Chap on a Gold Wing came riding with us on Sunday and he was holding impressively hi speeds with seeming ease...floating down the highway like a Volvo bus!
This one has a 1500 cc opposed 6.

Wasn't the earlier version of the Gold Wing a 1500?

I'm not quite sure but I think it was. They upgraded it to the 1800 later which is also used by the Valkyrie Rune.

Ah, it's coming back now: the early Wing had a 1500 cc 4 cylinder job, and they upgraded to a 6 later. Have you ever ridden her? Must be some experience.

Totally agree with you.Its all about the cruisers in the US. Be it a Harley or a Roadstar,its the most popular style of bikes.
