I know I want one - but I don't know how to pay for it.

Actually my current bike is a pretty good bagger and passenger hauler. I would like to add something lighter and more versatile - I'm kinda get stuck on the 500x.

I had a 2008 Gold Wing. I go through bikes faster than women go through shoes.

That's a pretty sleek looking bagger; something I never expected from a Wing. It looks a lot like my friend's BMW touring bagger, for which he made a chrome panel to replace the top box.

To me, I don't think it matters if there are some people that hate it. Just the fact that Honda is willing to make this bike (and the other new ones for 2013) is a big step in the right direction.
I'm really looking forward to trying out this and the 1100 next summer.

What took so long to come up with a Goldwing variation? I like the black out treatment but not the F6B designation.

Are you just objecting to the name? I have to admit, I kinda like the name, reminds me of the Valkyrie ;)

Ya, I am objecting to the name They should have called it GL1800 Valkyrie!

I loathe license plate names like ER-6n, DN-01, etc... Much easier to give it a proper name.. F6B doesn't do it for me, name wise.

Actually, that's a good point. I would have preferred if they dropped the Goldwing in the name as well...

I think it looks pretty bada$$. If I were into baggers, I'd have a look at one.
