We just got back home today from picking up my new red 2012 Gold Wind With Nav. at Southern Honda in Chattanooga, TN. Rode it back home to Cave City, KY. about 200 miles. All I can say is WOW!!! I had a 2008 with progressive front and rear springs and it rode great, but this new 2012 rides better!!! And seems to have more get up and go!!!!! Anyway, I love it, and I highly recommend anyone that is on the fence to just bite the bullet and get one! You wont be disappointed!!! Tim Obrien at Southern Honda was great to work with!!! A mile down the road and my wife said wow!!! what a difference! So she is happy, so that make me happy!!!!
