Raffle bike picture
« on: February 10, 2019, 09:24:44 AM »
Don't want to nit pic but.............The picture of the raffle bike on the website is a 2017 Wing. Not a big deal though the raffle bike is the next generation of Goldwing and is a much different bike. I was just so proud of myself for finding the "what's wrong with this picture", LOL.
Just sayin', TM

Darned if you aren’t right.  Never noticed it myself (not being a Goldwing person), but side by side there are some differences in the way it looks.
not all that wander are lost

Another small correction should be made. 
Honda does not produce a Goldwing.  But they do make a Gold Wing.

Gee, makes me wonder...what is the raffle bike??  Incorrect photo and name.  Or is this a bait a switch??  We will have to wait and see what the winner really gets.  I may buy extra raffle tickets and hope that I win this rare cycle.  LOL

The picture I put up originally WAS from Honda's website but apparently I got an old picture.

Yep, that's the ones. Make mine the red one please! Goldwing, GoldWing, Gold Wing. A ride by any other spelling or trade mark, tm.

I'd probably be willing to sell a couple of older bikes to make room for something like this in my garage.


As far as the name of the bike...Gold Wing vs Goldwing...when I did a Google search for pictures, I entered 2019 Gold Wing. Google asked Did you mean:2019 Goldwing


When looking at a video of bike features, a couple of places on the bike it looks like one word. But I believe the correct name is two words.

Even though we all know that the internet is ALWAYS correct, I would still go with the spelling that is on the Honda site as well as on the bike it self.  LOL
We really don't want to upset Honda with the deal that they are giving us.  At least I heard it was a good deal.

I can't image any MSTA member not buying raffle tickets or refusing to accept the bike if they won because it was a Gold Wing not a Goldwing (or the other way around, I'm getting confused already). (grin, chuckle)
