Finally took delivery of my new 2018 pearl brown stallion DCT goldwing. It was a leftover model from a dealer several hours away. Couldn’t pass up the incredible deal. Now that I’ve got some seat time my obvservations are as follows. The seat height is a tad taller than the ctx mainly because the seat is wider. My feet still plant the ground but not as secure as the ctx. The wing is about 250 heavier. Even with the weight honestly it is so well balanced that it isn’t an issue for me. All the gadgets and gizmos and technology is insane on the wing. Cornering and turns the wing takes them like being on rails. So smooth and controllable. Straight line riding the wing doesn’t wander at all like my ctx would. The acceleration of the wing is insane. But at lower speeds when coming off a stop at a stop sign etc, the throttle on the wing is so sensitive that you can really get your self into trouble if your not careful. Just a slight blip and this bike lunges. Even in the lower modes like economy and rain mode when it de tunes the throttle it sill is touchy. All in all it’s a dream come true bike for me. Has everything I could ever want, the price was right, and I can go anywhere no matter the distance and feel comfortable.
