Hi everyone,

I haven’t ridden motorcycles in a few years but still have the bug. I wanted to try something different this time. So I found a 2011 Silver Wing with 6800 miles on it. Rode it... it was different than a motorcycle. So I’m making a decision shortly to buy it. Wanted to say hello from Northlake Texas.. I’m north of Fort Worth.

Test drove it today... was a little different feel as expected... but a really neat ride... any advise is welcomed... paying $4000 is in great shape and has service records...

Be well!!

Good choice! If at a dealer I would try and negotiate the price down a bit. Maxi scooters don't resale well. At 10 years old the tires probably need replacement, among other things. Have fun.

Welcome Imagineittoday! What Michel Vachon said about getting used to it is good advice. I rode mine around town for a while to get used to it. She's a different kind of ride compared to a shiftable motorcycle. Once you do get out on it a bit you'll probably fall in love with it as the rest of us have.

Hello IIT, Welcome to the site. Great knowledgeable people here. I have an 11' swing as well and really enjoy riding it. I see you also had a choice of Black, Black or Black. Mine is black also. I have ABS and my only add on is a Givi aire flo. i I enjoy twist grip no shift riding. There is nothing I dont like. Enjoy your ride.
