Now it its 33rd year of production, the legendary Gold Wing remains the gold standard of luxury touring, thanks to satellite navigation, a premium audio system, a cold-weather comfort package, an industry-first fully integrated airbag and unrivaled performance. 2008 Honda Gold Wing Comparing H-D Ultra Classic, BMW LT and Honda Goldwing, the ’wing is the correct choice for any real rider. I can’t believe the way this thing handles! To be more precise, it handles like a dream with power to spare. It is truly the last bike you need. I loved the way the bike did everything I needed and more. The bike is smooth, quiet and sails along effortlessly. Although a bit of a monster at slow speeds, once underway the bike seems to move with the grace of a race horse at full gallop. With the comfort package, the heated grips and seats make the wing seem more like a luxury sedan than a motorcycle. The seat is much comfortable than any other cruiser. You ride for 5 hours and you still keep up. This has been the best bike I have ever ridden. I was surprised with the speed & quickness of this Gold Wing. Balanced so well that sometimes feet not needed on stops or hands on bars unless you want them, and even non-stop to 181 miles in 3.25 hrs in stop & go traffic jams. I could have never done this on any other machine. The audio system is user friendly and the sound quality surprised me. Despite the fact that I’ve been told before about the insignificant part of the navigation system( „Columbus was able to use a map, so we will too :P” ), I found the navi system very functional and useful. And I liked that. However, I have two complaints to write down: the first one is the position of the foot pegs. You’ll need to get yourself some hi-way pegs and that should remedy it. The second complaint is about the high pitched whine while the bike is at idle and at lower speeds. You don’t hear it above 25-30 mph. It is not nerve racking, but I do find it somewhat irritating.
