PostSubject: From aging BMW motorcycles to Silverwing...   Mon Jul 30, 2018 9:15 pm

Greetings from Vero Beach, FL and western upstate SC.

2003 Silverwing ABS 19,900 miles
First ride after purchase 7/26/18
Corbin seat w/backrests
Givi windshield
Dr. Pulley sliders (unknown weights)
Vista Cruise
Kuryakyn ISO grips w/ throttle boss
Go-Pro camera
(All mods/accessories with exception of Vista Cruise added by previous owners.)

Sold a succession of older BMW motorcycles (15-20 years old) and have taken up residence on the FSC600A.  Love scooters and simply couldn't replicate the fun factor and comfort on a traditional motorcycle.  Also always scared the next expensive part was going to fail on the BMW's.  Find Honda parts to be much more friendly on the wallet and serviceability to be suitable for a competent DIY'er, not trying to force you to the dealership.

Lineage:
1982 Yamaha XS400 Seca (sold)
2005 Kawasaki KLR650 (sold)
2005 Honda Reflex (sold)
1997 BMW R1100RT (sold)
2000 BMW K1200LT (beige - sold))
2000 BMW K1200LT (steel blue - "community bike" shared among 3 family members)

Glad to be joining a great forum!

Welcome!

I'm waiting for a cool weekend to see if my DIY skills are up to the task of getting my old BMW running again.. in the meantime I'm putting miles on the FSC and PCX.

Welcome! Weird fact about BMW. Our local BMW dealership said they have "No interest." in carrying the BMW scooters. Just bikes for them! Whats good to know is the BMW scooters are powered by KYMCO motors, and our KYMCO dealer carries the full range of scooters.

Welcome from Yuma, AZ.

I have an aging 02 Goldwing to keep going as well as my 06 Silverwing.

Oil changes and tires seems to be the only expense besides gas.
