A 17 year run from 2001, longer than the 1500......Perhaps 2018 is the year for change, hopefully it won't be catastrophic change to the character of what a goldwing has been for the last 40 years of it's life.

When the change does come it had better be similar to the BMW K1600GTL in terms of a luxury touring bike ought to be, only with goldwing comfort for both rider and passenger.

We've seen the patents that are out there filed by Honda, hopefully they will get it right when they finally launch the new incarnation of the wing.

Change is coming, and it's just been too long.

Hopefully honda will listen to folks here and other forums like it and nail it when they do launch the new wing.

I have never had success with an odd year vehicle, they always turn bad. Maybe Honda should only release models every other even year?

I'm on the cusp of buying a new, yes brand new bike, so far it looks like it may very well be an Indian as soon as i drive down to Washington from Alaska this winter.
