O.K., some guys must think the world is full of idiots. Check out this '99 Anniversary Edition SE:
Looks like a nice bike BUT, if you read the specs it says it has a 6 speed transmission
. So you say that it must be a typo and the guy just didn't catch it. Then you look down at the Q&A and someone asks him about it. Now this is a guy who claims he's been riding this bike for 4 years. Replies that he doesn't (maybe can't?) count the number of gears when he's driving. Just clicks through the gears and drives. Really? Honestly!? Come on, just admit the mistake and move on.
I would be surprised if this guy is a fellow member. Should know better.
In his defense, I checked out the Total Motorcycle site he referenced and it does say the Goldwing has a 6 speed transmission. Just goes to prove you shouldn't believe everything you read. What's that I read about Cousin Jack getting a divorce? Hey, Red, interested in a younger man? Just bring the Miata.
