Hi, so five years ago I took motorcycle riding lessons because using a 49cc to ride 70km (45 miles) a day kind of sucked and I was going to upgrade to a 300-400cc maxi-scooter, but I fell in love with motorcycling and I went with that. Then I went with a 125cc scooter, two motorcycles, and now I finally got my maxi-scooter. I still wanted a 300-400 due to insurance reasons but someone convinced me to try an 09 Honda Silverwing ABS with 21,000 km on it and I knew it was the one. Other than sharing a car with my wife, thisíll be my only vehicle so why not splurge a little?

Iíve put over 400km on it already which is not a whole lot but I donít have a whole lot of opportunities to ride with two kids halfway to their adult years so itís mostly sneaking out in the morning before everyone is awake. Good thing there are amazing riding roads nearby here. At least with a scooter too, itís useful for running errands which is about the only thing Iím doing these days working from home.

Iím also on the Silverwing forum but was encouraged to pop on over here as well. Iím glad to finally be a maxi-scoot owner and look forward to talking with all of you.

Welcome from the other coast ...Nova Scotia.
Great shots and a great machine too.  My 2005 never disappoints.

Welcome aboard this board dkazzed!  One of my SWings is the same year/colour scoot as you have.  It's not on the road yet as I have some maintenance and cosmetic touch up to complete on it plus I'm adding some farkles too.

Welcome from Chicago.  I was in BC back in 2005.  Beautiful country.  I would love to go back on my Goldwing.
I had a 2009 Silver Wing up until last year.  I put 80,000 miles on it. I did enjoy it.

Thank you for the welcome everyone!

Good to hear. Iíve had a couple of Hondas before but this is my first Honda scooter. Looking forward to that legendary Honda reliability!

Welcome aboard this board dkazzed!  One of my SWings is the same year/colour scoot as you have.  It's not on the road yet as I have some maintenance and cosmetic touch up to complete on it plus I'm adding some farkles too. 

What farkles are you adding? Iím thinking of putting switchback signals in the turn signals so they run bright white unless the turn signal is on then blink amber.

Welcome from Chicago.  I was in BC back in 2005.  Beautiful country.  I would love to go back on my Goldwing.

Which Gold Wing do you have? I love the new one, maybe after my kids are grown up. My 10 year old rode with me yesterday.

I have the 2018 DCT Tour.  If it were a clutch I would still have my Swing.  I gave my Swing to my brother who is now enjoying it.
