I don't mind the features or technology, but I will never buy one because I can't afford it.

That's what they used to say about the Bonneville - overhead valve, centrifugal spark advance, carb priming, handlebar mounted choke lever, powerful motor, light weight, superb handling - excuse me, I'm about to cry.

I think the new Honda Civic is cheaper and gets better gas mileage. Next time do a fair comparison between the Goldwing and the Civic.

Amen brother. I am 43 with 5 kids. I would love to have all the best stuff, but choices have to be made.
