In a sea of black Harleys people are always drawn to the unique and advanced looking F6b for some reason. I enjoy meeting the strangers who are genuinely interested in a bike style they rarely see but feel compelled to ask about. Then there's always that head snap back when you tell them it's a Gold Wing. Good times.

    Semper Fi!

    Glad to know mine isn't the only one getting love out there. Just yesterday two guys refused to believe that it was Honda muchless a 2015. I finally pulled out my owners manual to convince them lol.

    Convincing people that Isleen is a Honda has proven more difficult since I removed the two Honda badges from the front & rear. (They were difficult to clean around)
    So her only stock markings are "F6B" on the side panels and the itty bitty square Gold Wing logo between the Info & Trip buttons.
    I've told people it's a prototype electric Harley, I point to the folded Rivco pegs and explain that those are the positive & negative 'nodes.'
    Also, it comes with quasi-realistic exhaust noises.
    Too much fun!

    The general population is unaware that Honda makes motorcycles, generators, outboard motors, watercraft, go kart engines, aircraft engines, ATVs, SxSs, lawnmowers, and whatever else I am forgetting.

    For the record, the F6B as a model first got my attention in a GEICO commercial several years ago.
    Current ride:
    2013 F6B Standard, black; purchased 10/8/15
    Current mileage: 24,800
    Additions:
    *Angrystad, glovebox key knob, center stand, Tridium LED fog lights, foot wind deflectors, Ram mount, 12V fairing pocket, Baker wings, heated Corbin seat; keyless saddlebag release, Ergo IIIs
    Current Wish List (subject to change):Helibars or Kury risers, Garmin 595 GPS
    2019 Miles:
    40 as of 1/4
