So what do you all think about the new Goldwing F6B?

For those who want a look at it. Guess you would call it the semi cruiser look.

I agree with the Doc, I like the trunk, and use it more than the side boxes.
That thing looks like a cross between the Wing, & Valcree (know that's spelled wrong)
Looks like the backrest would be too short even for my Grandaughter.
I finally got a full windshield and don't like that short one.
Oh well I won't be getting another Wing for a while.
Thinking about another Nighthawk.

I'm glad I got mine when I did.

They should have called it the "Honda Davidson Harleywing". But it may grow on me. I just wish they would have updated the present platform instead of going this way.

Pretty Funny! But after 18yrs of doing Anesthesia I can say that it really depends on which type of wart you're taking about. Nevertheless this bike may be a seller for Honda. Four of my die hard Harley friends already called to say how much they like this bike.
I don't think I'll have a need for it. I bought my Goldwing to move UP from that platform..

The base model doesn't have a center stand or self canceling turn signals? What's up with that? Even my first Honda 90 scrambler had a center stand in 1968. Do these things cost so much that it's prohibitive to include on a $20K bike? So they need to charge another grand for them? Who thinks these things up, anyway?
I guess the self canceling turn signals aren't really necessary. After all, nobody here in Florida much uses them, and around Boston where I spent most of my life, if you see a car with a turn signal on you can be assured it left the dealership that way.
