Yeah.....I heard the same too. :claps::bow:In 1974, a team of Honda Engineers designed and built the first Honda Goldwing that was previewed at the Cologne show as a 1975 entry to the motorcycle world. Patrons of the show were amazed and began questioning one of the engineers as to what the motorcycle was named to which he replied, "GOAL LING"
And the rest is history.
No thanks is necessary.
That is correct. Remember also the GL500, GL650 (old Silverwing).Keep in mind that GL is not just a Goldwing notation. The Valkeryie also is a GL model. Which makes me lean towards the GL being an engine designation as they have the same style of engine.
I like JW's response though I wonder - as a Japanese company would GL actually stand for anything that translates into English properly?
My understanding is there isn't any official given reason for why GL was chosen.
