  • Hello from Holland

    Hello, my name is Harry Nelissen from Venray in the Netherlands and 60 years old.

    I am a Goldwing driver since 1979 and have had all variants since then and I am waiting now for delivery of my 2018 DCT/Airbag which should be delivered this or next week and I will trade my 2013 Airbag. This will be my 37th Motorcycle and 25th GoldWing.

    I drive a lot, now even more that I am retired and mainly on backroads through Europe and North Africa and sometimes also off the tarmac.
    For this reason I also have a Honda Africa Twin CRF1000 which I will also upgrade this month to a DCT version. For back to basis driving and memories I also own 2 GoldWing 1000 LTD's, one in the European version and the other American version, both in very good condition.

    Like with every new model GoldWing, I expect also this first year for the new 2018 bikes there will be some initial problems, which Honda will solve as I have experienced in the past.

    I look forward to read other GL1800 2018 rider experiences and tips and introduction of usefull accessories (my chrome days are over a long time ago).

        I'm kind of envious that you have not 1 but 2 76 LTD's
        I'd like to see your Gold anodized trim GL1000 LTD's. (Please post a pic or two.)
