I watched that the other day...

Seems the title is "clickbait" as after watching it all I'm still none the wiser as to how the Goldwing is "supposedly" more American than Harley!
Other than that minor gripe, it's not a bad video if you're just interested in the history of the Goldwing...  :thumbs

As far as I know from May 1980 with the GL1100 to 2010 all Honda Goldwings were made in Marysville, Ohio, America where as some Harley components were imported.

Cheers Glen, I was aware of that but not sure how 30 years can compete with 120 years... :/

Not to worry, it was an interesting watch, even if the title was "clickbait".  :grin

... where as some Harley components were imported.

Including wheels that were made by Castalloy in Plympton, SA.
THERE ARE OLD RIDERS, AND THERE ARE BOLD RIDERS, BUT THERE ARE DAMN FEW OLD AND BOLD RIDERS.

Keep the dirty side down.
