welcome Bobcat1948 welcome to the forum. I've split your introduction from the introduction that harleywing posted so you will get your own welcomes . Cool
Is this your first two wheel ride, and have you had it long? Could you tell us your mileage too?
There's a local scooter group( HERE'S A LINK ) that tries to ride any weekend the leader can set one up. This Saturday we're going to a BBQ place in Lake Wales. If you like to ride with a group you're welcome to join. We often meet up/join up with riders along the ride if they let the leader know where to meet.
If you are looking forward to learning and plan on doing your own maintenance you'll find you can do anything you need or want with the service manual and help from this forum.
I add the paragraph below for most new members because there's a lot of information in the links and may save you some work.
Here are some links(3 below in blue)that will help you learn a lot about your Silverwing. If you can't find what you need in the links below the search on this forum works good, and if you still need help just ask and someone will do what they can to answer your questions.

Bobcat1948 welcome from Princeton, MN to the best SWing site on the net.

I have had my 08 SWing for two seasons now and love it. From this site I've learned how to change both tires, change the oil, filter and final drive oil, change the air filter and change the drive belt. The pictorials and information on this site made it easy. I enjoy doing as much of my own work on my machines as I can. It gives me something to do when I'm not riding.

I joined the Dry Riders Elk River, MN chapter in January. Their premise is NO drinking 24 hours before a run or get together, which I like. The first couple of runs with them this season raised a few eyebrows. They ride Harleys and other full sized "real" motorcycles. They sort of looked my "scooter" like it's just an around town machine and wondered if I could keep up. I "keeped up"!! cheers It surprised the heck out of them. It was almost like I still had to shift tho. I had to back out of it when the bike in front of me shifted to keep from catching up and running into them. Ya, it's a good machine!!
