Have recently acquired an 05 Silver Wing. I have typically had larger bikes but at 67 I find myself really just putzing around a large downtown core so this is a perfect bike for me. That said, the ride home when I bought it was just over 475 kilometers. Not a bad little bike. And yes it really is quite comfy doing 100 mph. LOL
Today's ride was to a local Powersport dealer to pick up a new OEM damper for the seat. I try to always use OEM items when I replace things. The logic being Honda engineers know a hell of a lot more than I do. It's easy to make something cheaper. Question is simply what do you want to take out of the construction to make it cheaper. I have never been disappointed with Honda OEM product and am constantly amazed that Honda Canada carries parts for older bikes. Hats off to them.
That's all for now.

Welcome aboard this board Freddy. I'm guessing you picked up your new-to-you 2005 from Ottawa. I think you'll find the SWing works pretty well for runs up to the lake etc. too if you're so inclined. It's not a ST or Valk but it is capable.

I switched to a Silverwing from big bikes 4 years ago and am much happier with my ride. Welcome and enjoy.
