I have owned a 5 Honda's, including a Goldwing 1200 and an 1800. Both were outstand rides. The down size is the suspension is just weak, ride pass a semi or a pot hole and you think of a after market fix. This can cost up to $3,500. The plus for the Goldwing the engine is bullet proof, audio sucks. I put 155,000 miles on the 03, sold it for a good price. The RG 2017 is turning 50,000 miles and enjoy the ride much better for long touring. The only thing that is missing the reverse feature with the Wing for parking on a incline. If that was available I would trade the 2017 for a new RG. Not interested in an after market add-on.
