Murder Out Your Gold Wing

For many many moons now, owners of the famed Gold Wing and it’s recent “Custom” Step-Child The F6B, have not had a way to come to The Dark Side. K and G Cycles has found a manufacturer that has created a Smoke Accessory Package that lets you create the perfect Gold Wing F6B. A Limited Edition offering of 9 accessories that accentuate the F6B’s dark lines by turning the standard chrome finish into a Smoke finish.

  The unique dark plated finish gives an illusive feeling to the chrome that adds depth and definition. Depending on the amount of available light, the Smoke look will often take on a chameleon-like effect. Its dark mirror finish is the perfect accent to the F6B and its sinister blacked out design. The Dark Smoke Package is  available in a dress out package of 9 of what are considered to be the must have pieces for the F6B / GL1800. Only this time they are finished in the illusive Smoke finish:

Smoke-Kit-BBP-SPL52816SK11) Pair of Smoke Board Covers

2) Pair of Smoke Engine Covers

3) Pair of Smoke LED Saddlebag Accents

4) Pair of Smoke Battery Covers

5) Pair of Smoke Frame Covers

6) Pair of Smoke Garnish Accents

7) Pair of Smoke Fender Fillers

8) Smoke Front Fender Extension

9) Smoke LED Rear Fender Accent

    With the F6B starting out as a great “Dark” platform, it is no surprise someone has come up with a package to finish what the factory started. For those of you that are still on the fence, there is no time to dawdle. This is a Limited Edition Smoke Dress Package and is expected to be available in limited quantities. For those GL1800 owners (2012 and newer) the Smoke Accessory Group for the F6B also fits your motorcycle. With Father’s Day quickly approaching this would make the perfect for Dad and because of its limited quantity, not everyone will have it. K and G Cycles is always looking to bring you the latest in motorcycle accessories so you can have a bike like no other.

Instant Protection From The Weather

Can you even begin to count the times you have ridden somewhere, parked your bike, only to come back and scorch your buns? How many times have you detailed your bike, gone to dinner, had to park under a tree and come back to dreadful results? There is a solution to these problems and it can be found at K and G Cycles, The Cycle Shade Motorcycle Cover.

goldwing cycle shade   The manufacturer of Cycle Shade saw a need to address common concerns felt by the motorcycle community. Protecting your bike from sun damage, moisture, morning dew, bird droppings and tree sap is a constant battle. Sure you could carry a full size cover with you, but that is bulky and takes up a lot of storage space. Not to mentions the time it takes to install it, especially if it doesn’t have the heat panels on it. Engineered to deliver the protection you want in the most convenient package available. Take a look at these features:

*Engineered for easy on/easy off applications. Cycle Shade can be installed or removed in a very short time.

*Can be installed immediately after riding. Because no part of Cycle Shade touches any part of the motorcycle that is hot, there is no wait time for installation.

*Stows in its own attached pouch. There is no special way to insert the Cycle Shade into the bag, you just stuff it and go!

*By selecting a high quality lightweight polyester material, a happy coincidence is its water resistant capability. This is great when having to park your bike outside. The morning  dew and moderate rains showers will not harm your bike.

*Keeping simplicity at the forefront, Cycles Shade is attached using heavy duty bungee’s that have been looped at the ends.

*When it is installed, it will help deter people wanting to sit on or climb aboard. Sort of like a security system in a bag.

*Keeps harmful UV rays from damaging seats and finishes.

*Offers a layer of protection from Tree sap, Pollen, Bird Droppings, and other animal effects.

*Available in the Standard Black or customizable with one of the numerous logos available.

*Available in different sizes and coverage amounts.

Trim Up For Summer

Have you run out of places for chrome on your ride? Have you considered adding Chrome Trim to the speakers on your Honda Gold Wing? Since this is one area on your motorcycle that is often overlooked, it is worthy of the addition of some bling. As you may or may not know, K and G Cycles carries a ton of accessories for your Gold Wing and that includes custom speaker trim.

Frt-Spkr-Trim-BBP-52-789   BBP-52-789 is The Contour Series Front Speaker Trim. It delivers stylish curves and a flare of elegance to enhance the classic style of Honda’s GL1800 Gold Wing. These front speaker accents capture the Contour Series design by molding to the curves of the existing OEM speakers. You can’t go wrong with the  simple installation of brilliant chrome plated ABS that highlights the seamless lines and gives these speaker accents a step above the rest. Not to mention the overall value of these covers.

