I just got a 2012 GL1800. Is there someone in the GTA who is a Goldwing expert and does good work?

Congrats on your new ride. I have heard that Markham Outdoor Power has a good reputation. Maybe join us for a RTE. Good food great people.

When you find a good mechanic, stick with him no matter where he moves to. It's the mechanic, not the shop, that does the good work.

I do all of my own work so I can't help you with a good mechanic. I think that GP Bikes is reputable but they are nopt Honda dealers, if that makes a difference.

Ready Honda in Mississauga.They had a red one and was told that only 50 2012 models are coming to Canada this year, that's hard to believe. Dealer in Bowmanville has a red one too (i.e. no airbag) but no test rides allowed. Ready Honda let me test ride a 2010 GW.

Thanks for the tips. I'm hoping to find someone great in Toronto, so I can drop it off and head to work or home and not have to sit there all day waiting for it.

I don't doubt the 50 number. The 2 bigger dealers here don't have a 2012, and they didn't sound like they were going to get one from my phone conversation a couple of weeks ago.

They still have a couple of 2010's (although one dealer sales guy said it was a 2011 hahaha), I think one dealer was down to 24K$ on his.The other one said his was going on sale.

I figure I will have to go out of province if I want to see a 2012.

The one at Milton Honda had a price tag of $29,995 so I suspect that it was a loaded one.

In Canada, we only get 2 models; ABS, GPS, Radio/ipod in Red, and all this plus airbag in Blue. (In US speak, that's a level 3 and level 4)

In the US, they have 4 models, and each one is available in 4 colors.

I know Peter, he's done some work on my previous bikes. If he's familiar with the Goldwing, I'll talk to him. Thanks for the tip.
