Honda GL1800 Goldwing
The Honda GL1800 Goldwing came into the showrooms in 2001. Replacing the aging GL1500, it was lighter and faster, new frame, better brakes with ABS, it was now a genuine sports tourer as opposed to just a tourer. With it’s super smooth six cylinder engine together with all the extras including the AM/FM radio system, cruise control and an electronic reverse gear, it was now the ultimate touring bike. Police agencies in the USA took the GL1800 onboard their fleets straight away with San Antonio PD, Texas being one of the first to replace their fleet of aging GL1500s’. Goldwings are fitted up with a huge array of police accessories such as can be seen from the pictures of one of the San Antonio traffic units. Perhaps this might be the ideal police motorcycle to work all-day long on with it’s superior comfort as well as excellent handling.
