Goldwing bagger

I think I like this new Goldwing. But, before I jump to any conclusions, I want your opinion. I don't want to be the only one that likes it, after all:




Too big for my taste really, but it does have a awesome cool factor. Could be a contender for the Rocket/Thunderbird/Road-Glide crowd.

Well, they certainly managed to make the Goldwing look bigger. The chisel-jawed model is probably over six-feet tall and he looks tiny compared to the bike.

It looks cooler than a car.

If he was over six feet tall his knees would up under the bars. I'm 6 foot 2 and had no leg room on the GW.

That's actually Honda's new "chisel-jawed" optional helmet visor. R&D has been developing it for years for the um...how can I say this...for the "less attractive" Honda owners who don't want to go fullface all the time.

Triumph R&D has been busy trying to catch up with their optional "good-looking rider" visor. Here's theirs so far:

I saw that on the Honda website when I was checking out the specs on their new CB1100. It actually looks pretty badass for a big 'wing!

FYI fellow Wing rider at work is 6' 7" and around 280 pounds...amazingly he fits fine on the wing.... His knees are not anywhere near the bars......

Also I seriously doubt that that guy is more than 5'9"....

If you notice at six foot my knees are atleast a foot + from the bars...lol

Ha ha ha ha - I just looked the Wing up on the web, it really is called a Bagger. I thought the title of the thread meant Bonnie Black likes to "bag out" (lay grief on) on Wings.

Anyway, what's not to like Lee, is 381 kegs. FMD!! That's well over two and a half time the weight of my bike.

I know we ride at opposite ends of the spectrum, we look for different thrills, but that's a phat phuken motorbike.
