If you have the room and the money, that's a great idea.

How about some combat touring through the urban jungle?  Not everyone's cup of tea and normally something I normally avoid but.....I decided to do it.  Some pics taken from the scooter.

This was in our local newspaper today here in Western North Carolina. Pretty sure you took us there during the Maxi Rally in 2010. Looks like I'm not the only one that liked it. Thanks for taking us there.

Thanks all for your thoughts.  A broad spectrum of opinions ... to be expected I guess.  I really am conflicted. 

My super practical side says stick with my current  Silver Wing and just finish fixing it up the way I want.  I know it, it's easy to work on and it satisfies all of my needs and most of my wants. 

My balanced side says upgrade to the newer Silver Wing and mod it the way I want.  Besides, with such a good price, I should be able to upgrade with little to no money involved once I sell my existing SW. 

My opportunistic, adventurist side says go for the TMax.  It'll do the basics well and give me the additional performance I know I would really enjoy.
Not as practical storage space wise and parts may become an issue down the road what with several model changes and as not many were imported into Canada but what the heck, I'm here for a short time ... not a long time. 

This morning SWMBO threw a curve ball at me.  Said "buy both", fix my current SW and sell it.  Ride the TMax for a while and if it is the one I really want to keep, sell the newly acquired SW (likely for a profit given the asking price).  If the TMax isn't all that I hoped for, sell it (likely for even money) and keep the upgraded SW to move forward with. 

Scheesh ... decisions, decisions.  I'll let everyone know what I finally decide.

I've often had my eye turned by a few newer scooters that were 'great deals' but when I stopped and analyzed what I need in a ride, what I want in a ride, and how I mostly do ride, I've decided that it makes a whole lot of sense-at least to me- to keep what I have and modify them to suit me. I've had my Majesty, Morphous and Goldwing apart so many times for maintenance and personalization, that I know each one intimately and am confident in riding any one of them anywhere.
  In the end, it's your choice and good luck with whatever route you take!

I think these comments reflect why I ride, er rode.  Actually, there are couple things.  First, being a pilot, riding a motorcycle was the closest experience to flying I found, but I stayed on the ground.  The other thing was when I climbed on the bike, I left everything behind.  I always felt one with the bike and one with the ride.  I even left my age behind.  Cruising through the scenery it was a 360 degree experience, rather than the 2 dimensional view through the side windows of a car.  And it just felt good, really good.

I've owned 45 motorcycles and ridden hundreds more. When I daydream about replacing my Tmax, I honestly can't think of any bike I'd replace it with, scooter or shifty. The reason for that is the Tmax does everything I need a bike to do. My priorities are comfort and handling, which the Tmax provides perfectly for me. If storage was my priority, I'd have a Burgman. If acceleration was my priority, I'd have a shifty motorcycle with more horsepower. And if finances were my priority, I'd look for the best deal.
You should truly determine what your priorities are and the decision will make itself.

I've never rode a SW but my X10 should be close enough to make the comparison and the AK550 is in the same league with the T-Max, so....

The difference between how the two ride is going to be a whale of a difference! One is a smooth rolling mile eating machine while the other is an aggressive attack plan on the same road. I'm not saying one's better than the other, they're both great but they ARE different so...

I think Cube has a pretty good idea but I'd go one step further if the pocketbook allows and grab up both. You can sell or keep whichever suit your fancy later.