   Rr-spkr-trim-BBP-52-790Continuing the customization we head to the passenger area and take a look at Part # BBP-52-790. The Contour Series Rear Speaker Covers for GL 1800′s. A great compliment to the front speaker covers, the rear covers are the same easy installation and brilliant chrome coming together to give you a one of a kind look. Durability is achieved by the use of ABS plastic that is chrome plated for a show shine. Share the chrome with your passenger and install the rear set of covers too.

   Giving your Gold Wing a custom look above and beyond all others is what we strive for. We all want our bike to be different from the others and it is the small touches that complete this task. K and G Cycles can help you achieve this.

Light It Up, Your Path That Is

At some point in our riding career, we will replace the headlights on our motorcycles and scratch our heads as to which ones to install. Do we stick with the OEM replacement unit? Do we upgrade to a Plasma or HID light? We even have to consider an LED replacement these days. At K and G Cycles our goal is to provide you the best value for your hard earned dollar and sometimes that means searching all over the place to do so. Well, in our travels we have found an affordable priced LED headlight replacement bulb for your Honda Gold Wing GL1500.

BBP-10-105 LED Replacement Bulb    If you want the brilliance and clarity of LED lighting but the price of it scares you away, we have the solution. Part # BBP-10-105 is a condenser style constant current LED bulb that is a direct replacement for the standard H4 bulb found on GL1500s (1988-1997) Headlights. This bulb features 16 high capacity 5 watt LEDs circling this new H4 replacement as well as a condenser lens to greatly enhance the brightness. This is truly an exceptional 80 watt LED bulb. Designed to fit GL1500 Gold Wings 1988-97, this will work as a replacement for any other H4 application. With a price tag under $60 this should be an easy decision.

BBP-10-104_1_LED Replacement Bulb     Now if we the replaced the center light and left the outer ones alone, we wouldn’t be doing much good. Have no fear, we have LED replacements for the outer lights too. A condenser lens constant current LED bulb (Part # BBP-10-104) replaces the standard GE # 192-T 3 ¼ wedge base 5 watt position light bulb as used on the GL1500 Gold Wing front lighting system. This custom designed LED bulb has (5) 5 watt condenser lensed LED’s that come together to give you a whopping 25 watts, all in an LED bulb measuring only 32mm (1¼”) long. This condenser lens LED fits directly into the OEM outer light position sockets on all years of the GL1500 Gold Wing (1988-2000). Since they are sold as a single unit, 2 are required for the GL1500. These bulbs also fit as replacements for most other uses of T 3 ¼ wedge bulbs. For less than $25 each, you can increase your visual footprint dramatically and still stay within your budget.

   Updating your lighting shouldn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. With LED bulb replacements from K and G Cycles you can get the job done for around $100. Increasing your safety by installing cleaner, brighter lights has never been closer than it is right now. Shop on over and get ready yo see a whole new light when it comes to your motorcycle.

Peace Keeper Saves Marriages

For those of us that have a factory intercom system on our bike, two of the most common used phrases are “Turn that Down!” or “Can you turn that Up!” K and G Cycles has the solution to this back and forth game that will without a doubt make your travels better. An inline intercom Volume Control Module, available today and ready for immediate delivery. .

BBP-13-206   Everyone sets sound levels differently for their own desired listening levels. K and G Cycles is aware of this need for individual volume control while riding. As both the rider and the passenger more often than not would prefer to regulate their own volume as opposed to meet in the middle. After searching high and low, we have finally stumbled onto a 5 Pin Din Volume Control device. This Plug ‘N Play module ( Part # BBP-13-206 ) simply plugs in between your headset and your motorcycle 5 pin din connector. This easy to install module immediately gives the user control of both left and right speakers individually as well as microphone volume control. This now gives the passenger the option of 100% on or 100% off. The 3 function volume control is the ideal way to eliminate listening compromises and makes motoring much more enjoyable for everyone involved. Due to it’s low, low price of $59.95, you can afford to give one as a Birthday gift, Pre-season gift, a fun pre-ride gift, or even for no reason at all.

   When you finally decide you’ve had enough of the “Too loud, not loud enough, I can’t hear you” game, head over to K and G Cycles and order up one of these handy volume control modules today. It saved a lot of headache in my marriage and now we ride together more often on longer relaxing rides.

Riding Comfort Extends the Miles

Let’s face it, we all know the benefits of riding with a backrest, but hate the additional clunky brackets. Not to mention the loss of leg room for the passenger. K and G Cycles has stumbled upon a solution that will have you ordering one before you finish reading this.

