What have you seen on a Goldwing?

My daughter sent me the following picture she took of a Goldwing in Coquitlam (Vancouver, BC area) this morning.



Possibly she was jealous that she couldn't do this with her BMW R1100S, but then maybe not.

So, what are some of the strangest things you've seen on a Goldwing, or other motorcycles for that matter?

It's no fun if you don't post pictures.

Fortunately, no one captured a photo of the Remington 12 gauge (boxed) that I bungee'd to the rear seat back rest one morning and took on a 70mile delivery run.

Of course, it might have gotten a few folks in Seattle a little wee-wee'd-up just by being visible.

This is what I had on my 1500 a few years ago. I road the cycle at lunch but didn't want to leave it at work.

Here Ya go...

Saw these a few years back and just had to take a photo...the canoe was in Virginia at a lake off the Blue Ridge. The Harley was at a rally in Alabama and it was his brothers that quit running, they worked on it for hours, then drank their fill and the next morning this was what we saw...sorry for the poor quality I didn't own a very good camera back then. But they are both for real..no photoshop here.

I just liked the recliner photo....it takes all kinds!!!

Yeah, me too. Brought my H&R 12 Gauge home the same way!

I strap my cased shotgun on the back seat and head to the trap range often. Seems normal to me. Of course when I brought home an unboxed Coleman cook stove on the back seat, I had a few people ask questions. I just told them that that was the only thing missing so I added it as an after market option.

I once carried a motorcycle lift (one of the ATV lift-types) home on the back of my '81 GL1100.....from north of Dallas to south of Houston, TX.

Got some looks.

Enjoying the ride,
