Honda Motor Company announced today that it is recalling 126,000 GL-1800 Goldwing motorcycles for model years 2001-2010 and 2012 because of problems with the rear brakes. According to Honda, under certain conditions the rear braking system’s secondary master cylinder may cause the rear brake to drag unexpectedly. Unexpected dragging can increase the risk of a crash, and riding on a motorcycle with the rear brake dragging might generate sufficient heat for the rear break to catch fire. Honda’s recall notice to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration does not specify whether the defect has caused any crashes or injuries. But according to papers filed with the federal agency, Honda has received 26 complaints about the brakes, including two fires. In one case, an owner had to put out the fire with a fire extinguisher.
