Can anyone guide me to or tell me the packages that are one the 2007-20009 Goldwing. I've been looking around and some bikes have this and some have that. Also, when I look at NADA they just have a bunch of numbers and I can't tell which model goes with which value. (see below)

GL18BM8 Goldwing (**)

GL18HPN8 Goldwing (**)

GL18HPNA8 Goldwing (ABS) (**)

GL18HPNAM8 Goldwing (ABS) (**)

GL18HPNM8 Goldwing (**)

GL18P8 Goldwing

GL18PM8 Goldwing

Thanks for any assistance.

Best I can do is guess a bit. I looked in the service manual and model ID is not like that. They have IIIA, IIICM, VA, VIICM etc. Each level of options has a different set like that, and 06-07 have a different set than 08-10 year models. So, as a guess as to what the letters mean, here goes:

B = Basic

H = Heated Seats and Grips

P = Premium Audio

N = Navigation

A = Airbag

M = XM Radio (only on U.S. Bikes)

8 = Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS - on all 08 and up)

Keep in mind that all this is only conjecture, using the optional equipment available to choose. I am probably way off the beam, but that would not be a novel thing.

Good guess but A = ABS and I assume 8 is for '08?

Do you know this for a fact? If so, right on. I had assumed ABS was taken care of with two of the model numbers as follows.

GL18HPNA8 Goldwing (ABS) (**)

GL18HPNAM8 Goldwing (ABS) (**)

However, as they are the only two models with an A in the coding, you are likely correct.

Okay, now that is forthcoming information JerryEric. Thank you. So according to that link, the answer to the above original question would be:

P = Premium Audio
H = Heat or Comfort option
N = Navi
M = Monitoring or TPMS
A = ABS
B = Airbag

'06 - '08
P = Premium Audio
HPN = Premium Audio/Comfort/Navi
HPNA = Premium Audio/Comfort/Navi/ABS
B = Premium Audio/Comfort/Navi/ABS/Airbag

'09 - '10
HPM = Premium Audio/Comfort
HPNM = Premium Audio/Comfort/Navi/XM
HPNAM = Premium Audio/Comfort/Navi/XM/ABS
BM = Premium Audio/Comfort/Navi/XM/ABS/Airbag


It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey
