“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

  1. Hey dude,
    Honda Goldwing is the Ultimate Touring Bike.

    I discovered this bike a week ago.I was astonished when first saw its dash.
    GPS,clock,speakers,so many buttons, big body, etc. MIND BLOWING.

    One can tour the full Golden Quadrilateral on this bike without any difficulty.

    I salute Honda for this.
    Really a best job.

  2. Absolutely man!! This is as good as a luxury car with the added fun of being close to nature!! Really the best in class.

    But yeah... in conditions like India, I wonder, how effective the Surround Sound Music System would be ;)

  3. Ya :D

    They should provide one more speaker on Indian variant.

    Which feature this bike doesnt have, which is mandatory on Touring Bike.
    It has every-every-every feature.

    God, see its pillon seat. Best class sofas are failed.....

    Just want to see it with my naked eyes.

    Also it will cost a missile on pocket to have it.

    Is there any lucky draw with this bike as first prize ???
    :D :D :D :D :D

  4. There's an ownership thread on XBhp.com about the Honda Gold Wing, from Kolkata . I'm sure you would love to read it. :)

  5. I am just imagining the situation in case one happens to spill the bike

    ..at 400 Plus Kgs it will need at least 3 well built guys to lift it up..!!

  6. Payeng Dude

    Guess Honda has given an automatic switch for that too ;)

    Jokes apart, you are absolutely right there bro!! At 400kg, it's one big time heavy ass to lift
