I just saw a few U.K e bay listings for the new 2014's. They are priced to sell at 24,999 LBS., which converts to 41,000.00 US!!!!!

Yes, list price for a new 2014 Goldwing is £24999.00 but as we British have got obscene amounts of disposable cash we can easily afford what is small change to us.
Also we feel that £1.28 for a litre of unleaded petrol is stupid cheap and we are robbing the treasury of much needed cash to fund our fantastic network of immaculately maintained traffic free roads, so much so we look forward to having toll booths installed on motorways on top of the road fund licence (tax) we already pay.
Its not called "Rip off Britain" for nothing you know, and that's why we love it here and the government knows it ;-)

$17500 that's around £10500 which would be a fair deal for an 05 here, a dealer recently had a U.S model with 30000 miles on a 04 plate for £12500, bargain. :)

the wife wanted to know why it is so expensive? I told her that it is a right hand drive. I started to laugh and then she hit me. I am still laughing.

Yes, I enjoyed my time over there. I was paid in US dollars, and had to pay for everything using pound sterling. When the exchange rates would go up, my disposable income would plummet.

Regarding the prices of Wings over there - welcome to the land of value added tax and socialized everything. Coming to a country near you (as in here) soon.
