I wonder how long before we have to wait before Honda fit a battery/alternator warning light to the Goldwing? Come on engineers, it's only a little request!

Good idea, basic request really and it would only cost a few cents extra.

Honda really should have the light on the dash. The Goldwing is so based on autmotive technology that it would be real easy to do and there is plenty space in the dash for a light.

BackOFF heads Up voltage monitor - a LED that has 5 states depending on the voltage - turns from grn to yellow to red and blinks depending on the voltage of your battery. Bought mine for $26.95.
