Hello all! Since this seems to be THE place for goldwing info, I am hoping for some help! My husband has a birthday coming up in a couple of weeks, and I am out of gift ideas...any suggestions? He loves to ride (as do I) and has many of the accessories, apparel, etc. I was hoping for some suggestions for gifts that any Goldwing enthusiast would enjoy. Thanks for the help!

Price range??

Perhaps a general list of what he already has so the folks here can help you add to it.

Welcome Goldwinghoney to the forum, you have come to the right place. How about a new summer jacket as we are coming into spring finally, or how about oil filters, you can always use them and oil of course. Or even a gift certificate to his favorite parts store. So many things.

How about a weekend at a bed and breakfast at your favorite place, surprise him. Taking the bike of course.

Hello and Welcome . I hope we can give you some ideas . MMMMaybe a Goldwing vacation to Montrose CO with a group of us in Sept ?
( 2009 NASSIR Meet n Greet Forum )
Of course we expect you as well . Ok so thats going a bit far for just finding us here . Most of us enjoy some extra CHROME . (Saftey Chrome its known by here ) Perhpas a new set of Michilen tires for the 1500 . You say he has apparel already . Can you add to that ? Leather of textile saftey clothing . Additional lighting such as the ring of fire lamps for the front wheel ?

I guess I am rambling along here . I hope you do get some ideas though. We are happy to have you and hope you and your husband both will visit us at this forumand hope you enjoy the Steve Saunders family . The mrs and myself went close by Sweetwater last Sept. You live in some wonderful riding country there.

NASR 10 Good times!

Welcome GoldwingHoney,

Nothing says romantic giftlike a bottle of "Flame Broil Cologne" from Burger King. But since you wanted to stay with the Goldwing theme, a gift certificate at Babbits or Cyclemax, or other good Goldwing aftermarket supplier would be a good thing. You do not have to worry about buying the wrong size, model, or fragrance with a gift certificate. I hopehe enjoys his birthday.

Welcome! I figure if he already has a wife who enjoys riding with him, anything else would just be icing on his birthday cake.

Without more info concerning his likes / dislikes, what he already has and his own personal "wish list," a gift certificate and a gremlin bell are probably the best way to go.

I have to go with the gift certificate, my fiancee got one for me for a nice amount and I was able to get some things that I really wanted.

Just because you\'re a paranoid doesn\'t mean they\'re not out to get you.
