Balance point wheelies now possible with Gold Wing?

The biggest benefit, it seems to me, is the ease with which one could perform wheelies (a feat rarely seen with Gold Wings). Rear overhang, however, appears to make reaching the balance point impossible.

I watched the video, and the driver must "push" the vehicle onto the trailer.

This is the most practical and useful thingie ever invented. I bet he would earn the gratitude, admiration (and a few bucks) from stranded 18-wheelers everywhere as he tows them to the nearest truck stop. Just think how much gas money you could save by towing your Caddy Escalade with your Moped instead of the other way around.

Mr. large legs

That's because I tow my semi behind my Schwinn 18 speed. Because of this I've developed an awesome ability, I can crack a dozen black walnut at a time between my butt cheeks. Nobody will eat them though. Next I'm going to try turning a chunk of coal into a 12 carat diamond.

It would be great in a panic stop. After you hit one car you could get ran over by your own.



Does it have an anchor you can drag behind on a long down grade?



Can you get it in chrome for a Harley?

I've seen this before, - in the "documentary-thingy" (tech. term) I saw, seems the only vehicles it can tow are Volvos. As those are a fav of clueless, no-can-pay-a-damn-bit-of-attention-to-anything-outside-the-car soccer-moms, I'd be adverse to using it at all.

It can be done. A lot of anal, unimaginative, small-weeny types tend to poo poo any idea thats new, but using a motorcycle as a tow vehicle, if necessary, is definitely possible.



One thing too, towing a motorcycle behind a vehicle, especially on one of those crossways carriers, is no piece of cake either.

Well sure you can use a motorcycle as a tow vehicle. you could also use heavy-lift helicopters or send it to the shop piece-by-piece via Federal Express... but, just because it can be done doesn't mean it should be done.



Gimme a break- it's a bad idea.

Re: Balance point wheelies now possible with Gold Wing?

I have, in fact, wheelied a Gold Wing myself. Albeit, it was an older GL1000 and I was carrying a passenger at the time.

I don't count wheelies with passengers. :)
