Very interesting reply Bill. This is a first report on two up that I have seen, my Honda Canada guys all did solo rides.
To my Canadian friends, demos are going to be few and far between up here, there will be a big shortage of units in Canada until at least August. I hope I'm wrong on this, but my DSM says it's real. I've spoken with one of the bigger dealers in Edmonton and he's worried about not having a unit to demo. Not even sure if the demo tour from Honda Canada will have any but if I find out I'll be sure to let everyone know.

2018 Honda Goldwing and the World Beyond Ride Review

Below is a link to the Honda Dealer Demo page. If you look on the right there is a drop down men under the heading "Find a Demo Ride Dealer". Choose Gold Wing, then choose the State, another drop down appears and you choose the city.


As of now there are only a handful of States listed, and a handful of Dealers, but as Honda receives commitments from dealers they will update the list I am told.

For those using Tapatalk or possibly other mobile apps. It will be necessary for you to select the “View Full Site” option on the page that opens. I just tried it and after choosing Full Site it took me to the correct page.

Maybe its a matter of semantics:

Wasting time on a motorcycle seems to me, more productive than working...assuming the purpose of life is to evolve.

Seems that we have several members here who have the new 2018 Wing ordered and even a new member who has one on it’s way.

It will be good to get more feedback from them as they get their hands on their bikes.

I have already started seeing ads from dealers on craigslist for the 2018 wing, no big deals, but the arrival dates are getting closer. I hope there will be one near me to look at soon.
