I thought about a mud flap. However, my 1500 had one and all of my flats on that bike were one the rear tire. Also, my 4-wheeled vehicle has them - similar to your photos - and the only flat I've had so far was on the rear!

The mud flap goes in front of the REAR tire. Takes a little fabricating to mount it, I think he mounted it between the center stand and the rear wheel but I'm not sure how he did it. I don't have my 1800 anymore so I can't really you how he did it

Scroll down to the riding style and click on tourer or cruiser. Neither of these bring up the G709 or G704.

If you scroll down to the tire category and select touring the G709 and G704 both show up. Seems strange that they don't recommend the tires for touring riding style. Clicking on the links for G709 and G704, they both say they are for a Honda GL1800.

So the website confirms what the rep said that the Exedra G709 and G704 were designed for the Honda GL1800. They are listed as touring tires, but are not recommended for the touring riding style. https://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums...icons/ROFL.gif

I re-checked my 4-wheeled Toyota and discovered it has those little mud flaps in front of BOTH front and rear tires. However, I suspect it is more of a mud minimization effort than a flat minimization attempt...
