2008 Ultra, Fantastic
By John Teague(Owner), Oct. 19, 2009
I have owned 7 Goldwings, and 5 Ultras. The 2008 Ultra is the best of them all. Fantastic handeling, and a real comfort. Love the six speed. I am fairly tall and the low center of gravity gives me the feeling of being in the bike instead of on top of it. Cornering is a blast. Read Full Review

22K Miles... Love it!
By Biker Bill(Owner), Apr. 6, 2010
Well I have put 22K miles on my '08 Ultra and I am loving it! I ride it all the time and people stop me and comment on how awesome the bike is. It stands out and leads the pack every time.

By Hammer(Owner), Nov. 26, 2010
Love this bike. I ride my Ultra all over Texas (457 miles one day) on vacation or day trips with my brothers... she's a pleasure to ride. This bike handles great, I actually scraped one of the floor boards with my wife on the back one day. It startled both of us!



But, the engine does run hot, and... Read Full Review

Gotta love it!
By Bill(Owner), Jun. 17, 2011
Bought my 105th Anniversary #6991 of 7000 in spring of 2010. It is a gorgeous bike and I get nothing but compliments all the time. I find it a bit heavy to balance compared to my previous Road Star Midnight Silverado.

Sixth gear is a bit too high and you need to be going at least 60MPH to go there... Read Full Review
