It's got a huge ass, for a touring bike it's sporty looking. Not my personal cup of tea as I'm not in my deep 80's yet LOL. I still like BMW touring bikes more.

Looks good.
They remove 2 of the most practical things on a Goldwing
The windshield in the winter and the tourpack,
Would be nice if those were take off accessories.

Okay I will try to put it politely....ITS FUCKING UGLY! Really, and no amount of spiffy advertising will convince me you're one cool ass mother for riding it, more like a lame ass, because they took a touring bike and made it a bagger ala Harley Davidson Who buys this kind of POS bike? HD wannabe posers You want a sport touring bike, buy one, want a touring bike buy one, want a bagger, man up buy a Harley and ride it from bar to bar with your lame ass badass stock brokers, dentists and tax attorneys friends. The only heads you'll turn riding that thing are the one's turning to vomit because you look like a king sized dork riding a Honda bagger. Is that polite enough?

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

Mike answers to your question; NO, she immediately started laughing at him for being stupid enough to buy a Goldwing bagger.

You can put Sat Radio on any bike you want...I have seen aftermarket stuff on a number of Ducati ST models.

Wow Rick, don't sugar coat it, lol.

Even though there's probably a market for this bike, Ofugit pretty much nailed it. Honda could make a version of the 'Wing with detachable shield & top case + these styling changes and end up with a more desirable bike.

To each there own, though. I've put some miles on a Goldwing and it's a much more capable bike than many think.


Oh, & Mike, you can add XM to a few Garmin models. Have it on my CBR.

I don't like it.
Wanna be Harley.

As I use to own a gold wing I prefer it the way it was. It was a real nice bike with tons of storage and driver and passenger comfort.

Dude you caught me with it in my hand

I'm not saying I would run out and buy one....yes it is a HD knockoff. However, I think it fits a target that doesn't want to buy a Harley but wants something that doesn't vibrate, Honda reliable, etc...without switching to a Harley.

Did the Green Cross run Dry? - GEEBUS - Unless it is a Spot Tour that can handle 1M miles a day I guess you are not down with it, huh?

Everyone I have ever talked to about Goldwings all say the same thing, fun for a bit but then boredom sets in - I think Chey almost fell asleep while riding one - For reals

I know some day i will go this route but see me more of a BMW type

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

Don't see how it is a Harley wanna be. Harley baggers look the same as a 40 yr old Harley bagger. Modern era trying to look old. This Honda is a modern bike with hardbags, not pretending to dumb down its look to look like a relic. Not my cup of tea but not a Harley look-alike.
