NoGoldwing is perfect, but what have you added (or removed) to make it better?

This can cover a lot of different types of personalizing to your bike, from adding Chrome, improving MPG, improving your Brakes, or adding electronicsand heads-up display. (has anyone mounteda movie camera?)

I realize there is probably a section devoted to this subject, but after searching I found only just a few Ideas.

Corbin Seats seem to be a favorite upgrade.

Also, it would be interesting to see what each of us feel are the essentials topack and how they load their Goldwings for a three day week-end trip.

Two totally different subjects wrapped into one post. Feel free to expand on this post.

Dave... It seems Miles are the BEST optional Add-on so far. 39,000 Miles is quite an add-on for your first year and a few... :)

Correct my friend, adding me to the seat was a good mod and adding miles makes me and the wing happy.

I removed my wife and now my wing is faster more responsive and quieter. No chatter from the rear and no need to stop every 45 min for a bathroom break.

Best thing i took off of my wing yet.
