Default Re: Why Bother?

So Honda is not perfect. I suppose no other manufacturer ever has any recalls? My Wing was not recalled for the frame, but it did have the overheating issue.



True, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so I will give you that one.

The Wing has more horsepower and more torque than any of these bikes, and thanks to the six cylinders, it delivers that power in an extremely smooth manner rather than the 'throbbing' twin.



As far as runbling...who wants to have their ear drums blasted out when they are in the saddle for 800 miles a day?

Default Re: Why not a Civic?

Because I already own an Accord.



True the CD is expensive, but show me another bike that has a fully integrated CD player and CB radio that do not take away any cargo space?

Default Re: You might notice

"Score" is a feature that ANY MO user can use to moderate a post's rating. Everyone can see the current score for a post.


"Threshold" is a feature that ANY MO user can use to filter which posts show up in the thread. However, the threshold filter only works for that individual reader. ie... if you set Threshold to "1" your browser will only show you posts that have a score of "1" or higher, but it will not affect what other MO users see.

Default Re: Why Bother?

I've ridden the four cylinder wings before and they were everything you say and more. I also had a Fiat X1/9 which was similar but handled much better. I think you are missing the motorcycle experience if a Goldwing is all you ride. Of course the sixes are probably more of the same but I doubt very many readers of this mag would want to go there. I have a 2002 Civic as one of my three cars now and it is the least interesting of my vehicles, the other being a VW Golf TDI and a Chevy Siverado. Surprisingly to me, I would only rate it third in quality. My favorite ride I currently own is a Ducati 900SS and I love it. The top three picks in this article all sound worthy of consideration as a second bike though.

At least they'll rev them near their respective redlines.

Default Re: Defending the U.S. made Wing vs the Harley

As soon as the Gold Wing transforms into an Air Cooled (or pseudo air cooled) V-Twin it has [b]NO</a> place in this comparro.



With all due respect, why don't you guys give it a rest?

Default le' me guess ....

let me take a wild guess: gabe threw a tantrum because he insisted on triple (quadruple?) the column inches of everyone else in the test. and someone buckled rather than tackle the intimidating task of editing back comments that ran WAY too long.



next time you feel compelled to indulge enormous writer egos, here's a hint from a long-time reader: sometimes less is more.
