The air hose outlet will be found in the right saddlebag.

But, you are better off not trying to air up a tire unless it only needs a few PSI added. The compressor is too weak to do much else than add air to your suspension.

From the Honda Gold Wing Owners Manual.

Your motorcycle has an on-board air compressor system whose primary function is to allow you to easily adjust the air pressure in your rear suspension (page 44). The compressor also has an auxiliary outlet valve that can be used with an optional Honda or commercially-available air supply (extension) hose to inflate a tire or other inflatable item.

To use the outlet,
1. Tum the ignition switch to the P (park) position.
2. Open the right saddlebag.
3. Connect the air supply (extension) hose to the outlet valve.
4. Remove the tire valve cap and connect the air supply (extension) hose to the tire valve.
5. Push the OUTLET button on the air pressure control panel to supply air pressure. The air pressure reading will not appear in the display.

Operating the air pump for more than five minutes can overheat its motor.

6. Remove the air supply (extension) hose from the tire and outlet valve. (The on-board air compressor will not increase rear suspension air pressure with the hose attached. Air will bleed off through the hose.)

Be aware that it will take more then 30 minutes of operation of the pump to get enough air into a flat tire before it is rideable. Also be aware that operating the pump to supply air to the outlet hose must be done with the ignition in the P position. The engine will not be running and you will inevitably run down the battery.

Bottom line, buy a small air compressor and carry it in the saddlebag.
