Re: Honda disgraced themselves with the 2018 Goldwing

Your welcome to your opinion Ryan. It all depends on what kind of riding you do and how far. When you are real far from home it’s real nice having ALL THAT TECHKNOLGY, some people don’t like all the technology and that’s fine. But if you think I need all the technology to go fast you’re sadly mistak...

Re: A comparison between the 2018 and 2001 GoldWing

During my long ride, my Knee started giving me a lot of problems. If I didn't have the Walk Forward/Reverse feature I would of been screwed.
Plus if the bike did fall on top of you, you could push the Series button and say call 911. Great feature for safety.

Hi Everyone, riding in the Rain is when riders need to use extra Caution, give your self 3 times the following, and stoping distance. Be ever so gentle on the Brakes and Throttle. If possible pull over in a SAFE place NOT ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD as there has been riders hit and some killed sitting o...

That being said, after riding my 2018 Wing for 1,000 miles, it is so good , so advanced in technology, suspension, ...

Re: X-MEN RADIO

Thanks c-dub, I figured it out, once you have the XM station you want, HOLD DOWN the Home button, a sub menus appears scroll down to PRESETS PICK THE NUMBER PRESET YOU WANT THEN PRESS ENTER EITHER ON LEFT HANDLE BAR OR CENTER KNOB. Hope this helps.

X-MEN RADIO

Hi all, has anyone figured out how to set the Prests stations on the XM radio. The only thing I’ve read in the Navigation manual, is very veg and suggests to contact Serious XM which they don’t have a clue about the new Wing.

Re: FLUID WARNING

This is been the procedure with every HONDA I've owned for the past 40 years Dirt bikes, ATV's, Sport bike 750's, CBX, WINGS From 1985 to present 2018. NOT SCREWING IN THE DIP STICK. Very important though to not check it COLD, START AND RUN 3 TO 5 MINUTES AS THE MANUAL STATES.

Re: FLUID WARNING

I agree, I also worked at motorcycle & car dealerships, most of the tech’s are on flat rate pay meaning if it pays 1.0 = 1 hour to uncreate, Assemble mirrors Windshield etc, and wash. If it take the tech more than an hour he is losing money. So all those items on the PDI list never get checked. Whic...

Hi all, just a heads up. Checked my Final drive it was 2 OUNCES LOW, Anti Freeze a couple of slashes low, Motor Oil,JUST REGISTERING ON THE DIP STICK. Wow either Toby the Robot was having a bad day, or someone at Honda isn't paying attention. Wish I would of checked it the day I picked it up.

Re: Test ride

It isn’t for everyone, as it is tight on packing. I just packed mine for a month long trip, I travel alone so I was able to bring what I needed. I myself don’t see Honda changing anything as the dealers are selling them as soon as they get them. I think the gen2 wings will be in demand as well.

Re: 2018 GL1800 Test Ride Report

It’s hard to really get a true experience on a test ride, as I did 4 of them before making my purchase. As for the DCT I felt kind of the same way you did, until I rode for a whole day. The transmission has a memory and will shift accordingly to how you ride. So when you hope on a test ride bike, th...

Hi all, my new Wing came with Dunlop D423F tires. I've run Bridgestone in the past, does anyone know around what milage I can expect out of the Dunlops? It will be mainly highway miles.
