Probably come late August early September I'll be wishing for rain and lower temps to.

When on the road ya just ride. I have left my house many times in the rain because I wanted to ride and have a full Vetter on.To me is not to be scared of the rain but just be extra careful and have good tires:) Experience pays off :)

Put on the Frogg Toggs and ride on!

Oh yeah, a car tire on the back of the bike helps with handling too.

I'll pass on riding in the rain. I spent 35 years working in whatever mother nature threw at me (besides hurricanes and tornadoes) not anymore.:cool: You all can call me a pussy if you want I can take it.:bliss

The rear wheel on a 1200 GoldWing is 150/90-15. That tire is a 165-80R 15. I hope to get more than 20k miles out of it. I am putting a 1200 drive train on my 1100 so I can do the same thing with that bike too.

I traded a 1984 goldwing in on this CB1100. The 84 was getting to heavy for me to wrestle around.

When you have a 1200 that's been put on a diet, it is a little easier to wrestle around.

Nice bike Brian. A fella here has a 84 factory original naked goldwing that he literally found in a barn. It had less than 3500 miles. the dude sold it to him for 2,000 dollars. I wish I had that kind of luck.

Anyway I don't have many pictures of my bike due to a house fire. Here is a couple. I used the bike as a transporter for my RC stuff. I carried a 2000 watt generator, battery charging station, tools and 2 helicopters. The smaller heli fit in the trunk. The larger one sat on the false tank, tail on dash above the gauges, the nose between my legs.
I had a 40 mile round trip to the RC field.

I am sure the RC heli on the faux tank got a few looks as you were riding down the road...

I bought my 84 Standard in 2014. It had 7,100 miles on the dial and I paid $2600 for it. Since then I've put another 8,000 miles on it. I try to do most of my riding on my 81 1100, but I am currently working on it. I am putting a 1200 motor with a single carb, 1200 swingarm, and 1200 rear wheel with a car tire on it.

Yes it did get a lot of double takes. So did the 6 foot inflatable pontoon boat that I tied on the bike to go fish the high lakes in the summer.
