Re: Honda disgraced themselves with the 2018 Goldwing

new GW's have walk mode with DCT which I assume is what you're referring to as forward assist?

Re: 2018 GL1800 Center stand

Unless you are riding 2 up all the time and need the extra storage, you'll find that the base GW will give you everything you need. I've never adjusted the rear shock setting since it's just me and my duffle bag if necessary. It's not a stripper-but a bagger!. enjoy

Re: 2018 GL1800 Center stand

maybe the angle of the muffler to the pipe can be off just a little between bikes? Oh, well, you got it on.

Re: 2018 GL1800 Center stand

Don't know what's different for you? Several others have done it from the right side with no issue. Is yours a 2019 or 2018? Maybe they changed something?

Re: A couple of questions

It does not come with sxm antenna, but it is plug and play under the seat. You don't need their $100 one, I used one from an old xm radio-you can buy on amazon for <$15. I mounted my antenna behind the pillion, and it works fine there. On a tour model, you could mount it on the top box. The factory ...

Re: Dunlop Tires???

we do ride pretty aggressively, but still should get more mileage, I'd think. Think I'll try the exedra g852/g853 combo this time Put the G52/G53 Exedra's on- major improvement over the 243's even when still slick. More rounded profile-fits the handling characteristics of this bike better, IMHO. FW...

Re: Dunlop Tires???

8800 and the left side of the front is a slick, rear not far behind. Thinking about Roadsmart III's or Bridgestone Excedra's if I can find correct sizes. Just as soon not go back to Dunlop 243's with this lousy mileage

Re: TPMS- again

mine was on when I picked it up, found out you need to air the tires down to a quite low pressure then to bring them back to normal operating pressure. It corrected my issue and the only time they came back on was when the tires were low. Dealer said it was written up in service manual.

Re: LIGHTS GOING CRAZY ON MY LEMON DCT! Help?

Ohio has a lemon law that covers motorcycle as well. If there is a major defect that can't be repaired within a "reasonable" number of attempts, the dealership must either replace the motorcycle or give you your money back. There is a time and mileage limit, so get on it! Don't give up on the bike i...

Re: Elite 4's on a 2018?

He hasn't given me a price, just said I wouldn't believe how low it would be-we'll see. before I even talked to him about it just wanted other people's opinion on the tires themselves on the 2018.

Re: 2018 Goldwing

Have a gray bagger dct and love it more every time I ride it. Just shy of 8000 miles on it. Get 260 miles/tank in town, 275-290 on hwy. Great power and handling. GPS is better with updates, still not great.

Re: All you need to know about the new 2018 Goldwing

My group is certainly not into the "group thing" as most perceive. Not into the 30,40, 60+ group rides with 3 leaders, 2 sweeps, and 3 traffic blockers, etc. We're an eclectic, laid back, no drama kinda group. Usually 6-10 max. We don't care who leads as long as you know where you're going. You wann...

I understand the flip a coin and let's try this road attitude, but when I have to lead a local group and want to find an interesting route that we haven't run before, the nav is way important as the route may have 30-50 waypoints
