This is not your Fathers Gold Wing
By John Shimkus(Owner), Sep. 18, 2008
I thought for so many years that the GOLD WING was an old mans bike. What a mistake I was making!

I have missed many years of enjoyable riding by not buying a Gold Wing sooner.

This bike handles extremly well. The Power is enormous-no downshifting to pass on the highway.

With the adjustable wind... Read Full Review

I thought the 750 was a smooth bike, it couldn't carry water to this Goldwing. I've had it a month and have been throttled by havin... Read Full Review

Gold Wing - Great Touring Bike
By GPhillips(Owner), Nov. 27, 2008
I bought my first Gold Wing this year at 43 yrs old and I wish I had bought one earlier. Everyone said it was for the "Depends" crowd but are they wrong. The Gold Wing has lots of power, a great stereo and eats up the miles on those long trips. I frequently drive from St Louis to Dallas ... Read Full Review

new bike/trike
By chris lowers(Owner), Nov. 10, 2008
Before I bought a highway bike, I talked to a lot of big touring bike owners. Harley, BMW, and Victory riders all told me the same thing; buy the Goldwing 1800. It was triked by Champion day one. The day I picked it up, I had to head north 450 miles. I admit I was tense for a while but it was so sm... Read Full Review
