Subject: Goldwing Engine on a Harley Ultra Classic?

Hi Cyril. Found your link on the www. Been a Harley fan here in the USA for years. In Europe I ride a Honda Goldwing. Love that bike for the power climbing the mountains there. I’m doing rather long excursions like San Diego to Palm Beach or yearly San Diego to Cabo San Lucas and back. Problem is that my wife – on long trips – can’t take the heat on the right hand aft side of the Harley anymore. Installed heat deflectors and such but nothing really works… especially in 110°+F outside temperatures like in the Baja de California! So here is my question: Could you install a Goldwing Engine on a Harley Ultra Classic? Sort of mend the best of both worlds? Looking forward to hearing from you I remain. With best regards. Thomas.
