Description

By: Phil West .

GOLD WING. Two little words that together identify not just a motorcycle, but a whole sub-culture of bikers and a fabulous era of motorcycling. To many thousands of devoted fans the Gold Wing has been the Rolls-Royce of motorcycles for over twenty-five years. And that dominance shows no sign of waning.
When the first Wing, the GL 1000, was launched in 1975 the motorcycling world had never seen anything quite like it. Since then the Gold Wing has grown through 1100cc, 1200cc, 1500cc and most recently 1800cc guises and added a mind-boggling assortment of luxury features to remain the world's best appointed tourer. Today the Wing remains virtually unchallenged, as the finest fully-loaded luxury motorcycle.
Here for the first time, Phil West tells the complete Gold Wing story, from the youth of Soichiro Honda and the evolution of the Honda Motor Company all the way through to a complete analysis and review of the latest machine. In between he charts the
development of every Gold Wing model and explains their differences and strengths. Throughout are many previously unpublished photographs of the machines and the men who built them.
For any Gold Wing owner or fan this book is an essential, comprehensive record of Honda's flagship machine – it's also a great read for anyone who's into bikes.
