“1975 (first year) honda goldwing gl1000”

Written on: 31/03/2012

I bought this bike a little while back and before this i have always owned a v-twin engine motorcycle. I'm amazed with the power and the smoothness of this bike. No rattles or loud pipes just a quiet, comfortable motorcycle to go on a long trip or commute around town. I also love the look of it. Mine is a candy blue-green and it is in mint condition. I have complements on this bike all the time and for the price i payed it's very well worth it. i highly reccomend this bike to anyone who truly… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/06/2010

My first 1800 was an 04, and my first impression was great. However, after 18 months and 24,000 miles, the gearbox packed up. In that I lost 1st, 5th and reverse gear. Honda, despite the bike was still under warrantee would not honour the warrantee. I forked out £2,703.85 for the repair. Overall, the bike is a great machine, but Honda need to sort out the gearbox. My new bike 'clunks' when put into first. I've ridden all my life with many machines and necer experienced any gearbox… Read Full Review

“I own a 1975 Goldwing GL 1000. Bought it used 7 years...”

Written on: 09/02/2009

I own a 1975 Goldwing GL 1000. Bought it used 7 years ago and it still looks almost new, so it turns heads regularly. Have had several guys tell me it was their first bike and they'd love to have one again. It's turquoise blue & stock, without the bags & other accessories of later models. All I've added is a windshield, & I enjoy its smooth, quiet ride and unassuming powerful acceleration. First-year issue of this bike, so it has points, not electronic ignition. Plus it has manual, not… Read Full Review

“I have two early models of the Honda Goldwing, a 1976...”

Written on: 21/10/2008

I have two early models of the Honda Goldwing, a 1976 GL1000 LTD and a 1979 GL1000 that I have owned for more than 20 years. This early model is among the best handling and quickest due to the much lighter weight, since Honda did not dress these early bikes. The 80 hp, 1000 cc opposed 4 cylinder engine has a great power curve, as well as very low vibration level, perfect for either cruising for hours at 80 mph, or commuting daily through town. The center of gravity is very low, due to low… Read Full Review

I'm currently looking at older Goldwings and information from owners beats magazine reviews by miles.

“I've owned motorcycles for over 40 years, but ridden...”

Written on: 20/10/2008 by OldGold (1 review written)

I've owned motorcycles for over 40 years, but ridden the same '79 GL1000 Goldwing for 27 years. I have found that with the GL's great 80 hp power curve, it has remained a perfect bike, whether commuting or riding all day at 80 mph. It's just heavy enough to manager any road conditions, but since this early model has no fairing, it fits into the current "naked" vintage style. She can ride easily with any of my sport tour friends in the Colorado Rockies' canyon curves, and easily out powers my… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/07/2008 by ad00s (1 review written)

Overall, It's a great bike with ultimate machine. However, would like to share a few of my suggestions.
Additional Features
1) Retractable Pair Of Wheels To Support The Bike Upright For Reversing or Moving Forward At Speed Below 20 Km/h 2) A Good Windshield Quality With Its Wiper 3) Better Reception For CB Communication With Smaller Earpiece. The above good and bad points are referring to GL 1500 SE model whereas the general comment is for both the 1500 and 1800. That's about all… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/07/2008 by marco999 (27 reviews written)

I owned a Honda Goldwing a few years ago it was an 1100cc model on a V plate (1979) I was at a time in my life when I believed (wrongly) that I'd grown out of sports bikes and needed something comfortable with which to tour on. I naturally went out an bought a 'wing' or 'Lead sled', or 'Aspencrate' or 'flying mattress' - there are so many nicknames for this enormously heavy mile cruncher which since it's introduction back in the mid seventies has grown bigger and fatter (like me) as the years… Read Full Review

Stuart Alford's Response to marco999's Review

Written on: 07/12/2008

I agree with this review because the Wing is awesome and will live on, despite my heart being lost totally to the 1200cc version in years to 1987 - still my favourite.
