Pretty impressive. Still sounds like a Singer.

It's three days ride from Bakersfield and I don't know why I came.
I guess I came to keep from payin' dues.
So instead I've got a bottle and a girl who's just fourteen & a damn good case of the Mexicali blues.

I'm a lifelong motorcycle enthusiast and like it or not, Honda makes a great motorcycle. Would I buy one? Not a chance. I remember (historically) Pearl Harbor.

It looks way better than the standard Goldwing. I would not mind taking one for a spin (for research purposes only). I cannot see myself swapping the RG for one.

It kind of makes me think of a CBR in his retirement years. All grown up with saddle bags.

There used to be a piped Valk around Bangor.
That one sounded like an Indy car when he come on to it.

I like it. Nothing wrong with Honda's. Had a bunch of Honda motorcycles, have a CR-V and a Ridgeline. All were and are flawlessly reliable. Massive technology in that company across the divisions.

And the stuff has about as much soul as a plastic bag.
Highly functional, but just doesnt speak to me like a Harley or a GTO or
an old Chevy p/u does when you get in or climb on.

I think it looks pretty good, I would buy one if I didn't already have an ST1300.

Definitely copying the RGC, even to the shaded color scheme.

Looks great for a Honda, I would like to take one for a spin.
Still no floorboards though. WTF?

I admit that Honda makes great engines but it will never be a Harley. I might feel different once HD goes water cooled but at this stage in the game there's no comparison. Also, unless Honda has made some major changes it won't handle like a Harley. Gold wings are nice for going down the highway but they're crap on the twisties.

A couple of years ago when I hung out on the Big Dog Forums, Honda came out with the Fury. Everyone was talking about how Honda was going after the custom bike market. I've see 2 Fury's in 2 years.

Bottom line (for me), Harley people are Harley people and we're not going to buy a Honda or Victory, or Yamaharley.

Just my 1/2 cent!
