PostSubject: Introducing of Balasteiro   Thu 22 Sep 2016, 06:30

Hello

I am known as the Balasteiro in the world of two wheels and also out

I am 44 years old, married and the father Gonzalo, who has 12 years and is a first Reguila, and have a drink with nomme Tomas and loves to ride a bike.

In the motorcycle world, started with a Yamaha Neo's, making it 4000 kilometers, then moving to another 50, Gilera Runner 50DD, doing 20 million kilometers, I sold it and getting a few years without bike.

Now with the good news of the law of 125, in Portugal, there I went straight to the stand, buy my first 125, Honda Lead 110 scooter this very robust but for what I wanted, was not very appropriate because it was very limited at full speed as soon compromising the long-term reliability, as do on average 80 km each day.

after I realized this, I switched to the elegant and very convenient Honda S-Wing 125, but this was already giving me a lot of comfort and low consumption.

As I was not happy, I wanted to try a change, Honda Varadero XL 125 V, and of course it was love at first sight, after I bought it, I have done 19 million kilometers, has given me many joys.

Later came the pleasure of riding a bike, I take the letter and bought a Honda NC 700 X, but the animal scooters was and changed the NC for a sofa, a beautiful and spectacular Honda FJS Silverwing 600 2011 to 17500 km , which just have to say well

I am military profession, I'm in the Navy 26 years will, which I quite like because I do what I like

Well I think that's enough, but great will. I'm so sorry because my English because it was through the Google translator.

I hope to come here to learn a lot and be helped or help in what is

That hug and good curves:cheers:

Welcome to the forum, Balasteiro.

No need to apologies for your English, you make yourself understood here quite well. There is also another Silverwing forum in Italy which you might be interested in. It has lots of good technical information: http://www.swci.it/forum/.

The Silverwing is a touring-class scooter so I hope you are able to enjoy many happy miles with yours.

Tim

Welcome to the site, you have chosen an excellent maxi scooter. Obviously you have had a range of scooters and done lots of riding, but I do believe that some of your " mileage" has been expressed wrongly. It would be worthy of the Guinness Book of Records, if you would have done 20 million and 19 million km on your smaller scooters.
