I just picked up my new 2012 Goldwing. What is the setting most people ride on? On a previous posting someone said you should ride on 25 all the time?

Not sure it applies since '12 is supposedly different suspension and what not, but anyway solo I ride with it on 7 and 2 up is 17.

The settings stated above make no sense if the weight of rider and passenger are not posted.

The highest I ever had my bike set at was 11, two up and fully loaded for a weekend out, I weigh 153lbs and the wife 120lbs at most.

Usually 5-8 just two up, no gear, 8 feeling a bit stiff and used only for playing on the twisties.

The numbers are only reference points so that you can duplicate settings. Afraid you'll have to figure out what #s work for you on your bike. The numbers for me on my bike don't compare.
