Hi all! Just bought a 2015 registered 3700 mile Silver Wing in ---- silver. Based in NW of UK and last bike Moto Guzzi Calfornia Custom. Looking forward to tootling on the best scoot I could find through research. It's a bit scratched down one side having been laid down on gravel but I am really impressed by the apparent simplicity and solid build quality. Bike before the MG was an ST1300 Pan (first non-European bike in 50 years of biking) so I shouldn't have been surprised. Now looking for an OEM top box but will probably have to settle for a taller Givi. - taller because of the deep adapting plate. -- subject of my first post sometime later!
