as i've said before, i wanted a big ole fat dressed heavyweight. something akin to an old caddy on the road. i think of the GL1800 as a sports car compared to that "caddy" - not that there's anything wrong with that! i guess i expected a softer ride. any thoughts?

the 1800 is too sport bike looking to me. maybe honda needs a goldwing classic that looks simular to a 1500. i'm not saying do away with the current 1800 just add the classic to the lineup

I like the new wing. It is definitely a different ride than my 90 1500 but I don't find it harsh. My complaint with the 1500 was that it was too soft in the twisty parts so this new 08 fills that need nicely. When I am solo I run the rear at 4 and when I have my wife with me I bump it up to about 9 or 10. There are a lot of peg dragging curves here and I love the stable feel of this bike.
