  • Many goldwings for sale?

    I've noticed that there is alot of Goldwing riders trying to sell their bikes. This includes 2001 to 2014.
    This also includes trikes.
    Are riders getting too old to ride a Wing? Are Wingers tired of the same old problems, and BS Honda is handing out while increasing price?

    At this time of year in the Northern Hemisphere you will find a lot of Boats for sale as well - Age has nothing to do with it unless - The Reason is listed in the ad

      What?

      No, it's demographics. This is a four-year-old article; nothing has substantially changed since this was published.

        I have a Goldwing for sale (albeit somewhat halfheartedly) but only because I bought a new 2014. I plan to get serious about listing my 2010 for sale in March when spring and interest in motorcycles begins stirring again.

        According to the article about demographics I suppose I'm out of sync. At age 72 I have no plans to stop riding anytime soon unless I'm forced to.

        Weather websites are currently predicting a nice week of sunshine late next week and next weekend on the west coast so I'm planning to leave Saturday morning for California to ride the Pacific Coast Highway.

          Look at any make or model of vehicle that is mass produced and you will find lots of used ones for sale. It doesn't mean anything.

            It seems just as many Harleys are for sale as Goldwings. I agree with jmohme.

              Probably selling their bikes to pay for healthcare insurance costs. Mine has gone up more than $200 per month in the past 2 years.

                I was one of those statistics. I sold a 2010 HD Fatboy, 2011 HD Fatboy and a 2008 HD Street Glide with a DFT kit when I bought my Goldwing. All of them were paid for. I just decided to give up on Harley going water cooled on their touring bikes. I give up on air cooled pushrod engines for long distant riding.

                  I will turn 75 in June and so far I don't see an end to my riding. All we can do is keep our fingers crossed. Be safe and enjoy the ride. Larry

                      Honda sells lots of Gold Wings therefore lots of used Gold Wings are for sale. It's only numbers.
                      Try finding a used KTM 990 Supermoto T for sale, not many sold in the US so not many used ones are for sale and I'm not selling mine anytime soon.

                        I read number recently that noted nearly 700,000 Goldwings have been produced in 40 years. I could see a substantial turnover through the years of owners of these bikes.

                        The same that it probably is with most major motorsports equipment...

                                I am 77 have cut back on a lot of riding, not that I don’t want to ride that much. We got a RV now we trailer the bikes to the area we want to see then ride the bikes.
