The Honda Gold Wing has always been a popular motorcycle here in the USA offices. We’ve ridden them all over the country, but these big touring bikes had fallen off the radar for a few years. That all changed when Honda revealed a new and improved 2012 Gold Wing. We had our first taste of the bike during a brief day ride in Southern California a few months back but the folks from American Honda were keen to remind us just how great their luxury touring motorcycle is by dragging us to the east coast for a long, grueling ride through the Blue Ridge Parkway.

There’s big news when it comes to the new 2012 Honda Gold Wing. Because we’ve taken what is the world’s best touring motorcycle and made it even better. The new bodywork is the first thing you’ll notice, complementing what is the best engine and chassis package the touring world has ever seen. Look a little further and you’ll discover great new improvements to the audio system, the available navigation system, and the Gold Wing’s comfort, too. And there’s new functionality, as well, like integrated iPod® connectivity and the ability to upload trips to the navi system from your home computer. Find out more here –
For many years now the Gold Wing Road Riders Association, Georiga Chapter A have helped man a coffee break at a rest stop on I-75 just north of Macon, GA. On Saturday March 5th, they were there again – rain or shine. It was a little wet, but the key here is safety and accidents don’t take a day off when it’s raining, they get worse. Hundreds of people, both bikers and ‘cagers’ were offered coffee and snacks, just to get off the interstate for a short break to walk around and take a few minutes to chill.

From Cycle World –
Forgive us if you think we’re repeating ourselves, but we can’t help it: The 1800 Gold Wing has won the Best Touring award five years in a row and eight times in the bike’s 10-year existence. Not only that, in the 34-year history of Ten Best, Gold Wings of all sizes have topped this category 20 times. Yes, these bikes are that good.
The 1800’s ethereally smooth flat-Six delivers a bottomless well of stump-pulling torque that would do a Peterbilt proud, and the chassis offers a ride as plush as that provided by some cars. Toss in a great sound system, cruise control, heated grips and seat, adjustable windscreen, cockpit-adjustable headlights and rear-suspension preload—plus more than 75 accessories that include a navigation system, anti-lock brakes and even an airbag—and you get an over-the-road experience that nothing else on two wheels can match.
