My personal attempt at HID headlights. January, 2009.
Time for an aftermarket seat. April, 2010.
Heading home from vacation, broken throttle cable. November, 2010.
(One paragraph was edited and the article published without my knowledge. The original paragraph appears here):
At this point I had come to the “business end” of the throttle cables. The factory service manual is woefully lacking on information concerning the whole system, what lay before me included a rounded box that houses a cruise control disable switch that kicks in if you twist the throttle backwards when the cruise is active. Rude awakening time…THERE IS NO WAY TO USE THE RETURN CABLE AS A PULL CABLE!!! It was then that I discovered something very unexpected, a mechanical idle speed adjustment. I increased the idle to 2500 RPM and “slapped” the bike back together throwing some of it in the trailer. With this increase in the idle speed I figured we could shift through the gears and get the speed of our Wing up to the minimum needed to accelerate with the cruise control.
Upgrading the high beams to HIDs. January, 2011.
They made a writer out of me! June, 2011.
Product review updates and future articles. January, 2013
Note: I commented about how these upgrades did not help reduce the impact Lyn feels in her back when we hit bumps. Some readers mistakenly took this as a negative which was never intended. The real issue is with her back not the bike or suspension. If we were to buy a new Wing, without hesitation, both of us would want the entire Traxxion package installed on it!
My resignation. Shortly after the Traxxion Dynamics review was submitted I resigned from Wing World Magazine for personal reasons.
Time to return, March 2015. I have decided it is time to open discussions with GWRRA & Wing World Magazine about my submitting articles once again.
First new submission, April 2015. I have submitted the second “Reports Past & Future”. My plan is to review my reports annually going forward. This includes the next product review, a Shorai Lithium-Ion battery will be tested in our Wing. http://shoraipower.com/
