Honda is doing a recall of their famous Honda GoldWing GL1800 motorcycle, one of the most luxurious motorcycles on the market. The recall involves approximately 126,000 motorcycles of model years 2001 through 2012. The combined braking system on the Honda GoldWing may cause the rear brake to drag. The risk of crashing or having a fire due to the dragging rear brake is what caused the recall to occur. Honda dealers will inspect the secondary master cylinder on the GL1800 and will replace it if necessary. This will be a no-charge service that is scheduled to begin on January 4th of 2012. Honda GoldWing owners can contact American Honda customer service at 1-866-784-1870 for more information about this GoldWing recall. A little bit of motorcycle information trivia is that there were no 2011 Honda GoldWings produced. The GoldWing was made in USA in Ohio for many years and then production was transferred to Japan. The 2012 GoldWing is made in Japan.
