Just wanted to share some pictures with everyone from my Ride this weekend with my Motorcycle Club and a friend / fellow Silverwing Rider as well Smile

We rode up to Tellico Plains, TN then rode the Cherahola Skyway and Tail of the Dragon! Had a blast.


The Wings parked together

The best looking bike in that pic where 4 are placed together is the SWing, in my humble opinion.

Nice pics.

Two things really impressed, the Osprey and the fact your Airflow screen has no scratches and is clean. Laughing

Have done both the Cherahola and Deals Gap, but never on a SW. Looking forward to it. Looks like you had a great time. Thanks for sharing.

The Silverwing handled great on the Dragon and the Skyway, despite us being two up on it, loaded down with luggage and stuff my wife bought at every gift shop lol..

I will be riding those roads in my dreams for the next couple of weeks Smile

I took some helmet cam videos I'll try to get uploaded sometime this week and share with everyone!

I want to do the dragon in the fall. I was nervous that the bike might not be able to handle well enough (did you see the parts graveyard?) but if you did it 2 up I guess it will work for me 1 up.

I bought a few of the Killboy photo's from the Dragon and the Skyway and just wanted to share!






Here is the tree of shame, getting bigger these days!

Yes, we saw the tree of shame and I took a picture of it before we left deals gap. It's in the above post I just added with my Killboy photos. Also I walked up the new observation deck and took that picture above of Deals Gap, very neat.

The Silverwing is no sport bike, but lets just say my friend in front of us on his BMW 1250 sport touring bike couldn't shake me! You'll love it and the wing handles like a pro!

I did the dragon two years ago and the Silverwing handled great. I may go up and ride it again next year with some of my Harly friends. They asked me to go and I think it would be fun to watch them.
