Anyone going to the Cleveland Motorcycle Show this weekend? I'll be out there tomorrow, I'll get as many photos as I can, and see what's new!

Thanks for your report. Very interesting. Seems strange that Honda wasn't more representative. Then again, what's even new from Honda?

Thanks for the report and great photos.
I feel as Honda just revamped the Goldwing(s), they will coast through a few years to recoup some of the design and tooling costs.
Also, I hope they are receptive to the feedback of the public on their latest Wing.
As for the other manufacturers, it seems everyone is struggling to find new ideas and going retro or keeping the outdated styles and controls on their machines while they (hopefully) are coming up with 21st century ideas.
I can remember when the GL1500 came out, myself and friends shaking our heads at all that plastic. I now own my 3rd 1500.
