No, forum members like you suggest the way it looks so keep it coming. Concept Guy will use the members feedback to make sketches,, and i will do the CG work based on those drawings..

as for the wheel, i am guessing it wouldnt need to be much heavier than on the 1800. the chrome covers would probably be plastic and just puffed out to make space for the ally fork/bracket,, and that could be lighter than traditional fork legs.

i think the fairing and bodywork are next.. that will be a biggie so we will need lots of input for that.

ahhh, 0K.

EXTERIOR SUGGESTIONS:
Make the faux tank wide like the wheel.
Has two hard and (maybe) lockable bins. Top accessible? Maybe tip to the side accessible?

Fairing and windshield sure could have that teardrop look. Wide in front to narrower rear then open space for humans and saddlebags completing the teardrop. Tho not to a point, that can be an accessory for aerodynamics and of coarse fuel mileage. (Eg: Craig Vetter's last fairing)
For that personal look to the (will be bland) fairing. Add-On ribs or panels?
(Dream/nightmare that one. LOL)

4 headlights. 2 normal HiLo beams and 2 for DRL's (Daytime Running Lights) Not understood why the 1500 Location Lights were not DRL's.

WOW, can't wait for first draft.

+1. That sounds reasonable. Front lights could sure make more efficient use of the large fairing.

Dylan and Concept Guy: While I like what you did with the front wheel, I think the fender is too low at the back. Maybe raise it a tad so it looks realistic and show off more of the rotor covers at the same time?

Is this any better?

Good observation Zeke. Dylan's tweak looks good to my eyes.

That's what it's all about FM, thanks. Let me mull over that for a couple of days and see what I can come up with.

Yes that's how we want it to work. Post suggestions and we will try to integrate them at least in part.

May be getting a little ahead of the game, who about a deep saddle,
9-10 inch back rest with a good bucket so as nolt to slide forward.
Also, some type of built in back and good arm rest for rider.

Just thought of another idea for the passenger, can that part be cut down so
the center of gravity will not be as much.

In my opinion the latest Goldwing design catches way too much side wind. This 2012 is my first wing. I am comparing it to a 1983 Yamaha Ventura Royale which when in strong cross winds was easy to handle and was not yanked around like my wing is. So my suggestion is to make the bike slippery to side winds as well.