The new sleek design rider backrest that removes the clunky mounting structure.   Until now if we wanted a Rider Backrest for our Honda  Gold Wing, we had to mount a superstructure to our ride and deal with it. Big Bike Parts has come released a new “Made in the USA” Smart Mount through the seat backrest and is now available for the  Gold Wing. This new backrest attaches through the seat and only the backrest pad and support arm sit above the surface of the driver’s seat. This innovative design eliminates all side mounting brackets and the backrest hoop, delivering a clean look and more leg room for the rear passenger. This new system utilizes Big Bike Parts copyrighted pad hinge and adjustable tongue, thus allowing the rider to take full advantage of the 1″ range of adjustment on the pad, as well as pivoting forward or back, allowing you to stretch while riding. This kit comes with a complete set of  instructions and all the required mounting hardware. The backrest also includes a handy removable storage pouch on the backside for your small valuables.

   The more miles we rack up, the more we realize that increased comfort is never a bad quest, and adding a rider backrest certainly increases comfort, but until now, came with sacrificing passenger space. K and G Cycles is proud to offer the new design Rider Backrest from Big Bike Parts that says “Goodbye” to the external bones and “Hello” all to the sleek lines we are used to on Honda GL’s. Order yours today!

Passenger Comfort Keeps Them Happy

A Touring Bike should afford the most comfort in the Motorcycling World one could imagine. From adjustable footrests, to larger seats, upgradable audio systems and hands free communication, and an often overlooked accessory – Passenger Armrests. No, they aren’t new, unless you own a Can Am Spyder. Add these to your Can Am and your passenger will have the utmost in luxury accommodations.

Spyder pass arm rests BBP-41-159    K and G Cycles  introduces an all new Passenger Armrest system for the Can-Am Spyder RT. These armrests mount underneath the rear of the seat to the frame, providing a very stable and secure anchor point. The positioning of the cast chrome swivel mounts on the side of the passenger seating area maintain a clean line. This also allows the chrome tubular support arms to pivot completely out of the passengers area for easy access to the seat. The armrests match the Smart Mount Backrest, Part # BBP-41-168, and work well together providing both Rider and Passenger with comfort and support.

    Keeping with the notion of increasing passenger comfort, a Honda Gold Wing is a comfortable Touring Machine as well, but there are ways to make it more comfortable for your passenger? K and G Cycles knows full well if your passenger isn’t happy than your ride can be pretty miserable. We want to make sure that doesn’t happen so that is why we carry Passenger Armrest Kits for the passenger on your Gold Wing.

GW pass armrest BBP-52-677A   Part # BBP-52-677A is a set of Armrests that fit 2001-2010 and 2012+ Honda Gold Wings. Covered in OEM matching fabric, these armrests conveniently swing out of the way so your passenger can access the rear seat with relative ease. Installation is simple as the armrests simply bolt to the passenger handles on each side and mount to the frame for a solid mount. For your peace of mind the installation of this kit does not affect Trunk and Saddlebag operation. They can be accessed without removing the armrests. The armrest pads have a 2-1/2″ thick soft foam pad for comfort. Coming in with a dimension of 7″L x 4-1/2″W it is clear to see why these armrests are the preferred choice when it comes to pampering your passenger.

   At K and G Cycles we strive to bring the the latest and greatest in motorcycle parts and accessories. Any time we can enhance the power of your bike or increase the comfort level we take pride in doing so. Adding passenger armrests to your Gold Wing can increase the shared miles and increase the overall enjoyment of owning a your motorcycle.

The Best Mobile Motorcycle Shelter

It is always a good day when we are notified by our suppliers they have redesigned a product and improved its effectiveness. K and G Cycles recently received notice from Speedway Motorsports Shelters that a simple part change has led to improved watershed and internal clearance on their Instant Shelters.

   Here is the press release directly from Speedway Motorsports Shelters: Santa Cruz, CA.- In a constant effort to improve the entire line of Speedway Motorsport Shelters products, the engineers have made an excellent revision to our ever popular retractable shelters. Simple, yet extremely effective, the best just got better! 

   Here you can see this simple change will make all the difference in extreme weather. 
   By using the new new speedway bowsarched design on the top three cross members, the Speedway Shelter will shed rain, snow, and anything that comes down in a much more efficient manner. As seen below, in addition to external aspect and functionality of the design, it will also allow for more internal clearance facilitating even higher windshields, handlebars, and mirror heights when the bike is parked in the unit.

old and new shelters   As you can see there is a visible arch to the roof of the revamped shelters. This has led to increased interior clearance as well as a greater amount of element deflection on the outside. Sometimes when a product is “redesigned” quality in other areas tends to be overlooked. This is not the case with the Speedway Motorsports Shelter. They have not missed a beat with this upgrade. In fact it is better than ever. Check out the complete line at K and G Cycles.

Turn on The Night L.E.D. Style
