Smile I bought my used Silverwing on my return from 3 years overseas doing volunteer work in Kolkata, India, back in 2010.

I consider this the best touring motorcycle I have ever owned. Most recent bikes before the SW were a Honda ST1100 followed by an ST1300.
My SW is so much more comfortable than either of these. I can do a 6 hour trip without any discomfort.

Granted, getting on and off the SW is so much easier at my 70 years of age.

I have replaced all but the indicator lamps with LED's. The LED H7 head lamps makes the original lamps look so weak. According to my light meter, almost twice the light output. The light I now have for my night riding, is awesome.

I have also fitted a LED hi stop tail, stop and indicator unit to my top box frame.

Welcome aboard young man. I had left the SW to get a CTX1300 (ST1300 engine). I still do the 600+ miles/day as I did on the SW but it just isn't as much fun. So, I'm negotiating for a left over/new in the box 2013.

You have some nice scenery for riding. Post a few pics with the new (to you) SW with some of the beautiful local scenery.

I like your LED idea. Others here have differing opinions of course.

Oh, and congratulations on your newest/bestest purchase....

Welcome to the best SWing site on the net. There's lots of info here with people ready and willing to help.
I have an 08 SWing which I really like.
