bump - ANYBODY ???
Your pique my curiosity. I'm actually in the market for a flag holder, hence the reason my wife bought the trunk rack.My wife wants to fly the " Don't Tread On Me ", I said the bike will not be used for political reasons. I would like to fly a USMC flag and I was wondering if your flag clips are specific to the flags or they can be transferred to another ?

I'll take them! I'm avoiding buying the trunk rack mount flag holders because I don't have a garage so my bike needs to sit under the cover as weather dictates. The truck rack version will require removal of the flag and /or the bracket to get the cover on safely. I'll will probably buy one anyway but for daily use having one that can fold down with the antenna will make a quick and painless cover session. Besides, the white one matches my bike. Still have my addy from the grip shipment ?
