Default Re: Now a cooling compressor isn't a bad idea

Back in the Apollo days, an outfit in Ohio made cooling suits for astronauts. There were a bunch of tubes, it looked quite a lot like the chain mail they wear in those middle ages hack and gouge movies. For astronaut use, they just evaporated water into space. With a Gold Wing, you'd plug into the compressor fittings (right next to the auxiliary electric outlet).



Having ridden in Phoenix in mid summer, I'd like to have something like that. In fact, I'd like it enough to leave the BMW at home and rent a Wing for the occasion.

Default Re: Huge tourers

Are you in Colorado? I was up the last weekend in August because of the weather, and I did see a dozen Wings for every BMW. I think it's common for Wingers to plan their CO trip in August. At the end of September, I'll go up thru Utah for a long weekend. Freddie Spencer school in Nov. After that, I'll start focusing on California. A lot of Wings roll 10,000 to 20,000 miles a year. (admittedly a lot of those are social miles.)



Not that I've got anything against BMW's; I'll get a GS in 06 for city/shorter/dirty/lighter touring duty.

Default S2000 is the pig

Holy smokes! That thing looks like a giant white butt in the rider's face. I'm sure that the device will be all kinds of helpful in a crash, but man did I do a double-take when I saw that picture.

Why do sporties scoff at Touries...You said "it feels like half a Civic (and costs as much...). Thats the point.



Although I do agree with you...If that does it for you...who am I to question that ?

When's the last time the airbag in your car went off from hitting a "road irregularity".



I know you're just trying to make a point, but instead you're just sounding rediculous

It doesn't make sense to compare the Wing to the entire line of BMW cycles. If you want to be more accurate, compare the wing to the LT. How many LT's do you see around...anywhere? Right!
