A Honda Goldwing is still the ultimate in touring machines. Still no reverse.

The 2006 Ultra Classic Electra Glide receives a number of updates. Most notably the revamped clutch is said to be up to 25% lighter to work meaning less head and wrist ache while slowly trolling through the inevitable traffic you will encounter.

The new Tour-Pak luggage system has been redesigned to be easier to use while also being more sturdy.

Excellent rider and pillion stereo controls. Also comes with a rider and pillion intercom headset - now there is definitely no escaping the wife!
