Wonder what this means for all the Goldwing guys out there. I know more than a few that say that the fact that it was Made in the USA was one reason they did it.

Plus I go back to Mid-Ohio (nearby the plant) every year for the AMA race, that weekend is sponsored by Honda and easily half the bikes there are Hondas. Hope that doesn't change.

What does this mean for us as consumers? Any change to be expected in pricing, quality?

Gun quality varies drastically from country to country same manufacturer...don't they use the same machines? I understand shipping will obviously increase, but I would expect having to pay the workers much less would more than compensate for it, no?
