Hi Folks... been awhile since l have visited here.I have developed a disability due to an accident at home. I still want to ride but it seems l will have to convert my 1982 Gold wing to a trike.I would like suggestions that will not make me poor but enable my long love of riding again... any suggestions would be welcome

Check into adding a tow pac to your wing. It will make it a trike without the expensive cost.

The last time I checked the Towpac website they weren't making one for the 1200 or 1100's. Did you ask about 1100's specifically?

If you can't find a Towpac to fit or that can be modified then maybe a sidecar will do the trick for ya.

Reverse is way overrated. It is not really necessary so long as you watch the way you park. I think I have used mine twice, and once was just to try it out.

l talked to Denny, the owner of that site and he said you would be surprised how easy it is to back your bike up with the Tow pac on. He also said you have to remember to leave the bike in low gear when you park it as the bike will then be so free wheeling that it could walk away on ya. You can back the bike up the norm way by foot pedalling backwards but now there is no balance to be concerned with, or, if oyu are in an awkward spot, you can get off the bike and grab the front forks and gently push the unit backwards and steer using the front forks.



l did order a Tow pac from him and am looking forward to getting it here in Canada. No hurry now as it is winter so l can take my time. He did say it takes lees than an hour to install as well. Plus there is a discount on right now till the end of the month.. Money is money right.. lol
