The first of its kind, the Honda GL1000 is still the best long-distance touring bike out there. The original model was Honda’s first time manufacturing a water-cooled four-stroke engine, making it an incredibly long-lasting motorcycle. This bike has more than enough power with a 999cc engine bringing you up to speeds as high as 125mph. The Honda GL1000 is a true beast weighing in at 602lbs, with a 31.9” seat height, but it is easy to handle, and designed for long-distance comfort. Make sure you check out the Honda GL1000 before heading out for your next cross-country adventure!
