I would love to have a Silverwing in a 750-800, or even 1000cc size. I once owned a GL500 Silverwing Interstate, and it was a great bike, small and manageable, and perfectly capable as a solo touring bike, except the engine was too small. It turned way too fast at highway speeds, and sounded like it was going to fly apart. My Vulcan 750 v-twin turns a lot slower at those speeds.

I would also be interested in a 1000cc Goldwing Interstate, with the same basic engine layout as the original, and priced at no more than $15000.

The NC700 is a joke. I might be interested at half the price. Twelve grand for a 700cc twin? Not even Harley or BMW can get away with that.
