I would gladly give up the tupperware! Make the panels like racing equipment. Zeuss fasteners or something. I like the enduro style panels. One or two pieces cover the needed areas. Someone who has,say a 1500 torn down, actually WIEGH the tupperware and see how heavy it really is! Makes Maint. a hassle sometimes. Rant over! jimsjinx

now dont get me wrong im a plain meat and potatoes kinda guy

air bags show some intrest for saftey at lower speeds i would probably buy them on the bike heck the insurance would be cheaper

but as far as navigation computer gps crap in my humble opinion i wont buy a bike with all that garbage on it or a 10cd disk changer thats just retarted in my opinoin

the less stuff to confuse ya the better half the guys i know that have 1800's dont even know what half the switches and do-dads do

What would I give up??? That's easy.....it would be my wife because if I went out and spend $30K+ on a new motorcycle, she'd be gone like a freight train! Left, outta here, buh bye!

I like my wife, I think I'll hold on to what I got........Goldwing and the wife!!

I have a 2010 XM/Navi which we bought very spontaneously. I was hoping to get a 1500 next year, but circumstances were just right, the planets aligned and voila! we are on an 1800. My son calls it a yacht scooter! I have to agree that there are just too many controls and the keyfob? Why? Bike also did not come with a 12 volt power outlet. (how you going to plug in the espresso machine?) If dealer had had a 2010 1800 standard I would have bought it. We like the XM but for now, the Navi and CB are just unused buttons and parts that are taking up space..

There's a lot of guys out there crying over not getting the CB who thought they would never need it. It is helpful if you ever ride with others.

I find that not having one gives the others someone to talk about...
