Re: Safety Wheels for the K1200LT
I hadn't read your posts before opening up the attachment. When I saw it, I hollered at my wife, and said, "Hey, I found what you can get me for my 75th birthday".
I think it's awesome.
Related story: I was fueling up a couple of years ago, and saw a really old looking fella come in to the station on a Goldwing. He had a landing gear system ( I believe they used to call it "landing gear for the mother ship?). Anyway, he rolls to a stop with the gear down, takes his gas cap off but drops it. He spent, swear to God, at least 3 minutes trying to chase it down (it went about 3' away) and pick it up. Remember how Tim Conway used to walk his old man walk-shuffle? I'm thinking, holy crap, this ain't good. Anyway, he fuels up, takes off, and just like in the video, hits the highway, raises the gear, and away he went, smooth as can be.
I think it was GREAT to see him still riding.
