Hi DBohrerSaddlebag and trunk lights were not installed on 1988 - 2000 Gold Wing's at the assembly plant.
Honda did have saddlebag lights (see attached) that could be installed by owners.
There were a couple aftermarket companies that made saddlebag and trunk lights that could be installed by owners.
Thanks for that information. I really didn't know this. I'm just wondering why these should illuminate on their own when the ignition key is turned to it's first position. Is this correct I ask myself or incorrectly wired into the loom? Something else I just want to check at this stage
