2018 Honda Goldwing Tour DCT Airbag
Crookster,I have probably told this before, but by the time I hit the age of 70, my 2008 was feeling pretty heavy trying to horse it around. Traded her for a 2018 last year and now at 72, I feel like I can ride on for many more years as it feels So So much lighter. I know technically it's only 70 or so pounds lighter but it feels 200 pounds lighter to me. It is much easier to move around and I have not yet felt like I might drop it. Some of you might consider the new gen if you want to stay on 2 wheels a bit longer.
Longer term, I see a nice trike in my future when this one gets too heavy!
I can't believe what I just read. Your statements about your '08, and your age, are almost identical to me. We had an '08 Level II for 10 years. It was a great Wing. But, it was sitting around more and more. It seemed it was getting heavier and heavier just to move around the garage when it was cleaning day. We'd not ridden nearly as much as we had ealier in life. So, being that I still liked to ride but the CEO seemed to be backing off some, I traded that 35,000 mile flawless '08 Wing in for a brand new, 2 year old '18 Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sports DCT.
Well, it's a long story but, we eventually also bought an '18 Wing Tour DCT Airbag with 5,300 miles on it. She really loves that bike and I'm infatuated with it. I think it's the best motorcycle I've ever owned and I've owned a gazillion of them. And you are so right in terms of how that new '18 feels just moving it around in the garage or slow riding it. It really does feel like it's considerably lighter than the '08. Oh, by the way, I turn the big SEVEN ZERO on Saturday. Man I'm old!
