Well bought a 2006 scooter 2 days ago rode home in the pouring rain, which was scary to be honest, handling was horrible, so checked it today rear shocks showing one said 2 the other 3, and the tire pressures 13 in the front 14 in the rear so no wonder, bring on the nice weather at the weekend so i can try in more

Hi Hayden and welcome.

I'm a new SWing rider too, got my 2003 a month ago and really enjoying it. Sounds like the previous owner of yours was a little lax with the maintenance. Shocked

Get those issues sorted and you'll find it's a great ride. Enjoy.

You've just found the best Silver Wing forum bar none!

I'm just down the A16 in Louth, but usually come up your way by car, 'cos a visit to the kids usually means they want jobs doing! Smile

Welcome from a seasoned rider new to Swing. This is the best group of riders with very deep grasp about our bikes. Has saved me many mistakes and, at 2000 miles I love this ride.
Cheers.
