I've just read on the riders board that Road Trip Essentials have gone out of business. These were a couple who supplied colour-matched parts for the GL1800 (lower exhaust covers, meter panels, fender extensions, bar-end weights, most Kury parts etc.).

They were the best at what they did, took pride in their work and very nice to do business with. I have bought from them a couple of times and was very happy.

So much for the recovering economy and I'm gutted to hear this news.

It is a real shame. They did fantastic work and they are very nice folks.

Can we say measure 66/67? Stupid sheeple in the "cities" vote for "feces" like those 2 measures.

This really sucks!!! I have been saving to buy some color matched parts this winter. Looks like I'm SOL now. I can't seem to find anybody else that I can buy from. Everybody seem to want Chrome. Yuck!!

It\'s not the destination but how many twisties you can find along the way.
