I think I had chrome on front and back with gold on the sides; maybe they were gold.... ...I can't find a good picture. It's an '04, of course.
I removed the front and back crap...
Which lettering did you mean?

What about '06? The "HONDA" emblems front & rear and the "GOLDWING" emblems on the sides of my '06 are chrome.

Excuse my stupidity. This post has been changed to reflect the facts! :a13:

That's really strange. Suppose Honda just used up the remaining chrome ones from the Anniversary Model?

Color according to body color? My bike is Black and was mfg'd 06/06.
Maybe the Gold plating just peeled off and left a silver finish...after all, you know that Black is the fastest...

I have a riding buddy who has a Dark Red '06, I'll check his the next time I see him.

Now you've got me looking and scratching my head...

My gold 2006 has chrome. I thought the gold plating was dropped for the 2006 models - that was talked about here when they came out. Maybe they had leftover gold plated stuff for Red's?

I Lied! :oops:

I actually walked out before I posted the first time to check. They were gold then. LOL... I just went out to double check. They are chrome now. Duh! Sorry! :roll:

What do you expect? I'm blind in one eye and have one heck of a time with the other. It is confirmed. My bike is a '06. It's drk red and the emblems are chrome. :wink:

Next question. Aren't the emblems on the '06 different in design than the earlier models?

What's the world coming to:

Goldwing badge now silver instead of gold.

Tail lights that don't match.

No more yellow 1800's.

No recalls in the past two years.

Air bags models priced more then a Honda compact cage WITH ABS, a air bag, and airconditioning.

World's going to the dogs I tell'ya.

I don't know ... I'd say those are good things. And we need to take the good with the bad. :)

Sorry, I was asking about the Honda emblem on the front, the Honda on the trunk and the goldwing emblems on the side(s).

My '03 has the gold emblems everywhere.

I'm not picking up a pattern here. Am I missing it?

Badge Colors

My '04 Flare Red wing has black chrome badges. This bike color was the only '04 with black chrome and a carbon fiber pattern on the seat sides.
