The 1800 has always turned too many rpm at highway speeds. I'm always subconsciously wanting to shift one more time. The engine seems to have more than enough torque to allow another 500 rpm drop with one more gear. It would probably increase fuel mileage as well. Anybody else feel that way?

It also seems time to develop an intercom system that requires no cords.

I'm hoping that Honda of America is reading the posts. In lieu of a big redesign of the bodywork, they could throw us the six-speed tranny and wireless intercoms. Those two items could be very good for sales for at least one more year before a redisn to the body. Anybody else agree???

I would'nt mind the extra gear, but i want a gear indicator aswell, now the cordless intercom would be a big bonus, and should be easy enough now with Bluetooth technology....

Congratulations on purchasing your Goldwing. You will love it. I'm hoping that Honda will see and hear our pleas for a sixth gear. And after several years of ownership, I KNOW owners would appreciate a wireless intercom. What about it, Honda? Are you listening? :action:

I would really like a 6th gear and wireless intercom. I like the idea so much, that I would trade-in my 2007 wing and buy the new model.

I researched a bluetooth wireless headset. I was told by a knowledgable source that bluetooth will not provide the fidelity which historically has make the GW's sound system superior to the competition. BLuetooth is fine for voice comm like intercom and cellphones but inferior for music. (I'd be happy to be wrong on this if someone out there knows more than I do or if I have wrong information.)

I'll stay with the wire if thats what needed to keep the superior sound quality.
