I don't own one, and considering what they cost, most likely never will. But I am seeing a lot of posts about people having all sorts of problems with their GL1800s. I find this somewhat disconcerting. considering what these bikes cost (over $20,000 new, my boss paid $23,000+ for his) and considering that none of these bikes are very old, I wouldn't think they would be having problems. I know I would be plenty upset if I had spent that much money on a bike, and had problems so soon. Goldwings are supposed to be the most reliable bikes ever made. I have not really looked into it, just saw all the posts. Are these bikes really that unreliable? I can understand it with the 1200s and older, these bikes have been around long enough to have been abused, poorly maintained, and just plain worn out.
