After a considerable amount of time spent looking for something online, sometimes you just have to assume that it hasn't been invented yet. For me, it would be antenna balls that are highly light reflective. I can't help but think that something that reflects light and is in motion on the bike, would make you considerably more visible.
Do any of you have things you think would be a welcome addition to your bike that you haven't been able to find?

Sandy, try a truck stop. Look in the CB and chrome section. They used to carry lighted antenna accessories for all the Over the road boys.

A compact pneumatic jack to raise the "wing" back upright when dropped. Kind of Murphy's law in reverse: If you have it you'll never need it.

A Green Wing.............................

As the Peak Oil phenomenon makes itself increasingly felt, I hope that Honda engineers are hard at work developing us a hybrid or diesel Wing. 35mpg in a two wheel mode is no longer tolerable......

I'm no Hippy, nor a Greenpeacie, or anything like that, but I've already curtailed my Wing travel some. I now have a 46-47 mpg Nighthawk for local and routine trips.

My next step down will be in the 500-400 cc range, and I've even give the Ninja 250 a looksee........

If I have to, I'll ride a moped to keep on riding, but I think it is within the capabilities of today's techs and engineers to keep the essense of the Goldwing and double it's mpg range!

I already have that on my 1100. It came as a feature of the alarm I installed.

Forward controls for a 1500 gw(even though they probably wouldn't feel right with the wide engine)--but as far forward as they can get would be better without going on the outside of the valve covers.

And floorboards that have springyness to them-similar to harley stock floorboards.

How about a hybrid gw? It would be nice to get 50-75-?mpg on a wing.

Oh yeah, I'd go for one of those too. :dude:

As long as we're wishing, a light weight riding suit that is capable of protecting your hide if you go down, lets lots of air flow to keep you cool in the summer and a built in cooling vest for real hot days, rain proof when needed, and warm in the winter. :goofygrin:
