I have a 2005 St and a 2012 Wing. This new 2018 Wing is really starting to make me think that it could replace both easily. Reminds me more of the ST than the '12 Wing! Can't wait to see one in person.

I remember when I could take a brochure home and look over all the options and be able to go back to the dealer when I was ready to buy and know what I wanted.

Shoot, I'm still waiting for my brochures on the 2018 off road lineup (ATV, SxS, etc.). I'll be very surprised if the 2018 Wing brochures show up by spring. Not sure about the USA, but Honda Canada does one time only orders and printings of brochures. What's really painful is I have no contact info to know for sure my order even got in. I requested a confirmation and received nothing back. Stuff like that worries me.

grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!

Yes, but was it for a 2018 Honda?

OK. The deed has been done. Deposit has now been put down on the 2018 Goldwing Tour, DCT, in Pearl Hawkseye Blue!.. I got a great price too. Shroader's Honda in Hendersonville, NC, I think on this model, $24957.00 is a good price when the MSRP on this one is $28,200. What do you guys think?

Congrats on the deal John, Can't wait to see the new machine in your pics. I can tell you from 1st hand experience that Blue is nothing less than stunning.

I am an old guy and need to know the ergonomics on the new wing before I could put any money down. I wouldn't want the position of the pegs any higher or further back than on my 2015. This is critical to us guys with knees that took too many hits when we were young, stupid, dirt riders. Also, the jury is out until I find out the situation on mounting cruiser pegs (a "must have").

not likely, you are loosing weight comparing wings but you are gaining weight comparing the new wing to the mighty ST and loosing fuel capacity
