I was at the dealership the other day checking on recalls on my triple and I looked at the f6b and it started growing on me. I know the owners and they said I can take theirs for the day anytime I want. I went home thinking about it and then lack of cruise really bothered me and then it dawned on me that it also did not have abs, how foolish was honda on this one. If they had cruise and abs on that bike that probably would not be discounting them they would be selling them. Harley, Victory, Bmw, Ducati, the weestrom and many more have abs and harley, victory and bmw have cruise. What the heck was honda thinking. I can and probably will pick up a 2013 yamaha fjr, which has cruise, abs, traction control etc and will pay around 14k. easy decision.

They have that market covered with the standard Goldwing. The purpose of the F6b, is for those that want the stripped down version. The reason that the sales are slow, is that people that want a stripped down bagger, go for the HD Streetglide and those like yourself, that want more stuff, buy the bigger brother. It's not a bike for everyone and it fills an odd niche, but what bike is for everyone!

But they sure narrowed the market by the exclusion of abs and cruise. especially abs because that can be a deal breaker. At twenty grand the use of "stripped down bagger" isn't the most accurate of statements.

Our local dealer has it discounted down to $17,000. I'm going to wait for the Valkyrie as well.
