Al Lamb’s Dallas Honda: 2014 Honda Gold Wing GL1800 F6B
Al Lamb’s Dallas Honda - With the Gold Wing 1800 F6B, Honda took the world’s best touring motorcycle a step further. Around the legendary liquid-cooled flat-six is a touring machine that’s lighter, trimmer and leaner. And with a lower overall weight, you can expect even more performance. The radical new bodywork features a sleeker fuselage while still delivering the impressive engine and superior handling that make the Gold Wing one of Honda’s top-selling motorcycles.
The F6B sports designed-in luggage, including twin-integrated saddlebags with 11 liters of storage each – both lockable and sealed to protect against the elements. A lower windscreen protects riders from the wind and weather by redirecting wind up and over the rider. Plus, it delivers a dependable – and linked – braking system. The F6B, like the GL1800, gets dual front 260mm rotors and three-piston calipers and a rear 316mm disc.
Experience the innovations of the F6B, known affectionately as the Honda Bagger, for yourself and take it for a test run at Dallas Honda. This is a touring machine that’s perfect for a lazy cruise along a winding road or short trips around town. Settle into the rhythm of the road with the easy maneuvering, smooth operation, exhilarating acceleration and utmost reliability of the Gold Wing 1800 F6B.
