Hi from Winnipeg Canada.

I came very very close to buying a carryover '13 F6B recently. The '13s were only available in black in Canada, and no deluxe package is offered either. However, all our Canadian F6B's come standard with ABS. I changed my mind at the last minute, as I had read that for the '14 model year, all Goldwings come with an updated transmission. Apparently the 4th and 5th gear shifting dogs and main and countershaft 4th and 5th gears had been upgraded for better reliability and no more "ghost" shifting issues. I will wait for the current '14's to be carryovers once the '15's are introduced. That usually means a $3k price reduction from Honda Canada and if the '13's are any indication, also 1.9% financing for 48 months. The 14's come in either black or red. I prefer the black, but every HD and other cruiser on the road seems to be black. The red would certainly stand out.

Any comments certainly welcome.

Thanks.
No yellows sold in Canada. Black or red only.
