PostSubject: Done did it!   Mon 24 Aug 2015, 10:42

Well, the Honda dealer's email arrived late last week.  Closeout deals on various leftover bikes.

One deal jumped out at me.  A brand-new 2013 Silver Wing for only $5995?  Really?

Was thinking of selling my 1995 Kawasaki police bike, as I want only one "old" bike at a time and the '71 R75/5 is a keeper.

Traded in the Kawasaki and now have a S'wing in the garage, next to the BMW and a PCX150 that my daughter has claimed when she gets her license next year.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone here!

Best,
Bash

At 5595.$ Id say the pile must be about exhausted. The new 530cc Yamaha w/O ABS sells for 10,400.$ Maxi scooters must cost a lot to produce and the cheap prices aren't going to be repeated any time soon. I mean Honda isn't about to make more of these so to lose money.

Enjoy your great deal and enjoy your new ride. I paid 6499.$ for my new 11' a year or so ago.

Life is good. Smile

welcome Bash that's a nice find, you did great.

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.

Thanks for the replies and the welcome!

Hopefully, now that I have one, the Silver Wings will be all sold out.  Then it'll become a cult bike that I can sell in a few years to fund my daughter's college. Wink

Welcome Bash On! to the best SWing site on the net.

I've had my 08 SWing for two seasons now and love it. It's got just over 24,000 miles on it and runs great.

I paid a total of $1700 for it. I bought it from my sister in FL and trailered it home. A bit of TLC and I'm on the road lovin it.

Bash,

Congrats on your SWing and welcome to the site. If you have any questions please just ask. The SWing is a nice comfortable bike and has plenty of power. We hope you will be an active member here but I must warn you.....everyone that has replied to this thread are nothing but trouble makers. lol Just kidding.

I saw a Yammie Touring Scooter photo on U Tube the other day. This monster has 3 cylinders and 750cc. I would wager it has at least 75, maybe more, horsepower. 75 hp would be moderate tune at 1 hp per 10 cc. A Suzuki GiXXER has about 120 hp perhaps a little more. Soooooooo Yammie makes a road rocket masked as a scooter, trouble is maybe it is just a production freak. Another trouble is it isnt a Honda.

Bash,

You will fit in just fine then. I tried to get rid of 'them there troublemakers' by making them pay big dollars to stay on as a member.....and they paid it. I was hoping they would have said no and left. But at least I'm extremely wealthy now because of their dues. Laughing
