Hi,

I actually joined 12/23/2008. Haven't visited the group for a while.
I ride a 2002 Honda Silverwing, bought my first in November 02.
Bought my current 02 Silverwing in June 2004. It has about 76,000 miles on the odometer.
I ride regularly, getting together with friends from the old Scootercade Days, and others, two to three times a year for about a week.
Still enjoy the Silverwing, have sold all my motorcycles and added an 05 Burgman 400, 07 Burgman 400, and an 08 Burgman 650 Executive to my riding stable. Pure Scooter Trash!!
Good to see Cosmic-Jumper and some others I remember still on the group.
Wishing everyone a good year.

That's not the hard part. The hard part is deciding which one to ride today. I'd have a headache from trying to decide. Or, maybe just number them. Then whatever day of the week it is then that's the one that gets the ride.

Shame on you forever leaving. As punishment, you will have to ride 200 miles today and report back to all of us. motorcycle

Didn't ride 200 miles Tuesday. Did get rides in on three of the scoots. I didn't leave the group, just seemed all the Silverwing Groups slowed down for a while. I was one the first to join this group.
I have enjoyed, and still enjoy posts on the group. Looking forward to visiting regularly again.
I have organized a ride May 19-23, the "FullaBull in Hannibal" Missouri. Fourteen of us  are registered at the Motel 6 in Hannibal, MO. We will ride out from there Monday - Wednesday. We welcome anyone who wants to join us for one, or more, day rides. PM me if interested.

Well, I'm not veteran or anything. But I came back too last year. Then the site quit, then it started up again. I mostly read these days. Can't ride this time of year, as we're stuck in bad snow and ice.

We bought a pair of 2002's and had a blast with them. Mostly touring, went to Alaska on them. Then we decide two-up was the thing to do. So we rode the Harley for a couple years two-up. That was not the thing to do. Wife got tired of it and a Harley don't have the luggage capacity of two Silver Wings on the road. So then I came across a slightly used 2012 that hadn't made it to its first oil change yet. Couldn't pass it up so I bought it. Then we went searching for one for my wife. We found a brand new 2013 still in stock at a dealership in central Wisconsin with 2 miles on it. We made our final two-up ride on my 2012 to our local dealership to sign the paperwork and buy it.

We got it for $5,499 and we paid an extra $500 to do a dealer trade so we could get it thru our local dealer. We got a Givi windscreen and found a matching Bestem top box (the fancy lined one with lights on the back of it) for my wife's bike. So we once again have matching Silver Wings. They aren't new anymore. We put a little over 10,000 miles on them last summer. And made another trip to Alaska. Came home across Canada to Thunder Bay, and then down the Lake Superior North Shore back to Wisconsin.

But we're happy again. Supposedly the Silver Wing was "outdated", whatever. But it remains, in my estimation, the best super-scoot for touring ever built.

I remember in Sept 2001 when it first appeared in the US market, I bought a new ST1100 from the local dealer. I was signing the paperwork, etc., and where did my wife go? She was gone. She had spotted a brand new 2002 sitting in the line outside, grabbed another sales person and took it for a ride. She back from her test ride and said, "I really like this". At the time, I discounted it and told her, "it's not a real motorcycle." She frowned and told me, "it's just as real as that crotch rocket you just got, and I would like one of these."

17 years later it's still the same words of wisdom - if at first you don't succeed, then do what your wife said in the first place.........

Chris,

Nice to know you can both enjoy riding! We have several days that are good for riding this time of year here in southeast Missouri.
