Hi Guys,

My current ride is H-D Heritage Softail which I’ve owned for nearly 7 years. Before that I had BMW K1600GT, Yamaha FJR1300, Honda ST1100, Honda Blackbird, Suzuki 750, plus a few others.

I’m now looking for a bike which will possibly be the last bike I buy. It needs a fairing and heated grips etc. to cope with the crappy British weather and it needs to be very reliable and comfortable. I’ve been looking at Honda Goldwing, BMW RT, Harley-Davidson Ultra Ltd. All good bikes in their own right. But I’m edging towards a new 2019 model Goldwing B (manual/non tour) I don’t need the top box and prefer the blacked out look.. I’ve had nearly 7 years of chrome, I now want something easy to clean.

Here in UK this model is not available with DCT (has to be manual) and has to be black or matt grey. Thats not a problem, apparently the manual is easier to work on, change oil, etc. So cheaper servicing. There’s also no electronic suspension and no tyre pressure psi display, these I can live without. The biggest negative thing I’ve seen it mentioned that this model has no traction control. Surely this can’t be right? Even basic BMW’s have it.
