    Stopped by a local dealer and saw some great new bikes including the new 2018 Goldwing, a new 2015 VFR that had a "sold" sticker on it (shocking!), a trio of African Twins, a new '16 Repsol SP marked down to $12,999 (tempting!), and a trio of 2017 1000RRs including an SP. Here's some pics, enjoy! :D

    Nice pics, I took out the Goldwing F6B and the Twin last year on the Honda ride day at a local dealer and was pleasantly shocked at how much I liked riding the twin and how much I didn't like the wing. Now the Goldwing model had the short windshield so the wind was in my face, can't understand why they have the short windshield. I was hoping to take the regular Goldwing out but it was not available. The Twin though was a blast to ride, comfortable seating (for a short ride at least) and hugged the corners so much better than I was expecting. If there were no more VFR's available I think that the Twin would be my choice.

    Shame they are all sitting in a row in the showroom and not out and about on the road.

    Agreed - when I saw the poor Fireblades all lined up at the window it kind of reminded me of my dog when she stares out the window hoping to go for a walk :D

    I would love to test ride one - the RWB version looked amazing. It was very comfy to sit on but not the easiest bike to swing a leg over especially with all the grab handle cargo contraptions or whatever they are on the back.

    The second pic of the front of the Wing, it looks kind of like a Beemer with that engine.
    Then the next pic they have a frigging joystick or whatever.
    It's supposed to be a bike, I don't need no stinking infotainment system.
    The whole bike is supposed to be an entertainment system, and the sound system is the exhaust.

    It was hard to swing a leg over, the real fun came when we started riding and I couldn't find the foot pegs and actually had to look down to see them. My foot was high by about 8 inches. It felt like you just had to barely lift your foot off the ground to put it on the pegs.
    Getting back onto the VFR after though..... almost felt like I had to lift my foot to my ass to get it on the pegs, really felt like a sport bike then.

    I do like the Wing. If I could ever get the wife to join me on the bike, I would get one in a heart beat. But that will never happen. SOOOOOO! If I ever do replace the bitch I have (the bike) then it is likely to be another VFR. Possibly the twin.

    The VFR only comes in White and red correct? Too bad. I have done the white thing and don't care for red. I wold love to get a black one. Or cobalt blue. Shocking!

    LOL - thanks for clarifying :D

    Yep, only red and white for the 8th gen in N. America. Black and silver are also available but only in overseas markets. If you like blue there's a custom blue one for sale in Michigan, but it's more of a smurfberry blue than a cobalt blue :D
