PostSubject: Finally brought her home   Mon 16 May 2016, 19:49

As I mentioned in my introductory post, I was planning on buying a friend's Silverwing.  It finally stopped raining enough here on Saturday so I went and picked her up.  I was pleasantly surprised to learn I was mistaken on the model year.  This bike is NOT a 2007.  Rather, it is a 2009 model.  I put a couple of hundred miles on it since Saturday and I am very well pleased with it.

I always name my bikes but I have yet to come up with a proper name for this one.  I was toying with "Swing Fever" but that seems more a feeling than a name.

I guess a bad picture is better than none at all.

Looks good to me too, Geezy.

Now if you'd only ride about 200 miles west you could get away from that flat, uninspiring, seashore terrain and into some hills & twisties.

Don't fret n' regret over naming your scooter, just enjoy the ride

She's Japanese, so you can't name her Gertrude or something like that!

Congratulations on the new to you SWing! The 2007-2009 is a big deal because you will have an O2 sensor now and that usually means better MPG! Ride safe!

Beautiful bike! That is the same color as mine. Given the deep red color Ruby or Claret would fit...
Have fun!

 I do like that color.
I couldn't agree more.  Maybe because I Have  the same year and color. I have put about 56,000 on mine since I got it in 2110.

Congratz!
When I posted on my Savage forum I was thinking about trading my S40 for the S wing, one of the members came back with 'good lord that thing's longer ,taller, and heavier than a savage (savages are pretty small cruisers) it's the scootertanic!
so my S wing's name is the scootanic lol!

Did you transport it back here from 2110 or did you transport it into the future that year?

Sorry CathyN, I couldn't help myself...

Yes it is a great color and nice looking SWing!

I'm sorry. I guess it's just that "Windy City" thing. AND NO I'm not calling all people from IL airheads either... lol!
