  • Like a whole new bike

    Finally got to put a few hundred miles on the Roadstar this week. I put a Daymaker LED headlight with LED passing lamps as well. Sure brightened up the morning ride. Changes out the worn out Dunlops for some Commander 2’s and installed the roadwing shock that has been sitting in my shop for the past year. Handling is night and day difference. Thanks to all who helped me spend some money during the off season so I could have the smiles today.

      As am I. I still need to address the front suspension but that will be another day.

        Yep, it's amazing what a Goldwing and good rubber can do to the R*. ...And just my $.02 but as someone who's run:

        - Progressive springs alone and 10w fork oil
        - Race Tech springs alone with 12w fork oil
        - Race Tech springs and Gold Emulators with 15w fork oil

        If I had to do it all over again, I'd go with the Progressive springs and 10w fork oil. Given the cost and amount of work evolved with installing and tuning the Gold Emulators, it's just not worth it. The only time the Progressive springs fell short were on back road high speed sweepers going 60+ mph.

          P.S. I've yet to try the Emulators on back road sweepers at 60+ mph, so I can't say if they're any different.
