Hello from Kelowna BC Canada! We just moved back and we decided we weren’t going to get a second car again so I decided to pick up a much more practical 2009 Silver Wing with 21,000 km. My neighbour joked if I turned 73 not 37. Has a super tall Kappa windscreen but it’s stock otherwise. As picked up yesterday:

Went to fill up gas and take photos this morning:

I have been in the sport bike scene for a few years having owned a Honda CB300F and most recently a Yamaha R3. I put 30,000 km combined over 3 years and rode one of them across the country. A little more power will be nice but I will miss the nimble handling of each. At least there are no rules against scooters at track day!

Great to see lots of knowledge and of course good people on this forum.

Welcome!
We have a few things in common. I'm also Canadian, new on this site and have a 2009 SW. Same colour too.

Hello dkazzed. Welcome to the forum. Nice photos. You should add those photos to a Personal Album.

Welcome dkazzed. Nice bike, nice pics. You find all you need to know about your SW here.

BTW, I take it you've removed that sticker from your screen Question

Welcome dkazzed to the BEST SWing site on the net.
That's a very nice looking SWing. You'll also find it will keep up with most bikes on the Interstate without breathing too hard. I have an 08 but then I AM 73...

Thank you everyone! I haven’t really dove in to the features of this forum yet but I’m trying to image feature. I like this photo as well but it didn’t make the original cut.

Yes I have since removed the label, it is mostly invisible so I didn’t notice it too much. My 300s did well on the highway but the torque on the SWing is so effortless.

My new SWing and my old R3 which I officially sold this morning.
