I agree with the making the key FOB into just the key, like some cage manufactures have done.

Sheesh! What's this world coming to? Motorcycles with remotes. Makes me wonder how I managed to survive most of my life driving cars without remotes.

As for opening the trunk with the remote whilst the engine is running, that's a bad thing. My Roadmonster (my first car with a remote) will open the back glass with the remote while the engine is running and sometimes that happens by accident. Can you imagine that happening on your Wing and having all of your underwear scatter on I-95?
Scout Guy,


I don't think I could get by without my TV remote, my cell phone, garage door opener. Although, I think we were better off whenthose things did insist.

I found it saves my marriage, on a daily basis. Each morning my wife rushes out the door, leaving me to lock the house door. Simultaneously she is rushing to put her purse in the trunk as I am locking the door. Thank goodness for the trunk remote on the bike, I wouldn't have a place to put my helmet otherwise, she'd chew my head off!

I still haven't figured out the lock and unlock feature on the bike. It unlocks the handles for the trunk and the saddlebags - temporarily, but what does it lock?

The remote only locks and unlocks the trunk. The button with the little picture of a Gold Wing on it is a quick release for the trunk lid.

The narrow Red button is a find it button in case you forgot where you parked it. Push it and the horn beeps.

The manual lock can also be used to lock and unlock the trunk lid with the key.

But it only seems to temporarily lock and unlock the trunk... true?

I guess you could consider it being temporarily locked. If you lock it with the remote or with the key, nobody else can open the trunk with the manual latches.

If you locked the trunk with the remote before going to bed, it should still be lock the next morning.

I had a bit of a problem figuring mine out when I first got my '06 1800. I would unlock the trunk with the remote and I would return to the truck to get something out of it and it would be lock. I would have to use the remote or the key to unlock it again.

Would it be possible to get a re-programable remote with built in key , such as for a Honda Civic I guess, and have the key cut to match the Goldwing one?

Hi everyone. This is mu first post. I would agree that it would be great if the remote opened the side bags also. Has anyone had the latch malfunction?
