Hi-new member from bc canada. New silverwing owner also-havin a great time. I have 3 main questions concerning the bike-I'll only ask one now so I don't feel like I'm taking too much of your time. I've been to baja a couple of times-once to bicycle from tijauna to cabo and the other to camp and kayak. I'm thinking what a great trip to do on my S/W. NOW- how do I get it there with my sportage. Been looking at a rig( fairly cheap-used) that you plug into your trailer hitch and you ramp your bike onto it. Know what I mean? Its rated for 500 lbs- the weight of my bike.It looks very basic and was mainly used for transporting a dirt bike. Is this viable for me?

welcome      welcome

  gary c,  

  Welcome to the forum. There was a post about hitch hauling. You can find it by using the search box in the upper left hand corner. I won't hijack this post by entering it here. If you add to that post, you might get more current information. Personally, I would worry about hanging 500-600 lbs. off the back of my vehicle.

  That sounds like a dream trip. Hope you find a way to make it happen and of course take us along. cheers

welcome gary c welcome to the best Silverwing forum on the web. I split your introduction apart from the other post so you will get your own welcomes. I would not recommend hauling your scooter that way.

I add the paragraph below for most new members because there's a lot of information in the links and may save you some money and work. You'll find you can do anything you need or want with the service manual and help from this forum.
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.
