PostSubject: Hello From New SW Owner.    Sun Jan 03, 2016 4:44 pm

Recently purchased a new SW DEC. 28th. I'm new to scooters but not bikes, logged 100k since 1994 on several different brands.
Weather has turned cold Northeast, only got to put 40 miles on it. Like the SW so far.
Nice Web site, learning a lot. Can't wait to add a few mods. GPS, power lets, etc.

New 2013 are still out there. Paid a good price, $6300 out the door. Dealer said he ordered 2 more from Honda and had 1 on the floor yet. Smile

See you on the road in the spring.

Welcome to the forum Mech 1 twa! You'll find that this is by far the best SWing site on the net to find out all about your SWing. I've had my 08 SWing for two seasons now and love it. Lots of information here on how to do your own repairs and lots of friendly people ready and willing to help.

Thanks for all the welcome posts.
I wanted something easier to ride, Sw is faster than most think.
Sport touring bikes put out a lot of heat. Mostly wanted a SW to ride in HOTTER weather, heat is vented behind or under scooter.
I'm a weekend rider, live very close to work. Can't choose most days off, have to live with the weather.
Any day on 2 wheels is a good day!!!!

Welcome! You picked well, the SW is about the most trouble free scooter or bike around.

Hi Mech, welcome to the site, we are all completely bonkers over our SW's on here.
I started mine up in the shed and sat on it yesterday and pretended I was out for a ride.
Is the a cure for being Mad?

Enjoy your Scoot.

What's this "we"?  I'm not completely bonkers over my Silver Wing or any other maxi scooter or motorcycle previously I've owned. It's just another maxi scooter to me. I don't have a pet name for mine, I don't love it, I like it and enjoy riding it.

Agreed, any 'bonkerisms' attached to me aren't caused by motor scooters or motorcycles.
