TRIKE REVIEW: Trike Conversion of Hondas 2012 Gold Wing

An ultimate touring machine on three wheels

The Honda Gold Wing is well known for the smooth ride and outstanding comfort it offers riders and passengers, making it arguably one of the best motorcycles for touring. But what happens when you add an extra wheel?

If you’ve ever been interested in riding the “Cadillac of motorcycles” with a bit of added stability—or if you’re simply curious about how triking a motorcycle affects the ride—check out Genevieve’s extensive review of the Roadsmith HT1800 on WRN’s sister site,
