Love it or Hate It

Postby Eboness » Sat Dec 01, 2012 1:51 pm



I'm looking for your opinion on this colour and no it was not offered by Honda on a Goldwing
but was a colour the could be found on a VTX1800 in 2003 and on a VTX1300c in 2007. The 2003 colour was called
Uranium Green and the later 2007 colour was called Pearl Bright Green. In 2008 at Honda Homecoming, Honda
gave away this Goldwing, painted this colour. What do you think, love it or hate. Here in our chapter everyone has
an opinion and is seams to be half and half.

My opinion is I think it's great and would love to own a Goldwing this colour.

So what do you think?

Hmm...well I wouldn't turn my nose up at it if Honda wanted to give it to me for free, but I certainly wouldn't go out and pick one that color intentionally!

I dont hate it ,its better than the Teal that they did produce for the 1500. I would never choose this for myself. The graphics help break it up some. If we all liked the same thing it would be a very boring world, so I say if you like it what does it matter what anyone else thinks . 8-)

Actually, I liked that GL1500 teal color. It was my second choice behind white. :)

I am a big "blue" guy...go fig I have a car that is red, a GW that is "champagne", a truck that is tan (that is another story), my wife's car is "burnt orange".....

I would not mind this metallic green color, it is eye catching, definitely different than anything else I have seen.

When I first saw that color on the VTX I liked it. Then the more I saw it on the road the less I liked it. On the 1800? Not for me.

i bet the PinkWing wouldnt be an invisible bike (during the day), and the mettallic green is stupendous IMO (id have one in an NY minute)- Guzzi was brave sometimes with their color combos

I like the color, it's different.
But then I like this bright pink trike.

One year Harley offered the Ultra Classic Limited in candy apple green with black trim and I thought it was nice.

The thing that stands out for me on this GL1800 is that it is a one of a kind color. They did not make Goldwings this color, so nobody else would have the same one. I am not a fan of green, but if I had had a chance to get this green one with black trim, instead of the common silver colored one I got, same year, same stuff, brand new, I think I would have bought it. (that is, if I had known any of this at the time, which I did not...) I am still so new to knowledge about Goldwings that I personally could be considered "green".

Agreed! It stands out enough, if it was ever stolen, would be pretty damn easy to locate.

I was thinking along the lines of safety, visability to cages would(hopefully) be better, and anything we can do to lessen the chances of a crash the better, so I would take it.

I keep looking at this bike and the more I look at it the better it looks to me, I love the stripe design and how it goes all the way across the bike and then they added some on the trunk, looks sharp....It's different.... :D

I like it. I don't know that I would without the graphics though. It really looks like it should be on a Kawasaki not a wing. :)
