2018 Honda Gold Wing Tour - Favorites & Fails Video

Our favorite and least favorite aspects of Honda’s redesigned luxury touring motorcycle

We’ve toured on it, we’ve commuted on it, and we’ve even ridden it around a race track! So, after a few thousand miles of getting to know the full redesigned Honda Gold Wing, we have some strong feelings about what Honda has done with their flagship touring motorcycle. Time to queue up another episode of Favorites & Fails!

When you ride as many different motorcycles as we do it gives you good perspective on a given bike’s strengths and weaknesses. And whether you’re shopping for your next bike or just want to be in the know, it’s helpful to get an experienced rider’s opinion. So as a quick way to convey the highs and lows of the bikes we’ve been riding we came up with this new video series. Favorites & Fails is exactly what the name suggests, a concise list of the good and bad of the bikes we’re riding.

This isn’t meant to be a comprehensive evaluation or road test, just a candid snapshot, delivered with the same sincerity and honesty we’d show to a friend that wanted our opinion on a given bike. Hopefully you find it helpful or at least informative. Don’t agree with us, or have a motorcycle you want us to put through the F&F wringer? Feel free to chime in below in the comments section.
