After reviewing the video that was posted and seeing the bike...I am sure I will be keeping my Goldwing....
Funny they interviewed people who was paid by Victory to say how great the bike is....All but two worked the trade floor for victory...

Victory Vision

Thanks for the link...Rider Magazine Feb 2007 had an artists drawing of the yet unnamed tourer. Based on the drawing, I was anxiously awaiting the debut. After seeing the video I'm not nearly as interested...sharp lines and some odd shaping vs. the drawing. Don't think I'll be trading in the 04 anytime soon. Thanks again.

I'll have to take one for a ride and see how it is from the seat. That's what really matters. Personally, I doubt that it's going to be a big enough bike for me, though, based on their other bikes. Maybe the look will grow on me. I absolutely hated the first GL1800 I saw. I thought it looked like a scooter on steroids with all of that plastic. On top of that, the first one I saw was this bright, taxicab yellow. I remember thinking what an ugly combination of design and color that was. :?

To me, it looked like a Harley trying to disguise itself as a Goldwing, and doing an AWFUL job of it. Maybe it's just me, but I certainly can't get into that bike. No Way, No How.

That's the first thing I thought of....HAR(d)LEY Davidson....
the interviews just confirmed my suspicions.

Maybe for someone ELSE....it's a good one. Never in my driveway tho.

Saw a couple of them at the Cleveland Intl Motorcycle Show last weekend. Guess its one of those things, you either like it or wonder, WTF?? It wasn't too bad until the rear end came into focus. Yeeoowwwww!

I wonder what the damages would be if a cage bumped it at a stop light? Bad enough on a Wing if the plastic broke, but those pointy saddlebags sticking waayyy out there? Bet they ain't cheap.

WTF

I'd buy a Harley before I'd buy one, and as a winger, we all know what I think of Harley's.

looking at the front of the fairing I see what looks like a morphed 1500 fairing / head light

On the "up" side . . .

For those who have been whining for an automatic transmission on the Gold Wing, Polaris has made some pretty good progress with their large displacement (800cc) 4WD ATV's. Who knows, they might be the one's to break that mold!!
