Congrats on the new bike. Looking to get one but I need to test drive it first, which has been tough going. But I’m still trying.

Thank you friends for all good wishes.
İ really loved the new wing. But the old gl1800 iş great anyway.
İ think the mail difference between two bikes are the Wind and the feel of speed.
On gl1800 when i cruise on 160 km/h speed on the highway i always felt like i am making 90 km/h so smooth and confident.
But on the new bike even at 140 km/h it feels fast.
İ think wind makes this difference.
The windshield is narrow and wind hits my shoulders and arms.
İ think i will Order an aftermarket shield from USA which is larger.
The other minus iş luggage Space of course but there is nothing to do with it. Luggage rack iş the only Solution.
The Last Thing i dont like iş the music Volume. Ön gl1800 when i speed at 180 km/h i did not ise the Whole Volume at 30 unit. İt was so loud but on this bike at High speed i miss some of the notes even the Volume is Set to Maximum.
İ will try upgraded amph and speakers.
Beside these minuses i can not find Ä fault about New bike.
Ride iş smoother New suspension feels great and much more comfortable, light weight makes the control like a scooter, Fuel economy iş great, apple car play is such Ä Joy, i dont need an external gps, on car play i use apple Maps Application and i have Ä nav Screen on the dashboard. Useful and elegant.

Well heck, Emir. I was going to ask about Apple Car play. As my daughter just bought a new Honda Pilot with Apple Car Play and she uses Apple maps with it. My old Note3 cell phone with google maps also show up on her display.
Oh and congratulations on the new Wing. May you get a lot of miles/kilometers out of it.

Congratulations on the new bike. I've been tempted by a test ride, but I'm afraid I would like it too much. maybe next year.
