The color looks like the copper bottom of a cooking pot that needs to be brightly shined with copper cleaner?
I love the printed "this side up" for the challenged people who don't recognize how to park a motorcycle upright and don't notice the fork lift openings at the bottom!! We're SOL, if they can't read English!
If you have ever taken apart or replaced a crash bar you would see that it is a very robust place to strap the bike down. The front bars are bolted to the engine frame very tight. The rear bars are held on by 2 12MM bolts. I would do it the exact way they are. However, when that bike is transported like above sitting in the crate it is not subject to the rough ride like being on a trailer behind a car.
I kept looking at that photo and thinking something looked familiar and then I realized that it was Hatfield Motor Sports in Muscatine Iowa which is where I bought my 04. Sure is a great color. Maybe I will have to go for a look
Sorry for being uninformed, I've don't trailer (concept behind owning a goldwing), but if I was to trailer, where the hell else could I tie the bike down than by the crash bars ?
everything else is plastic or hidden
I really like that color. Almost looks like my 03 Candy Orange, but maybe a bit darker. Some of you guys might not like the Candy Orange and I know it's a love it or hate it color, but I have gotten many, many complements from people about the Candy Orange color.
Another thing about this color, at least with my 03 Candy Orange is the paint is very good with no flaws in my bikes paint and the paint is hard and resists scratches very well. You don't see any spider web marks or light scratches in the Candy Orange paint when it's in sunlight, like you tend to see in other darker colors such as black and the dark reds.
Thanks for the great picture. The decision to get an 07 Gold Wind has already been made. (900 mile weekend with the wife on the back of my Voyager did the trick.......hee hee ). I am just waiting to see all the colors before I choose one. I saw an 07 Silver being dealer prepped last Saturday. It was a beauty. Kind of like the Orange but I gotta see the Blue. My last one, an 86 Aspencade was blue and I am a bit partial.
