  • What are we calling this new bike???

    Just wondering what folks are preferring for the shorthand name for the new 2018 Honda Goldwing and Honda Goldwing Tour....Here's what I've seen so far...

    1. GL1833
    2. 18GW (my fave)


    Others??

      I think jmjohn started the 1833. 18GW and 18GWT makes sense to me until Honda sorts it out.

            Right now I'll just call it a pretty expensive toy especially once you accessorize it, Not knocking the folks that are going to buy one and I hope all of you enjoy it.

              I like GL1833. It shows Honda went the extra cc over the GL1832. 1/6th of a cc per cylinder.

                Wing and FB6. We, riding buddy and I, got tired of trying to figure that out, so we decided to just leave as we know it. Works for us.

                      How about ST 1800. For certain it isn't a GL.

                        How about 2018 Gold Wing. What did you call older Gold Wings?

                          Rocky, all true Sir. I was just saying that we will naturally come up with some shorthand moniker. For example, I am purchasing a Honda Goldwing Tour DCT, but instead of typing all that out, I think most people would know what I meant if I said "GWT DCT"....just looking for the 'standard shorthand' which apparently there is none.

                            I wish Honda would make up their mind. Is it Gold Wing or Goldwing? All of the press materials refer to Gold Wing, but on bike and in the logo it is "GOLDWING"

                                  With the prices I've seen mentioned for "accessories", they'd probably charge you $100 for that little space between the Gold and the Wing!
