    Total and utter BS. But, believe whatever hair-brained ideas you wish. Might help with the nitrogen in your tires to make your deer whistles work better and the magnets give you 100 MPG.

    Most do not understand the difference between a "correlation" and "causation"

    Fact: everyone who has drank milk has died
    Conclusion: Milk Kills

    Same with EMF radiation

    The biggest cause of death worldwide is birth. If we could wipe out birth then death would soon be a thing of the past.

    I wonder if he's ever taken any readings inside his house? You are exposed to various levels of EMF right in your own home due to all the electrical wiring in the house. Same applies to office bldgs., etc.

    Default While we are on the subject.....

    Seriously boys, has anyone ever heard of ANY CORRELATION between bike riding and prostate issues? Ever experience frequent urination during the night after a day of many hours in the saddle? There has been some conversation concerning the association of bicycle riding with prostate cancer among the professional riding groups, something about the form of the seat. Just wondering...

    Everyone knows the leading cause of death is sex. A loooong time ago, my parents had sex and now I gotta die.

    Just out of curiosity, I forwarded a link to this thread to an Attorney friend of mine to see what he had to say. I figured if there were ANY validity to this claim at all that the Law profession would already be on top of it. There would be as many TV commercials for EMF attorneys as there are for mesothelioma attorneys. He checked in some of his Law Journals and could find nothing of significance about it.

    EMF comes form a number of sources which include household wiring, hair dryers, electric blankets, computers, television sets, microwave ovens and high voltage lines to name a few. Some of those sources have been around and in wide-spread use for many decades. He said that if large numbers of people were getting cancer that was directly traceable to EMF from electronic and electrical devices there would have already been lawsuits galore.

    His line of reasoning makes a lot of sense to me. He said, "calm down Chicken Little, the sky is not falling". So, I guess I can remove my tin foil undies now.

    I think some need a alumimun liner in their helment to keep Solar radiation off their brain.

    Got to remember this guy is trying sell his EMF commercial solution. EMP is everywhere...but certain high does is not good. When I managed multiple telecommunications facilities, HEMP (High-altitude Electromagnetic Pulse) hardened facilities were required, against nuclear blast. there is some truth to EMF or EMP dangers, but no medical evidence shown yet, that I can find that new bikes are the cause.

    I've been giving this some thought.

    Seats are heated by Direct Current so there is very little change in the magnetic field they put out..... shoots that one down
    ABS controller is located back just above the rear wheel..... a little far away and very low powered ...... shoots that down also
    Engine Controller ... again not located under the seat.
    Fuel Pump... ok getting closer....Most motors are highly shielded not to prevent EMF but to keep the magnetic fields inside so they operate better.
    Altenator....Same as the fuel pump, designed to keep the fields inside.
    Spark Plugs .. Now there is a high EMF generations system ... but since they have been around long before the goldwing came out that kind of eliminates them.

    Hmmmm How about long hours of sitting on the seats, this would seem to be somewhat related, low blood flow in the buttocks, cramped positioning of the testicles.

    I think we might have hit on a winner here... Conclusion --- get off you A$$ every couple of hours and move around, wear the right kind of underwear and clothing.

    Just might prevent damage to the boys and keep you from getting so heavy!!

    I stole my wife's roll of tinfoil out of the kitchen and sneaked it into the shop, I am all good..........
    " The GL1800 " A grand motorcycle it is. For touring,fun and to see the world there is no other like it. Big and powerful and comfortable for those cross country rides. Also perhaps the very ultimate ambassador to itself and to those who ride it and meet new friends at the many meets and activities this machine brings to the equation.

    No need to worry about the bike....I would worry more about the Gerbings and other electric gear that we encase our bodies in for those winter rides

    I'm more afraid of Bluestreek-02's bug infecting my computer than I am of this radiation nonsense from my motorcycles . They both seem to make want to scratch certain places.

    As a schooled electrician we learned about counter EMF, it opposes EMF at 97 percent.

    If anyone ever figures out how to eliminate it your ass will be fried.

    Just to add some fuel to a dying fire - think about the noise that comes through your headsets from the alternator. There can be a LOT of noise on bikes and cars. And even if it is DC it is still a rotaitonal force and can create pulses. How many volts are passed through a spark plug?

    Some guys are just natural-born "numb-nuts". Take the V.P. of manufacturing at my work, for instance...a Harley owner too, and a real live example of "numb nuts" I think it has some kind of an effect on his brain too. Whattaputz! Must be the ignition coils and wires running so close to the seat. With the GW, that shouldn't be a problem.
