You gotta hand it to Honda for bringing truly new models to market. I was a bit surprised by the Goldwing chopper....reminds me of those old Mercury chopped hot rods....I really like it, and I bet it would be a great bike to cruise around on, or go on a long long ride.
A better description would be Goldwing Street Glide
HD's Street Glide gets a lot of attention from posers who don't really want the full blown Electra Glide. Looks as if Honda wants some of that kind of attention too.
As for me, it would be considered heavily if I were in the market. I've heard so many times from friends that the GW was too much bike for them at this point in their life. Always looking for something without the "kitchen sink".
I think this is Honda's way of meeting them half way.
