Off the Wall question, spelling . . .

Why do I see a ton of places (here too) spell it Goldwing when Honda spells it Gold Wing? Wingworld magazine spells it Gold Wing.

The answer is: Honda calls it a Gold Wing. Wing World does whatever Honda says, so they call it a Gold Wing. 90% of the people who own them call it a Goldwing. Take your pick. :)

I always write it out as GoldWing the same way it looks on the side cover of the bike.

The answer is Yes. I don't think there is a wrong way to spell it.
