    Latest Goldwing, i think it looks good, also a lot of tech on it, maybe Honda is starting to catch up on that front.

    Agree Paul, looks nice and encouraging to see the tech competing with BMW. That said, I'm still something of a luddite and prefer something that isn't gong to run into reliability problems when it hits three years old.

    Hardly the solution to the CT's weight problem at 379kg LOL!

    I am hoping that Honda will do the same with CT for weight but also a little bit of tech. Will have to have a look at the Goldwing at the NEC on 20 Nov. Some good videos on Youtube from Honda Canada.

    Awesome bike for touring and DCT as well. The 1500 was excellent for touring  but this is something else!!

     I almost agree, I had a gl1000  back in 1975, and to me that's the best looking of all the wings but I do like the look of this new one, especially with the topbox and armrest thingy off. 
     If I could have just one of my old bikes back it would be that 1st goldwing but no doubt it would seem a bit agricultural up against this new one especially with the dct  .

    When my local Honda dealer has an open day and the Honda UK bikes are there, I never miss a chance to have a go on one!  :305:
