I was informed from honda upon bying my new wing that i would recieve a special gift from Honda Australia to say thanks for the purchase. Well it came and its a fine gift indeed, it goes well with my new wing. I was wondering if you guys have the same thing in the states.

You must have bought the super deluxe model. All I got was the papers to sign for my loan from Mother Honda. Along with a "Laural and Hardy handshake". Nice gift. Maybe I'll go buy another Wing just for the lovley gifts....

We get a FREE 1 year subscription to Honda Red Rider Club, you get a magazine, that about it. It used to cover road side towing but they away with that now. That is a very nice gift you got but for what you pay for a new gold wing over there you better get something nice.

Joe thats exactly right, i paid $40,000.00 Aus thats about $36000.00 US for the top model, i could have flown to the USA bought a new wing have it shipped back home and have a holiday at the same time.
Oh well its something, we are used to paying big money for anything over here with high interest rates to boot. :(

Congrats!

Oh, and all I got was a couple of t-shirts from the dealership. Now I feel like the red-headed stepchild! hehe

Not sounding nasty but i would have loved a hand shake or two and a "t" shirt and a $10,000 reduction on the price rather than the gift set. Oh wait i did get a handshake from a very happy salesman, oh well at least im happy riding the best bike in the world.

Good on ya Down Under, pretty nice set (ya gotta get something for your 10G's). Heck, my DSM whined about giving me a Honda hat. I patted myself on the back :cool:(oh the joys of selling to yourself) when I bought my Wing; I did get a nice hug from the Mrs. when I brought it home so that counts for something:D

From what i'm hearing this must have been a gift set put together from Honda Australia, no one else has recieved or been given one.
I guess they have to justify the extra $10,000 grand on the price of the bike. Maybe the watch is made up of gold parts and that makes up the difference, of course i should have realised it :eek:.
Now its off to melt down the watch and sell that gold and put the money on my loan :D.
Happy times.
Although it is a nice watch, naaaaaaaaaaa i'll keep it

As you can see, we consumers are not as appreciated here in the US. While I like my dealer he didn't even give me a t-shirt.
