What's your opinion of the new model Goldwing after reading the above?

It does look smaller almost ST1300 like.

Paul, thank you for posting those links. Very good information.

I have been watching the rumor mill turn on this bike for a few months, it's good to see Honda updating this platform.

I am NOT impressed with a 5.5 gallon fuel tank on a GoldWing. What crap is that?

Other than the ridiculous fuel capacity, this looks nice. Not "trade in my FJR" nice, but nice.

I agree with Redfish, I like the looks, and a lot of the updates; lighter weight, electric windshield, key fob...Etc.etc; but I'll probably wait for the second or third iteration before I consider buying one. I'm really happy with my ST, and may look at an FJR again before I pull the trigger on another bike. I just like the lighter weight, quick speed , handling, and minimalism of an ST style bike.

Big time Weight loss, Moly pistons and Overdrive˛ will not make up for the lost 1.1 gallon.
Fuel is under the seat on the Wing, always has been.
Throttle control is the first lesson learned.
Number two is You Do Not Push a Wing, any year any model.

Gas tank low Under the seat that… Good.

Less gas.....bad.

42 mpg I don't think so.

ST1100 ....looking better all the time!

Default Re: 2018 Goldwing Propaganda Released

After I retire I want to go touring, and am not convinced that my ST is the right horse for the job. But there's no rush to make that decision, and a lot can happen in the meantime.

I've been toying with the idea of picking up a 2000 1500SE that is floating around right now on my local craigslist for very reasonable money, but may hold off for five years until there are some used 2018+ models on the market.
