the new Goldwing is a sharp looking bike but even if I had the money I don't think I would buy one cause I want my next bike to weigh no more than the mighty ST 1300

the new 1800 goldwing is impressive but it is going away of the meaning of goldwing as i understand and love. luggage and fuel going back, sportiness like a R-bike. my oldwing 1200 has more room for my luggage, about 30-40 liters more. i think i'll get a problem with the new one. prices are high, far too high for me. when they sold my bike new the price was aprox a third of the new one. is the new 3 times better than my oldwing? i don't think. i don't get 3 times the money i earned back in 86. i will keep my old oldwing and enjoy it without reverse gear :-)

the total loss of luggage capacity is equal to one 2017 Goldwing saddle bag and I think the center stand is an option. want a shift lever for your DTC, that's one expensive option

There is no way I would not want one of the new Gold Wings. Checks off all of my boxes. More power, great suspension and ride, all the geegaws you could want. A lot of the improvements that 1800 owners asked for have been addressed. I get tired of having to work on the Gold Witch; it would be nice to have a bike that all I have to do is get on it and go. Besides I always have something to work on to keep me busy and broke.

Having less storage is always a problem. There is never enough with a motorcycle. The dash reminds me of an Accord or something but it's been going that way for a while now. I'm in, just too much for a retiree.

I 100% agree. I've always gone down that road, (thought that way) I'll be in my 70's when they're 10 years old, so I guess we'll see what happens then.

I had and drove all the Wings, 1000, 1100, 1200, 1500, 1800. I did like the 1500 and 1800 Wings but, my best is my 1998 Valk, easy to work on and reliable ( not as many gadgets to break down ) I don't like the looks of the new Wing and there are to many things that could go wrong with all that new stuff that you can't fix yourself.

I never thought I would ever be able to afford an 1800 either. When I walked into a dealership a year & a half ago & seen that pretty orange 02 (that I fell in love with in 2002) it wasn't hard to part with my 78 1000 & $5.500. Mine has a fork brace on it & it still amazes me how well & nimble this bike handles! Bought it with 91.000 miles & it now has 104.000 miles on it & it will probably last me my lifetime (I'm 64)
If you look around there's plenty of VERY AFFORDABLE 1800's out there. Knowing what I know now sometimes I wishes I would of waited & got one with less miles.Then again I love the orange! But hey a fellow in a neighboring town has a yellow one with 484.000 miles on it. And with people lining up to get their hands on the new 1800's I have a feeling the market for used 1800's is going to the buyers favor.

I've had an '06 since new and have 110k miles on it. I feel it is just getting broke in, but only one thing holds me back from trading. It just isn't right for two normal sized older Americans to tour on. A little too small, and not enough storage (although we have already added a uni-go for the '06). If I rode one-up, the new 'wing would definitely be at the top of my wish list in a year or two.

Price isn't really much higher than the '17 and yes, it does have a center stand (on the tour model). The GL1800 forums that I frequent are split over it, but no one has really bought one and driven it as they just are not yet available. I have seen the prices on nice used GL1800s drop like a rock, however. I don't feel that it is warranted, but the guys don't expect a good trade value so they are all listing them on the sites, Craigslist, etc. One nearby friend is giving his '02 with full monty Traxxion to his son and buying the '18.
