Finally got our Honda Goldwing!
Now we want to take both of them with us on our travels.
Any suggestions?

The best way to handle this problem I found is for me to meet you and take the Gold Wing. I will lead you and when we get to your destination then we will switch and I will let you ride the Wing while I take the coach.

Works for me every time. How About It?

This is the one I'm planning on using:

Hydralift

I like this one over most of the others for 2 main reasons. It lifts the motorcycle higher than most and this allows the toad to be towed closer to the MH so that overall lenght can be kept short as possible. Additionally, I've heard but not confirmed, that there is a cover, possibly plastic, available for the motorcycle. If that is the case that should help keep the bike cleaner.

Boy am I jealous! My wife and I both have Goldwings and have yet to take them with us when we travel in the MH. We either travel with the MH pulling a Saturn Vue or on the Wings pulling a Timeout Popup Camping Trailer. We both logged 30,000+ miles last year on the Wings and had a blast as we traveled from Key West to Toronto and as far west as St. Louis. I would love to take the Vue and both Wings, but the combined weight is too much for my W22 chassis. It would certainly be easier if we only had one Wing, but the DW won't have any part of that! Our next rig will be a DP and we plan to have a trailer built that will accommodate both Wings up front and the Vue behind them.

Good Luck and Ride Safe!!!

Bob

Well, I just hate reading threads like this. I have a 2002 GW, a Honda Helix 250cc scooter, and now a new-to-me 2000 Miata. I'm single and quite alone all the time, but I still want to have all of them all the time.

I purchased a scooter lift for the back of my 1987 30' Holiday Rambler MH, which works swimmingly. And in the next couple of days I will be afixing the Miata and MH with Roadmaster towing equipment for the car.

For me, it's going to have to be a painful coin toss for the rest of this year. Then after that, I retire, hit the road full-time, and... poo, what do I do then?

I also have a 2000 Mercedes E320 which I need to find some disposition for. Frankly, I'm having pre-partum anxiety issues over the thoughs of having to get rid of any of them. I'm not such a "keeper" or stingy, just attached.

Oh, the suffering of it all.
