It's big, heavy, and has more bells and whistles than any motorcycle ought to, but the Honda Gold Wing is also shockingly fun to ride fast. You probably won't comparison shop it against sportbikes any time soon, but trust me on this: the 'Wing, with its silky six-cylinder engine and low center of gravity, has a lot more fire in its belly on the open road than you would imagine.
So maybe the photo here is exaggerated for comic effect, but check out my Honda Gold Wing Long Term Report #3 to see why speeding with this nearly 900 pound behemoth can be such a blast.
