f6b cruiser

got a chance to see 2 in person today........all black and a red/black.......at a small dealer about 40 miles east of my home. the pictures that i have seen on the computer do not do them justice.....in person they show a much lower center of gravity and profile..... dealer was allowing test rides on the red/black one.......i saw about 8 different test rides and everybody commented they loved it except for the short windshield(taller avaiable).....i declined a test ride because i was afraid of having to sell my 05 F model ..... .......personally i'm quessing that honda just might have a winner with this bike......price 19,000 for standard and 1,000 more for the upgraded option model........guess will have to wait and see........................ESKIMO

Still no cruise control. For that price you can get a cross country or street glide with cruise control.

The HDs I looked at today are in the 23+ range. I think the f6 is a loser hell some quick release on the glides trunk and you got the same bike basically. Maybe for those who are really squeezing to get a wing type bike.....IDK we'll see.

If I was just stuck on having to have a Honda I'd just get the GW for that money. I'm not impressed at all. As already mentioned though, for the money I would go for the Street Glide. I saw one at a dealer for a little over 20k.

$19,999 no cruise. South Bound Honda, Tacoma, WA.

Seat is too wide. Seating position is uncomfortable. Needs highway pegs off the line.

Good looking, but no.

I may be wrong, but isn't it just a Goldwing without the trunk? I haven't seen one in person but...just sayin'

I've seen them in person several times now and they're just not for me and I doubt they'll sell that many really. No one is fooled by a stripped GW pretending to be a bagger. Honda has abandoned the market and this won't help.

You make a good point about the wide seat though, the rear particularly looks like it's made for big butts.

They are more comfortable the the regular GW, but way too much black on them. They need more chrome! You can get a street glide with much more shiny and options for the same price.
