Nice. Really like it, but I will reserve final judgement until I see one. I have ridden G.W.'s before and they make a hot day even hotter, just like a Harley Streetglide/Roadglide only not quite as bad.

I like it. It's like looking at a sporty luxury car.

Gotta see one in person. I like having an over the road MC in the garage, and I'm sick of the 02 VTX 1800R. That said, I've never had any problems with the X and it has done great on several 1000 mile+ trips. This wing looks great in the photo, really like it.

I wanted a Road Glide for the longest but after hearing all the stuff about motor failures due to the twin cam tensions and overheating problems they are having i think i would rather have the Goldwing. I love the sound of the Harleys, but i want dependability and Harley is not acknowledging they even have a problem with the twin cams. So the F6b Goldwing looks a whole lot better to me now. Plus i am getting older and becoming an old fart.

The Goldwing was never a bike I would even think about owning. Being under 40 years old, I think I would rather be on a hardtail (with a bad back) then a 'Wing. That being said, thats gotta be the best looking production Wing I have ever seen. You know its comfy, realiable, and now actually good looking.

The GoldWing is THE most comfortable motorcycle on the highway. Yeah, she ain't pretty, but remember the old adage " don't make a pretty woman your wife".

Went to the International Motorcycle show in San Mateo today and saw this bike in person. They didn't have a demo for a ride, but I did sit on it and I can tell you this; There is a LOT of interest in this bike. It is absolutely gorgeous in person and really comfortable. Going to try and ride one at my local dealer next week...

I think it is an incredible lateral jump from a Wing and will do very well. I think I would really enjoy it:}:}
