    Too bad, it was quite amusing. Sell price was $1800. Automatic transmission. Showed this nice Goldwing parked in front of a standard suburban house. I was not aware that the wing came with auto tranny. I probably would have sprung for that if it was a DCT.

    Yep, the "HondaMatic", the local Suzuki dealer has one for sale now. It's in great shape for its age and runs great too.

    Many years ago I road up to the "Big Mac" (about 300 miles one way) and back in a day with a guy that had a 750 Hondamatic. I think it was actually a two speed that you selected either the high or low range. If a person had trouble using a clutch it was the route to go.

    I was riding a Kawasaki 500 triple on that trip. We ran into heavy rain on the way home and I started "hogging" gas. Gene (the guy with the Hondamatic) removed his gas tank several times to put gas into my bike to get us into gas stations. I found out after running out of gas twice that my air-cleaner was waterlogged acting like a choke. I removed the air-cleaner and the mileage went back to normal.

    Last year I called for a MINI Mate in Co. 2012, he wanted $5000. LOL

    He said he did not know much about it. He got camper and motorcycle for a debt he was owed.

    So I gave him $2000 and I got a good deal.

    I was at a bike rally one time and a vendor was selling an automatic clutch for a regular bike. You still had to shift the gears but you didn't need a clutch. Thought it would be neat with a hand shift...
