Travel ready - yes a GT with armrests!
So my son (9 years old) and I are planning a mid-summer trip from the east coast to the midwest via Canada. About a 4000 mile round trip with no time limits.
He was concerned about having to "hold on" the whole time - wished we had armrests like the Goldwings do. This is my rendition of them. The brackets attach with small spacers to the outside screws that hold the cover for the rear rack. Plenty of room under there. They both pivot and the arm rests come right off with the two big thumb screws. The brackets can be removed as well, in under two minutes. Covered them with some memory foam and material to match the seat.
Figured while I was back there I might as well install a steel bracket for the magnetic CB antenna. In under two minutes you can remove the bracket, dissasemble the antenna, and the whole thing will store right under the passenger seat.
If you look close at the cockpit picture you can see the tiny LED block right between the speedo and tac. They are also located under the Radar mount (shines in glove box) as well as under both sides of the frame and under the rear top box mount. They can be turned on by holding down a press button momentary switch on the left edge of the dash (anytime) or switched on with a toggle switch once the ignition is turned on.
This allows me to walk up to the bike and press down on the momentary switch so I can find the ignition switch, and once I've got the key in I can switch the toggle on and get full perimeter lighting around the bike (it gets really dark where I live!)
Just a few ideas I thought I'd share with you guys in case they're helpfull.
