It was to slowly ease into the project so other members could follow it from early stage and maybe start suggesting things for the main and more important areas of the design later.
Also, I didn't want to expend too much time and effort starting on a main component like (for instance) the fairing, only to find we didn't have any CG people here capable or willing to turn the concept drawings into models.

Yes that will be the effect of ortho view and my coarse style of initial concept drawing. I expect a rendered model to look more like what I have in mind.

Castors came to mind at first, until the finished realistic pictures were posted. It looks much better with the colours and reflections.

Seriously though, we should take the opportunity to get in early with suggestions. There is little point sitting on the sidelines and then griping about the result. This is an ideal opportunity to have our ideas of a Goldwing design turned into something we can actually see.

Ed, when you decide what part of the concept Goldwing is next, please let us know and give us a few days to suggestion changes to your drawings. I would have liked to make other suggestions for the wheel but things started rolling before I had a chance to think about it.

While I think of it, perhaps change the title of the thread to include"concept."

How about just eliminating the forks? We know they are alternative designs and I'm NOT thinking of old school Harley types.
There is more efficient front suspensions available. Of course the big issue is letting go of the accepted "norms" of what a bike should look like, change it too much people will be afraid of it.

Good idea. I like the overall idea of designing the Wing, but unfortunately I lack the imagination for it. But I will follow the thread.

Good suggestion. Can you make a drawing of forks you have in mind so we have an idea where it is going?
