Re: O/D light inop and cruise inop

Update to my issue. Appears the O/D light going out and the cruise control inop was just a coincident.

Re: New 2018 Goldwing Survey

I have been an avid fan of Honda since I was about 7 years old(long long time ago)and fell in love with the goldwing when I saw my first one in 1975. I have loved almost every improvement made. I wasn't overly impressed with the GL1800 but i looked good. I am totally disappointed in the new wing I u...
