I was thinking more of what BMW has had on its boxers for years.  Still, it shows Honda is thinking of ways to reinvigorate the Goldwing.

Honda recalls 145,000 motorcycles; rear brakes can drag

Looks like Barry is safe   :P

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Honda is recalling over 145,000 motorcycles in the U.S. to fix dragging rear brakes that can cause a fire or crash.

Documents posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration say it's the third recall for some of the motorcycles.

The recall covers the GL1800 model from 2001 through 2010 and 2012 through 2015. Also affected are the GL1800A from 2001 through 2005 and the GL1800B from 2013 through 2015.

Honda says the brakes can drag after being released by the rider. In 2014 the company had reports of eight small fires.

Dealers will replace two brake master cylinders. No timetable has been set for the recall. It was unclear if Honda would offer loaner motorcycles.

Some of the bikes were recalled in 2011 and 2014 for the same problem.

Such a strong endorsement:
 Itís perfectly capable at being a motorcycle, but doesnít do anything well enough to really pick it over anything or for it to have any real strengths. Think of it like the kid picked second or third to last in lunchtime sports.
