PostSubject: My new Leftover 2013 SilverWing vs Forza   Fri May 09, 2014 3:45 pm

My 2nd new leftover Silverwing, 2013 now has 7300, trouble free miles.

I did test ride Forza, the black wheels turn off for me.

Anyone bought a Forza as SilverWing replacement?? I think Forza with proper windshield would have worked for my recent 4300 mile trip to CA and back...and done a little better in the mpg game.

Thoughts.

I do not have any experience of course but so glad I read this!
I was adamant at first that silverwing was the scoot for me but have since thought of the smaller scoot.
I had to come down to earth lol!
And I'm jealous of your trip to Cali after residing there for so long and loving it!
San Diego is my 2nd home lol!
Love and got spoiled to that awesome weather lol! After I get plenty of rider experience I may have to ride out there lol!

I bought a Forza 12/11/13 and have 4k miles. But did not replace my Swing. It is still parked in cousins garage. The Forza is lighter but still long distance worthy in my personal opinion. I have 2 destinations I travel to regularly. One is only 18 miles to the store and the other is to visit friends 174 miles. Each of these are one way mileage. The Honda large windshield helped, but I just changed it to the Givi Airflow. The air bubble of the Airflow system lets me wear my contacts with an open face helmet without completely drying my eyes in the first 10 miles and makes the ride much quieter. Some like it two up, but for me, two up was not fun. It does ok, but if I'm not having fun, then time to change. The Swing would handle two up and my trailer without giving up the fun factor for me.
