40 years off bikes. Previously rode Vespas, Hondas, Moto Guzzi. Not much touring, but basic transportation and day-trips. Did some road-racing (Summit Point West Virginia), and one of my Vespas was my only transportation for two years, living in Northern New England, so a lot of winter riding. It was a 180cc 2-stroke, 4 speed transmission, magneto electrics with no battery.
Moved to Southern AZ 3 years ago, and retired at the end of December 2019. I've been thinking about getting a scooter and doing a lot of research. Love to have another Vespa, but they've become relatively expensive. I'd love to have a twin cylinder maxi, and stumble across a Silverwing. 2004, non ABS, 20500 miles. No service records, but at a Honda dealer who replaced both tires, tuned, fluids, etc. They replaced the drive belt for me at a discount.
I'm anxious to pick it up, get it home, and start having fun.

Hi Ron, Welcome to the BEST SWing site in the Solar System. I've never had anybody from another planet contradict me on this so I guess it's TRUE!!

I’m from New Mexico, so welcome neighbor! This is a great forum with lots of great members and lots of useful information. The search function will bring you lots of help when needed. I have a 2007 non-ABS Silverwing and have had the best time I’ve had in a long time!
