Hi All, I'm Steve from Oklahoma.
I'm a 70 yr old Vietnam Vet and currently own a 2006 Yamaha Majesty purchased in 2007. Looking at upgrading to a Silverwing. Enjoying reading the forum here and learning about these twin cylinder Scoots. Hope to see ypu all on the road!
Thanks,
Stick

Welcome to the forum Stick47. Thank you for your service. The Majesty is nothing to sneeze at. A very dependable scoot with a great reputation. I have a friend who ran his Majesty in two Iron Butt Rallies. It's now quite knackered but still running.

Thanks for the warm welcomes everyone. Have the Majesty up for sale and though it's been a good scoot, the leg room is not working for me now as I'm dealing with some arthritis. One thing I'll miss is the candy apple red paint job. Yamaha hit a home run with the color.

Welcome to the best SWing site on the net Stick. Thanks for your service from one Nam vet to another. USS Boston (CAG-1) for me.

I have an 08 SWing that I like very much.

Well, I traded in the Majesty for a 2012 Burgman 400 ABS this morning. Tried out the SW but was more comfortable on the Burgman. I'm interested in all scoots so I'll be back to pick up info.
Thanks again to everyone for the welcomes.

Nothing wrong with the 400 Burgy. Yosinori Ishii just rode his 2008 AN400 in the Iron Butt Rally (10,000 miles in 11 days) and came in 55th out of a field of 106 starters. He began the rally with ~105,000 miles on the clock and bested a lot of more experienced riders on much bigger bikes.

Best of luck with your new ride
