I LOVE MY 06 GL1800 ABS!!!! I could love it more and this is how. My 03 had NO lighted controls on the hand controls, my 06 does, BUT why aren't my heated hand grips and heated seat controls lighted as well and what about my info, display, and etc buttons. Why are they not lighted. Perfect example of a great idea fallen short of complete. I LOVE my navigation system. Why does it not include XM Radio. Honda is a major owner of XM. The parts are all there. Harley has it. What about Bluetooth headset. Yes I know it has its own forum already but Harley has it as well. I am NOT a Harley fan, but is Honda not Japanese, the land of technology?? So why let HD get all the goodies electronically speaking. These would all be great finishing touches.

It's called planned obsolescence, if the included everything in one year of bike where is the incentive for you tospend another $20,000.00 ona new bike in 3yrs or so. It's all dollar driven.

No question A.T.G.A.T.T. (Even when it's stinking hot!!)
And if it's too stinking hot to gear up, it's too stinking hot to ride.

If your not man enough to take the lead, stop complaining from behind.
