  • Front Forks

    The Front Forks needs to be changed and beefed up for better performance

  • Thirty Years Later
    By  (I am an Owner) on Aug 29, 2009

    This is my first bike in 30 years. What a machine. The Goldwing has it all, comfort, power, handling, looks, etc... I owned 2 Suzukis when in my teens and twentys. 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 having ...

  • 1800 Gold Wing Trike
    By  (I am an Owner) on Apr 27, 2009

    I have a 2008 Gold Wing Trike and I am a very short person but i don't have any leg room. The seat needs to be back about another 5 inches to make it a comfortable ride. Other than the no leg room its a great Bike.

    By  (I am an Owner) on Dec 11, 2008

Went staight through to Pensecola the first day and only stopped because it was late at night. Great power when you need to get away from the tail gaters, excellent and sure breaking, ...

  • Gold Wing - Great Touring Bike
    By  (I am an Owner) on 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 and that ...

  • new bike/trike
    By  (I am an Owner) on 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 ...

  • This is not your Fathers Gold Wing
    By  (I am an Owner) on 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 sound system is by far the best out there--you can hear everything clearly cruising @ 75 MPH.

    Heated seats-Heated Grips-Vents to send warm air from the engine to your legs and feet. Man this is LUXURY TOURING at its BEST!

    Most motorcycle people want to individualize their bikes. Every single aftermarket part that I have purchased fits like an OEM component and nothing needed to be tweaked to get it to fit.

    Honda thinks about its Buyers.

    I installed some HID fog lights--EVERYTHING was prewired by Honda including the switch location in the fairing.

    POWER-HANDLING-COMFORT-PREMIUM SOUND what more can you ask for?

    Please Note:

    I have owned over 17 motorcycles from sportbikes to cruisers to other touring bikes including--BMW's K1200LT.

    This is a GREAT bike for hitting the highways @ 80 or cruising through town @ 30.

    The bike mags are correct for rating this the BEST LUXURY TOURER out there-year after year!
