Hi Everyone,
I've benefitted from wonderful knowledge and advice on this site as a guest and wanted to join your group.   I have both a 2008 Goldwing and a 2002 Silverwing.  I bought the Silverwing about 6-7 years ago with only 2,000 miles on it.  It only has 6,800 miles on it now.  I live in the 1849 Gold Country in Sierra foothills about 1 hr west of Lake Tahoe.  I have a tow-behind trailer for my Goldwing and I take that on longer trips....but I admit, at my age its getting "heavy"... ;-).  I love the Silverwing...I used to ride it to work before the pandemic shut the office.  I now ride it to the grocery store because I can get 2 gallons of milk and a bag of groceries under the seat!  (It's also great for the winding roads in the foothills).  I also own my 1967 Triumph TR6R (single-carb "Bonneville") but, like all old Triumph owners I can proudly say that "I have all the parts...just not in one place".

I'm doing some maintenance on the Silverwing to replace the belt due to age (~20 years is probably "enuff" for a belt, no matter the miles) and will post a question or two as I'm puitting it back together.

Thanks for letting me join!

Welcome Gary. SW is a great ride and easy to maintain for the most part. Belt replacement not that hard just need a tool to hold front pulley assembly to torque bolt cheap and easy to make one. 20 years it's due not fun walking.

Search engine here is good and many photos and advice on how to. Might take a little time to find what your looking for but reading some past things will help. Buy a service manual has good photos and torque specs.
