Well, I have an 04 gl1800 that I love. It's my daily rider and I couldn't be much more happier with it. I do agree on the CB being standard and the weight issues, but I've ridden 2 up with full bags and didn't notice much of a difference in the bike. I'm 6' 200LBS and I've given my dad a ride a few times with no problem, however I know that I've stressed the "weight limit" on the bike and that I do so every time I ride 2 up. The available room is not an issue for me, but then again I went from a 80 suzuki gs1000 to my wing and the suzuki had a considerable amount of room, but it didn't have any of the creature comforts that my road couch does. I could see a 6th gear though because 3k rpm at 70 really is high. It would improve MPG as well as reduce wear and tear on the moving parts.
There really is nothing like riding on a wing.
Total Bike Miles: 106,000+ wing miles and counting.
Current rides: 04 GL1800 (my baby), 14 Yamaha Star Bolt
1980 Suzuki GS1000, USS Louisiana Gold (SSBN 743)
