Hello, I am picking up a 2007 Silverwing with 11,000 miles Sunday. Been riding motorcycles for 50 years and this will be my first scooter. Last ride was a Goldwing 40,000 miles in 2 years. Hoping I will like a scooter.

Welcome to the forum from o-HI-o another former G'Wing owner that is enjoying the S'Wing. Just remember BOTH handles are brakes and that coasting feature of the S'Wing.

Welcome. SW is a great bike not fast not slow and will take you as far as your BUTT can stand.
No shifting is nice and that left lever will not be an issue after a few Smiles - miles.

My 2005 had 11,000 kms on it when I bought it in 2013 .... and have no regrets in the purchase. I think, expect and hope that you will be very happy with yours. BTW... Welcome from Nova Scotia.

Welcome and enjoy your "new" ride. I would practice slow speed driving to get your mind tuned to the two brake levers. You will like the "no-shifting" part real quick.

Thanks for the warm welcome everybody. After 2 weeks of riding the swing and being my first scooter, I must say this this little guy is a blast to ride. No shifting required is great. And it has plenty of power to haul my fat 240lb butt around. I will be keeping this for as long as I can still ride.
