That is the only thing missing from the GoldWing. Forward controls would really be nice. escpecially as a mod for the older ones.

I'm not quite sure what you're suggesting.... Forward controls for what?

I think he means foot controls moved forward, gear shifting and brake pedal.

Exactly. Move the shifter and the rear brake pedal forward.

Then you would be into cruiser territory. I think that is more suited to actual cruisers than tourers.

Well...I think I could tour in a lot more comfort if I had the leg room of a cruiser.

I can't see this being possible with the flat cylinder engine layout. The aftermarket bars that bolt to the engine guards are already an awkward compromise.

They are possible alright. Maybe not specifically for the 'Wing, but they are available for the Valkyrie. I have a set on mine.





http://www.bigbikethings.com/ This crowd in New Zealand do them. Not too bad of a price either. Someone with a bit of ingenuity might be able to convert them for GoldWing use.

Never say never.

Ya know that set looks like it would work on an 1100 with only minor modification.
