I got my first Goldwing October 2004.Super clean 1981 GL1100 I love it.I recently went to a rally and was told it has a very rare faring on it.I person told me it was called a Califea its very different thn any ive ever seen in my 50 years of biking.The bags match and they have BATES stickers in them.He told me they were only made a year or two.Do I hear any input on this.Please help...Thanks
PS;I also have a 1972 CB750 four old schoo; chopper 19K on it I got it in 1975 Its super clean.I love to ride it but me back wont let me ride far soooo thats why I got the WING.

Hey "Me" sure like that bike, really clean looking!

Never have seen a fairing like that, but it looks great!

Brojees, that thing in back looks like a "PA loud speaker"?! But it might be a "Deer Alert" ?!:baffled::goofygrin:

rear facing missile launcher, for tailgaters, I like it:clapper::clapper::goofygrin:

Lovely looking bike, oldwingrider49, never seen a fairing like that on this side of the pond, nice to have something a bit different, in the world of Wings.:cooler:

Isnt a "Deer alert" really a "Dear Alert"? You know, when your wife wants you to do something, and you figger it out before she gets "Dear..." out of her mouth?

We've had pictures of a similar fairing on the forum before. I wish I could remember the name. You want to wait a little longer after hitting send, if you wait a full minute after the first 'send' click before you try it again there's less chance of getting a bunch of duplicates.

So as to the fairing and how it works... Have you ridden a vetter or honda fairing? Does this one work as well? Better? The shape is so different...

The faring looks good on the wing, but it looks goofy on the bmw.:baffled:
