    2018 & Up Goldwing Board
    I'm flying to Los Angeles on Tuesday, followed by an quick18 minute Uber ride, to the pay the dealer, and I will be ready to drive the brand-new 2018 standard DCT Gold Wing back to San Francisco. I've been drooling 😛🤪over the 2018 DCT for 2 years now, finally going to pull the trigger. Barely...

  4. 500 Mile 18 Tour DCT Quick Update

    2018 & Up Goldwing Board

  6. 2018 Goldwing DCT vs The Dragon

    2018 & Up Goldwing Board
    In February I sold my 2013 F6B and began my search for her replacement and although there are some good deals on F6Bs I really had my eye on the 2018 Goldwing.

    I used to ride a lot, logging 150,000 + miles up and down the East coast. Then I quit riding. Now it's 20 + years later, and I've purchased a Gold Wing DCT Tour, took refresher riding lessons, and plan to do some motorcycling again. Arizona has a long riding season, and there's LOTS of stuff to...

    I haven't posted in forever, but after having the opportunity to spend about 10 hours in the saddle of a Traxxion-equiped 2018, I figured someone out there might be interested in my impressions.
