    IMO, stick w/HD. Their oil might not be the best recommendation, but their filters are good.

    There's some good stuff on this under the self help section, but I would second (or third) the recommendation for HD filters.

    If you are doing your own oil changes, get a good oil filter removal tool BEFORE changing oil.
    Limited space and sometimes they are on tighter than you figured.

    What prompted you to buy a HD rather than continue with your Goldwing? My bro just bought an 08 GW and loves it. I rode it and, while it is definately a nice machine and, when looked at on a strictly value per dollar a better deal than a comparably priced HD, I just didn't "connect" with it. I know the GW has a loyal following though.
