Yeah they have front forks that look like a big assed Harley along with a very fast accelerating 1000cc water cooled engine and mine had the Honda's add on fuel tank so you had the one under the seat Plus a double sided one in front of the seat..... Now I'm going to have to see if I can find the pictures of the one I had...... notice it said "had" and a Chain drive that was oh so easy to work on.

Up until last summer I rode a Suzuki GSX R1000 but several of the guys that I rode with had GoldWings and everyone, to a person loved them. I never heard a complaint [other than they could not keep up on acceleration with me].

I have toured the plant in Maryville Ohio and it is very nice. HOWEVER, big rumors are that they are moving GoldWing production back to Japan to make room for more Automobile production in the US. That is pretty fresh news.

So if you want a US built GoldWing, now would be the time.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
