Love my ‘18 Tour but... It does not like to track correctly when driven slowly on uneven surfaces. My gravel driveway has put my Wing down a couple times and off to the side a few more. I also have stopped as I exited a roadside rest area KNOWING I had a front flat tire. I didn’t. I had just hit a tarred concrete joint. My other bikes have never had similar issues in the same conditions. Thoughts?

What is your previous motorcycling experience?

Some tar snakes can be seriously squirrelly.

Straight as an arrow here and no, I wouldn't expect any motorcycle to be perfect on gravel, not even my GSA with or without knobbies.

I have a gravel driveway about 600 feet long with one sharp curve in it. The Wing doesn’t like it, but I don’t expect it to because it’s out if its element. My Harleys and ST1300 did not like it either. I just relax, lean forward a little, keep my head and eyes up, and have no issues.

I have a gravel driveway and don't feel any difference between this 2018 and my old 2003 Gold Wing.

What ride mode are you riding in? If it is SPORT put it in TOUR for gravel

Please have your steering head bearings and linkage checked. You may have a mechanical defect.

Consider adding a layer of recycled concrete to fill in between the larger (1"+) gravel. It will really make a difference for very few $$.

I live on a mile long dirt road with some of it soft sand. This bike is no different than any of my others. In fact I think it handles better if I dont sweat it and let the size and weight carry it through.
