      Looks great so far. When can we expect to see running boards?

      Also, what modifications does the front end require? (Rake kit?)

      Are you offering the aux fuel tank as an option on the kit for the 2018 Goldwing?

      What an eye catcher.

      I love the smooth flowing lines.

      Oh yeah, RS has been hard at work, they've done a good job, I like it better than the CSC, love the fender design, great integration profile. Gotta read more about it, when that's available.

      Thanks MHGoldwing: We are planning on running boards - ones you can stand on if you really want to. We'll post pics once they are complete. For the front end, we are replacing the entire lower fork assembly with one that reduces trail. Quite a bit more extensive than traditional rake kits, but it will do the job. We have tooling and casting complete on the new fork, just working on the final machining steps.

      Yes, for sure we are going to offer the auxilary fuel cell. 5-gallon roto-mold tank.

      I love what you are doing with the new model. I am in the market for a new trike and at the point of deciding on a new 2017 of wait on the 2018-19 version. The idea of the automatic is appealing as I get older. Great Job Road Smith and I look forward to seeing the completed version!

      Attachment 62313Beauitful job Roadsmith, great job, looks like a winner

      But.........I would need to get one with a little "paazz".

      Meaning, I would have to get one with "two-tone" paint, which I'm sure with

      some creatively by the installer who has a friend in the auto body business could arrange.

      Holy Christmas, I like it very much, the seat looks more comfortable, narrow at the front get it done. I like the redesigned fenders, bigger trunk door, wing guards, neat all around. Be glad to see the rider reports.

      I love it.........Glad to see that, cause when I'm ready for my second trike a bike will be waiting for me...I think it looks great, love the lines, BUT mine will need a running board, underneath......"I just love my Roadsmith"

    By chance have you called R/S? You should still be under warranty. Have you pulled the pads to see what they and the rotors look like?

    Rear Brakes squealing Loudly

    Brake squeal is a harmonic, it can be caused by pad vibration and guide pin corrosion

    Clean and lube pad pins, and clean ALL mating surfaces

    Rear Brakes squealing Loudly

    Use emery cloth in a cross hatch pattern on both sides of your rotors.

    If you have metallic brake pads, I would change to organic.

    You need to jack up the right rear wheel and put in neutral. Rotate the wheel until the zerk(s) are accessible.

    If the master cylinder is not transferring fluid, it wouldn't matter if you filled from the bleeder, it still wouldn't
