Hey,

I can't sign on as JeffR since the password isn't working. I will try to get that fixed somehow. But it is good to be back. Thanks for Tim (Cosmic-Jumper) and others for working on this too.

Thanks,

Jeff

glad to see site working---although I no longer have Silverwing, this site entertains me. 2 new SilverWings and over 90,000 road miles on them, I probably have as much experience with them as anybody.

If SilverWing were current....and lighter, I probably would have considered one before my last new bike purchase...2017 Honda CB300F @$4000 and the Dalton GA Honda dealer took my near 50,000 mile left over SilverWing 2013 in trade. May ride CB out to the 50,000 mile point I usually trade at. So far Thai quality good, probably equal to Japan.

I find scooters work well for my style of riding and underseat storage and dry feet I like.....15,000 mile belt changes am not fan of.

Jeff, et al

Glad you got everything back. As a word of caution, all admins should change their passwords asap.
I instructed all my admins to do the same at Maxi Scoots. Better to be safe than sorry.

Great to be back. Thank Jeff and all that had a hand in the restoration. We sure take things for granted until the unthinkable happens ...

John, Silverwing or not, you have vast experiences and knowledge to share here. You must stick around.

Indeed, it might be prudent for members to change passwords as well, they got Jeff's so may well have access to ours via the clone site scratch

I use INCORRECT for all of my passwords. This way when I type in the wrong password my computer tells me my password is INCORRECT.

Nice to see the site is restored, Jeff. Although a Silver Wing non-owner for several years, I still enjoy visiting the site and reading posts both from long-term members and newer ones.

I would encourage all the members here to join www.maxi-scoots.com . But do not cause DRAMA there !!!! It is a laid back site for all 2 wheeled bikes. That was the very first site I ever joined back when I had my Majesty. It is a great site and has been around a long time.

But it is good to be back.

Like Silverwing 600, Maxi-Scoots is a site of caring and experienced 2 wheel (and 3) enthusiasts. When searching for a scooter while taking "the course" I found Maxi Scoots, joined and immediately found people willing and happy to help a new guy get established. My many dumb questions were quickly answered ... just like they are here ! Maxi Scoots hold a yearly rally which has cemented many friendships. My location on the globe is a bit distant to take part but I have been offered the use of a bike and airport pick-ip if I were able to get to a rally. Yup ,, great people there, - as well here.

Just had a thought. What if the hijacker was able to add him/herself during the down time? It would depend upon how the site was recovered. Looks like it was restored from a clean checkpoint by the site hosting company. Anyway I am very HAPPY that it is back! In the meantime get well JeffR!

Every word sincere Maggie.  Your welcome.  Anxious to see next year's rally location.  Doable ?  Wonldn't that be nice.  Would love to meet all of you.  

Jay?  You there ?  Check out Maxi Scoots.  That would be (at least) 2 of us from Atlantic Canada when you join up!!

Very happy to see the site back up. Even though I don't currently have a Silverwing I do work on a couple that two of my friends own. It's my fault they got such good scoots, I told them the SW is the best all 'round reliable scooter for the money there is. In fact I'm going to get another to go along with my BMW 650. I love the BMW but still miss the SW. Lots easier to work on the SW and cheaper more easily available parts as well.

This website is one of the best going for the camaraderie, knowledge base, and good low friction members.
