Not bad for a disposable Jap bike. What kind of power do the new Wings put out, anyone know?

Not my cup of tea, but honestly, it looks better than the reg gold wing or a Vision.

I'd like to see one it person. Not to buy, but just to better judge it.

I don't mind the look. Better looking than Victory. I bet it rides smooth as hell. Don't care for the way the saddlebags open though. Seems annoying. Wonder if they'll come up with a quick detach tour pack system like Harley's.

Now that's funny!

Honestly... that's not a bad looking ride. I bet that's a smooth powerful SOB that'll run forever, too. Nice job, Honda!

Of course, I like my RG better, but I can give credit where credit's due.
